Wednesday evening, Northern Illinois QB Jordan Lynch will be on the national stage for the second week in a row to try and state his case as a legitimate contender for the 2013 Heisman Memorial Trophy.

Last week, he was faced with what many called his toughest test of the year against a very good Ball State team. In the 48-27 victory, Lynch was stellar in the spotlight, going 26-of-32 for 345 yards and two touchdowns, while adding in 123 yards on the ground on 20 carries with another two scores.

Stats like that are virtually impossible to ignore.

Tonight, he’ll face a 7-3 Toledo team that hasn’t been too shabby themselves this season. They’ve won five straight and have scored over 50 points in their last two outings, while averaging 35 per game throughout the year.

This game tonight could very well turn into a shootout, which could play right into Lynch’s hands as it pertains to his Heisman candidacy. Coming out on top when adversity is thrown your way is something that goes a long way with the voters, especially against a legitimate conference threat like Toledo.

Where do you see Lynch’s Heisman chances right now? And, should he win tonight in dominating fashion once again, where do you see them after that fact? Sound off with your opinions in the comments section below.
