A full analysis of what the first Saturday of college football meant to the Heisman race will come later on Sunday.
In the meantime, here's a quick look at what our top preseason candidates did on opening weekend (keeping in mind that Logan Thomas will be playing on Monday and that, as of this writing late Saturday night, Landry Jones was still in action against UTEP):
Denard Robinson, Michigan -- He went 11 for 26 passing for 200 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions (one returned for a touchdown) in a 41-14 loss to Alabama. He also added 27 yards and a score on 10 carries.
EJ Manuel, Florida State -- Manuel was 16 of 22 for 188 yards with one touchdown and one interception and added 38 yards rushing in a 69-3 win over Murray State.
