Real battle for Heisman Trophy begins

(Continued)

5. A.J. McCarron (Alabama) – He hasn’t put up big offensive stats yet, but it’s hard to find much wrong with his worksheet at the end of the day. He owns a 28-2 record as a starting quarterback and possesses two national championships. How can anyone find fault with that?

Others could re-enter the Heisman race as the season unfolds. Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd and Georgia running back Todd Gurley have marquee games coming up, where they could make up lost ground. 

So the long race for the Heisman goes on. Or as songwriter Dan Fogelberg put it: “It’s the chance of a lifetime in a lifetime of chance.”
