Heisman 2012 Power Rankings: Down to Manziel and Te'o

Johnny Manziel [Texas A&M] Mr. Football has surpassed 3,000 yards passing and 1,100 yards rushing and has 38 total touchdowns. He’s had his Heisman moment. Merely a freshman, but he’s hard to deny in a weak field.

Manti Te’o [Notre Dame] Notre Dame moves ahead of Kansas State. Te’o moves ahead of Klein. A wave of good feelings next week could push him over the edge.

Collin Klein [Kansas State] Good job. Good effort. The blowout loss to Baylor drops him, as does not playing well individually the past couple weeks. He’s built up too much momentum to fall away (ballots were out before the fall), but it is hard to see him recovering to win.

Marqise Lee [USC] The Trojans have lost three of four. Can’t blame Lee who had 821 yards and seven touchdowns over that stretch. Another dominant performance against Notre Dame would cement his trip New York, if he has not done so already.

Aaron Murray [Georgia] Poll voters have forgotten the South Carolina game. Heisman voters may do the same. Murray has put up some numbers the past three weeks, completing 71 percent of his passes while throwing for 11 touchdowns (no INT) and more than 900 yards. If he can upset Alabama to get Georgia to the BCS Title Game when other candidates aren’t playing…
