According to HeismanPundit.com:
“He (Manziel) beat the No. 1 team in the FBS and the No. 3 team in the FCS in consecutive weeks,” said one voter. “What’s next, the Cowboys?”
Collin Klein's stock dropped drastically after his three interception performance that ended with a 52-24 loss at Baylor. The Kansas State QB went from first last week to currently third while losing 124 total points in the three polls listed below. Klein will probably still go to New York, but his chances of winning the Trophy have grown slim very fast.
There are a some new additions to the poll, but they will probably not be finalists. Northern Illinois QB Jordan Lynch received votes in both the USA Today and ESPN polls. Last week, I wrote about Lynch and the Heisman campaign that NIU has put out for him.
Listed in the combined poll results below are polls from HeismanPundit/CBSSports.com, ESPN, and USA Today combined together. There are 928 official voters for the Heisman Trophy.
