Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota has been the front-runner to win the 2014 Heisman Trophy for the better part of the last month but faced serious competition from Wisconsin’s record-breaking running back Melvin Gordon who appeared to make it a two-man race down the stretch.
Just don’t tell Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper that it’s a two-man race as the record-breaking receiver for the Crimson Tide aims to be the first wide receiver to win the bronze stiff-armed statue for the first time since Michigan’s Desmond Howard took the honors in 1991. In fact, only two receivers have ever won the award with Tim Brown the first to win the award in 1987.
Last year’s winner, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was left off so Archie Griffin’s status as the only two-time winner in Heisman history is safe.
After reading through the list, please leave your thoughts and opinions on list in the comments section below. Let us know who you think is going to win the Heisman and who should have been invited that was snubbed.
Without further ado, here is how I expect the Heisman results to shake out when the winner is revealed on Saturday, Dec. 13 on ESPN during the announcement that begins at 8:00 p.m. ET.
