Big 12 Heisman Watch: Week 10

Here are the Big 12's best hopes to bring home the Heisman Trophy. The field is thinning considerably.

1. Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State: Klein's the only guy in the Big 12 with a real chance to win it, but late runs by the guys below him might land them in New York for the trophy presentation. Klein's mysterious injury could complicate this race, but if Klein's production stays even close to what it's been and K-State wins out, the trophy is his.

2. Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech: Texas' secondary played a heck of a game, but Doege completed 26 of 44 passes for 329 yards and a touchdown, without an interception. Doege missed his chance to really get in the race versus K-State last week, but he's the nation's leader in touchdown passes.

3. Tavon Austin, WR/KR/PR, West Virginia: WVU's offense has slowed, but Austin hasn't at all. He was at his best on Saturday, taking a short catch 43 yards for a score and returning a punt 76 yards for a score. He finished with 11 catches for 101 yards and returned a kick 34 yards, too.

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

  1. Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State

  2. Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon

  3. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State

  4. Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

  5. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
