08:18 AM ET 10.15 | Geno Smith didn't much help himself in the Heisman race as West Virginia's offense fell from the mountaintops with a stunning loss over the weekend. A lopsided loss to Texas Tech did nothing for Smith's chances to walk off at season's end with the little bronze man with the stiff-arm. The stunning 49-14 reversal afforded Braxton Miller his chance against Indiana, the traditional doormat of Big Ten football. ... The Buckeyes' unbeaten aspirations survive. The Mountaineers have crumbled. Miller certainly plays no more porous defenses in the Big Ten than Geno Smith does in the Big 12. He won't win the Heisman -- yet -- but he deserves to be in New York at the ceremony to reveal who does.
