This one is coming down to the final few days. And Trent Richardson’s strong finish served him well in the Heisman Trophy race.
Two major polls leave the Alabama running back in the lead for the stiff-armed trophy. That career-high 203 yards at Auburn certainly helped.
Click here for the straw poll at HeismanPundit.com that has Richardson on top followed by Andrew Luck of Stanford and Robert Griffin III of Baylor. Only two points separate the top three in the survey of Heisman voters.
Then click here for the ESPN poll that includes a both voters and non-voters in the actual race. Richardson leads Luck with eight first-place votes to the Stanford QB’s five.
Neither of the two front runners play Saturday while Griffin III plays Texas. We’ll see if that plays a factor.
