SEC Heisman watch: Week 13

We're less than two weeks away from Heisman Trophy ballots being turned in. Here's the way it looks in the SEC:

1. Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama: At this point, Richardson is the only realistic candidate in the SEC, and he's right in the middle of the race. A lot of people will be tuned in Saturday for Alabama's Iron Bowl matchup with Auburn, which provides Richardson with another big national stage. For the season, he has 1,380 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns. He also leads the SEC in all-purpose yardage with an average of 160.7 yards per game. A big game Saturday against the Tigers could be the difference for Richardson.

2. Jarius Wright, WR, Arkansas: He's emerged as the Hogs' top receiver and has a chance for 1,200 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Wright is the only player in the SEC averaging more than 100 receiving yards per game, and he leads the league with 10 touchdown receptions.

3. Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia: After throwing nine touchdown passes in his previous two games, Murray slowed down last week in the 19-10 victory over Kentucky. He still leads the SEC with 28 touchdown passes and also leads the league in pass efficiency.
