Over the past few years, the Heisman Trophy presentation has been an extremely anticlimactic event, but this season's voting is expected to be one of the closest in recent memory. After an unpredictable regular season that finished with a bevy of one-loss contenders, we are also left with a number of Heisman hopefuls.
The general consensus is that there are three leading candidates going into Saturday night's ceremony (presented here in alphabetical order):
Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford: 302-of-442 passing, 4,464 yards, 48 TDs, 6 INTs; 40 rushes, 65 yards, 5 TDs.
Texas QB Colt McCoy: 291-of-375 passing, 3,445 yards, 32 TDs, 7 INTs; 128 rushes, 576 yards, 10 TDs; 2 punts, 69 yards.
Florida QB Tim Tebow: 174-of-268 passing, 2,515 yards, 28 TDs, 2 INTs; 154 rushes, 564 yards, 12 TDs.
But there many other players who deserve consideration, including a pair of Texas Tech stars (QB Graham Harrell and WR Michael Crabtree) and Iowa RB Shonn Greene.
In today's final Heisman Watch, SI.com's Gene Menez presented his ballot. His final order:
1. Texas QB Colt McCoy
2. Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford
3. Florida QB Tim Tebow
