The best Heisman final audition of the year was this one—27 carries for 203 yards on the ground.
That is a beastly performance, especially in the defense-heavy SEC.
Richardson has 236 carries on the season and has amassed 1,380 yards on the ground with a ridiculous 20 touchdowns.
He has added 26 receptions for 322 yards (and two more TDs), bringing his total production to 1,702 yards.
In the 2009 season, Mark Ingram (the Heisman winner) had 271 carries for 1,658 yards with 32 receptions for another 334 yards.
He had 17 TDs on the ground and three through the air, for a total of 20. Richardson has matched that on the ground alone.
Remember, Ingram's season included an SEC Championship against Florida and a National Championship against Texas.
Richardson is almost equal with him and will have played one less game than Ingram did when the Heisman is presented.
Richardson's career-high 203 yards rushing in a single game went a long way in closing what little gap was there, and I don't see Luck taking it from him at this point, though that remains to be seen.
