Tracking the Candidates
Dec. 10, 2010
Newton capped off a remarkable season with six total touchdowns in Auburn's rout of South Carolina in the SEC championship game. He's already started collecting individual hardware; a coronation as the latest Heisman winner is all but assured Saturday night in New York.
Luck didn't get to finish his season (and probably career) by playing for the Pac-12 title, but he may get to finish it as a Heisman winner. Coach David Shaw has been stumping for his quarterback -- will it pay off in New York?
USC's improved defense held James to just 78 yards on 20 carries and one score, and only 5 receiving yards. The Trojans also handed the Ducks their second loss of the season, effectively ending their bid to play in a second straight BCS championship game.
Moore's numbers were more than respectable (28-for-38, 320 yards, 2 touchdowns) but it was the final score that's going to hurt Moore's Heisman chances. The Broncos lost by one to TCU, ending the nation's longest regular-season home win streak.
