Is the Heisman Trophy a two-horse race?

Auburn quarterback Cam Newton and Oregon running back LaMichael James have been one-two in the Heisman Predictor rankings since the sixth week of the season.

But, as just about everyone knows, Newton's candidacy might -- fair or unfair -- be damaged by his background and the issues that surround his recruitment. So James is, at worst, in very good shape to get invited to the ceremony in New York.

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck ranks fourth behind Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
