It’s the T-shirt that’s taking over Ann Arbor. The
front says, “Braylon Edwards for Heisman,” and the back
says, “It’s Not Impossible.” Usually only
quarterbacks and running backs are contenders in the Heisman race,
but Edwards could be an exception. He has 50 catches for 763 yards
and eight touchdowns this season, and the numbers don’t even
do him justice. When the Gophers tried to double him, the running
game opened up, and Jason Avant and the tight ends had their best
game of the year. Here’s some other candidates:

 

Kyle Orton, QB, Purdue, Sr.: 119-of-172, 1,642 yards, 18 TDs, 2
INTs … He’s the favorite right now, but needs to keep
winning

Matt Leinart, QB, Southern Cal., Jr.: 99-of-148, 1,187 yards, 10
TDs, 3 INTs … Too much competition from teammate Reggie Bush

Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma, Fr.: 119 carries, 771 yards, 6
TDs … He won’t win because he’s a freshman

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Cal, Jr.: 72-of-92, 881 yards, 7 TDs, 2 INTs
… Despite losing to Southern Cal., he showed the country
he’s for real

Vernand Morency, RB, Oklahoma State, Jr.: 131 carries, 869
yards, 8 TDs … Let’s see what he does against Oklahoma
