College Football Heisman Standings: Week 13

With only championship week left we break down the top  contenders to win the Heisman. With many of the top contenders not playing this week, there is not much room for players to change voters minds.

1. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

Last Week: 27 carries, 203 yards, 1 receiving TD
Season: 263 carries, 1,583 yards, 20 TDs

Trent Richardson carried the Tide past rival Auburn to the tune of 203 yards, while averaging 7.5 yards-per-carry. Richardson actually out gained the entire Auburn offense. Auburn was Richardson’s final hurdle of the season and it’s safe to say he pasted it with flying colors.

2. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

Last Week: 20-30, 233 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT
Season: 261-373, 3,170 yards, 35 TDs, 9 INTs

Luck like Richardson will not have the opportunity to play in a conference championship. In what was Luck’s final home game he dazzled, completing 20-30 throws for over 230 yards and four touchdowns. He broke the school’s record for career touchdown passes (78) and single-season touchdown’s (33).

3. Matt Barkley, QB, USC

Last Week: 35-42, 423 yards, 6 TDs
Season: 308-446, 3,528 yards, 39 TDs, 7 INTs

Matt Barkley and USC are not eligible for post-season play, so they made sure they went out in style against rival UCLA. Barkley torched the Bruins for six touchdowns in what may have been his final game at USC.

After the win, Barkley and the Trojans were greeted to t-shirts that read Pac-12 South Champions in their locker room.

4. Case Keenum, QB, Houston

Last Week: 33-46, 457 yards, 5 TDs
Season: 342-467, 4,726 yards, 43 TDs, 3 INTs

Case Keenum has thrown for over 300 yards in every game this season and threw for over 400 yards for the sixth time this season in Houston’s win over Tulsa.

With the win Houston remains in the BCS hunt and if they beat Southern Miss in the Conference-USA championship they will clinch their first ever BCS bowl birth.

5. Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

Last Week: 25 carries, 156 yards, 4 TDs
Season: 248 carries, 1,622 yards, 34 total TDs

Somehow Montee Ball has flown under the radar despite the fact that he is second in the country in rushing. He also leads the nation with 29 rushing touchdowns and has a chance to add to that number when Wisconsin plays Michigan State in the Big Ten championship.

The fact that Wisconsin lost two games hurt Ball’s chance’s, but the season he has had should not go unrecognized.
