This Saturday the 2010 Heisman Trophy will be handed out at the Best Buy Theater in New York City. The group announced the four invitees for the annual dinner and Stanford QB Andrew Luck will be among the players present. In addition to Luck, the presentation will include favorite Auburn QB Cam Newton, Oregon RB LaMichael James, and Boise State QB Kellen Moore.
Although all the candidates had fantastic seasons, Cam Newton is generally considered the favorite for this award. In fact, the question has switched to the potential margin of victory and how big it might be. Some folks are keeping Newton off their ballot due to the off-the-field issues concerning his dad. Although Cam Newton was cleared of wrong-doing by the NCAA, that hasn’t stopped some voters from turning the ballot into their own personal soap box.
Given all this, Andrew Luck, LaMichael James, and Kellen Moore will be battling for second place. A week ago ESPN.com put together their latest ballot of 15 ESPN experts to see how the vote might finish. Newton continues to run away with the award, while Luck has a narrow lead for second over James and Moore.
