College football’s top players compete for the Heisman Trophy. Here are the contenders as well as a few sleepers.
Cody Kessler passed for 164 yards and a touchdown, and the Southern California defense stifled explosive Utah State on Saturday as the Trojans topped the Aggies 17-14.
By the time Southern California coach Lane Kiffin was done talking this week, the Trojans and their fans were certain Utah State is a BCS title contender and quarterback Chuckie Keeton is a Heisman Trophy front-runner.
Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd passed for 270 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for two more in a season-opening victory over Georgia, confirming Boyd as one of the top Heisman contenders this season.
