It might not be official, but Jameis Winston will be your Heisman winner. After not being charged with his off-the-field allegations, there is no reason now for voters to stay away. He has the overall numbers (3,820 yards passin, 38 TDs) and his team is ranked No. 1.

Lynch had a bad game in the MAC Championship, but its still hard to ignore the overall numbers on the season. He won't win the award, but earning a trip to New York is a great consolation for a guy with 2,676 yards passing and 1,881 yards rushing.

Look who charged into the Heisman race at the last moment. Nobody can argue he doesn't deserve it ... just look at the numbers. Mason not only has 1,621 yards rushing and 22 TDs, but he had some big games for Auburn. Last week he ran for 304 in the SEC title game, but also had 164 against Alabama, 132 against LSU and 178 against A&M. He deserves to be here.

Williams had his worst game of the season, rushing for just 29 yards on nine carries and ended up getting hurt in the second half. The 2,102 yards on the season will get him some votes for a fantastic season, but Williams has no shot to win the award.

It's tough to win back-to-back Heismans and Manziel proved that. He will come up short in the voting, but being a finalists again shows how good of a player he is. The interceptions hurt him and the fact that A&M lost four games. Still, he is one of the most exciting players in college football.
