Heisman Trophy Candidates Entering Week 13

The 2015 college football regular season is almost in the books, yet the Heisman race is still wide open. No one really stepped up to the plate in Week 12 when it came to putting up major stats. Well, that isn't necessarily true, as Dak Prescott went ham once again.

Here's one thing we can all count on: This is going to be a big week in college football.

Luke Falk had 199 passing yards and one TD in a win against Colorado. However, he also went down to an injury — which is why those stats were so pedestrian for the Washington State Cougar.

Another game and yet another 100-yard rushing performance for the Seminole.

Florida is next for Florida State. If cook goes off in that rivalry clash, his Heisman stock will skyrocket.

8. Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor

Baylor knocked off Oklahoma State in Week 12. That's really all that matters in the grand scheme of things, but Corey Coleman unfortunately didn't have one of his monster performances in the huge victory.

LSU, once again, lost in Week 12. The Tigers have now lost three games in a row, and that certainly doesn't help Leonard Fournette's cause when it comes to winning the Heisman.

That said, he did have 108 rushing yards and 72 receiving yards. That counts for something, right?

6. Dak Prescott, QB, Mississippi State

The Mississippi State Bulldogs might not be in contention for the College Football Playoff, but Dak Prescott is certainly having himself a year.

This past week, the QB had over 500 passing yards and he led his team to victory over the red-hot Arkansas Razorbacks.

5. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

Ohio State had a terrible week, and it could have costed it a spot in the Big 10 championship and playoff.

Ezekiel Elliott only had 33 rushing yards against Michigan State. That's just not going to get the Heisman job done.

4. Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

When Baker Mayfield went down to an injury, we all saw just how valuable he is to his team. If Mayfield is good to go against Oklahoma State, he could end up winning the trophy in Week 13. Of course, he has to play well and the Sooners also likely have to win.

3. Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

Just like so many other Heisman contenders, Christian McCaffrey can pull away from the pack with a big performance this weekend.

But first, check out his stats from this past weekend: 192 rushing yards, 49 receiving yards, one receiving TD, one 98-yard kick return TD.

2. Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

Deshaun Watson is a quarterback, and the voters tend to like quarterbacks. If the Tigers can continue to win, Watson's chances will go up automatically based off of that factor alone.

1. Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama

Derrick Henry only needed nine carriers to rack up 68 rushing yards and two TDs. He is Alabama's workhorse, and he is on the verge of clinching this award.

After all, if Henry doesn't show up, Alabama likely doesn't win.
