The Final Big 12 Heisman Watch

We've reached the season's conclusion, and with it, the Big 12 has only one Heisman finalist among the five that will go to New York this week for Saturday's announcement.

1. Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

Last week: 15-22, 320 yards, 2 TD, INT. 12 carries, 32 yards, 2 TD in a 48-24 win over Texas.

Making the case for Griffin III: RG3 bounced back from concussion-like symptoms against Texas Tech last week to lead the Bears to a win over Texas for a second consecutive season. With his big performance, despite rainy conditions, he overtook Russell Wilson of Wisconsin for the national lead and a new NCAA record for passing efficiency. More importantly, he helped Baylor win its ninth game and fifth Big 12 game, the most in school history. He's the likely frontrunner, but you never know for sure with the Heisman.

Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden and Kansas State's Collin Klein put together great seasons. Landry Jones had a nice one, too, even with the awful ending. None of them earned a trip to New York City, though.

Here's how I voted in this week's ESPN Heisman Watch:

1. Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

2. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

3. Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

4. Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin

5. Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State
