After Johnny Manziel's 562-yard performance against Alabama's defense, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner jumped right back into the conversation for the race in 2013. Could Manziel become the first two-time Heisman Trophy winner since Archie Griffin?

Chris Huston, of HeismanPundit.com and NBC Sports, says the answer is no. In fact, Manziel was absent from Huston's Heisman Watch on HeismanPundit.com.

Citing recent examples of Heisman Trophy winners that have come back to school, Huston points out that there are too many factors to sway the voters away from awarding Manziel the trophy again. In the Eye On College Football Podcast, we discuss a much more likely Heisman candidate: Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron.

Tune in below as we run through the Mighty M's (McCarron, Manziel, Marcus Mariota, Braxton Miller) and B's (Teddy Bridgewater, Tajh Boyd) that make up the Heisman Trophy frontrunners. What kind of statistical benchmarks or team success is necessary to jump ahead of the group in the eyes of the Heisman electorate.
