Andrew Luck Heisman Trophy Watch 2011: Stanford QB Still Heavy Favorite Over Trent Richardson

Another week, another ho-hum lead for Andrew Luck in the ESPN 'Heisman Watch'. Luck had probably one of his most average and unremarkable performances as a college football quarterback, and there he was increasing his first place lead by another nine points.

Luck had a quiet and efficient 168 yards, two touchdown performance against the Washington Huskies in a 65-21 rout, but apparently Washington was so focused on shutting down Luck that they decided to give Stanford's running backs open running lanes ad infinitum. Or something like that. With a showdown coming up against Matt Barkley and the USC Trojans, he'll have an even better chance to cement his claim for the trophy.

Alabama tailback Trent Richardson is inching his way up the leaderboard, moving from third to second. He'll have a chance to make his statement for the award when Alabama plays LSU two weeks from now--a big performance is probably what he'll need to surpass Luck to nab the award.
