As the college football season is coming to an end, players across the nation are running out of time to impress their Heisman Trophy voters and make their case for the most prestigious award in the sport. After a disaster of a performance against LSU, Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel is unlikely to take home the award, but the pending legal case hasn’t stopped Florida State’s Jameis Winston from hanging on to the top spot.
Rounding out the top three are Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron and Jordan Lynch of Northern Illinois, both of who are very deserving candidates for the award.
