XN Sports Heisman Watch: Marcus Mariota Is The Early Favorite

Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota

Georgia RB Todd Gurley – The last four Heisman winners and nine of the last 10 have been QB’s but Gurley could be the back to break that stranglehold. He ran for 208 yards and two TDs on 28 carries in a 35-32 victory over Tennessee last week and has 610 yards and six TDs on 69 carries this season. Gurley is averaging 8.8 yards per carry and his numbers include a six-carry day in Georgia’s 66-0 victory over Troy on Sept. 20.
