The regular season is over for a lot of players who are up for the Heisman. The Heisman Trophy will be presented on December 10th so that makes this the next to last poll of the season for us. Andrew Luck has been the front-runner for much of the year as he has been #1 in 8 of 12 weeks. Robert Griffin III re-emerged last week at the top of the poll after seemingly having been banished from contention. Will RG3 stay on top this week coming down the final stretch? Will Andrew Luck reclaim his top spot as he rounds the final corner? Or will somebody else take the lead as the Heisman speculation is coming to an end?

It’s been so widely assumed that Andrew Luck will be the first overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft that a lot of people have forgotten that Luck still has another year of NCAA eligibility and could choose to return to Stanford next season. But Stanford coach David Shaw says he doesn’t see any way…
