CONNECTICUT (BASN) — Here are my top five contenders for this year’s Heisman Trophy after last weekend’s games.

1. QB Cam Newton, Auburn: The big leader right now. He’s the War Eagles’ star quarterback whose team is No. 1 in the BCS at 8-0.
2. RB LaMichael James, Oregon: The star offensive player on a team that can win the National Championship.
3. QB Andrew Luck, Stanford: The best passer in the country.
4. QB Kurt Cousins, Michigan State: The leader of the undefeated Spartans.
5. QB Landry Jones, Oklahoma: He dropped off a bit with a Missouri loss, but is still a star.
