Manziel Vaults to Heisman Front Runner Amid BCS Chaos

Mike Cardano Senior Fantasy Analyst November 18, 2012 12:53AM EDT

Now that's a bad day... Collin Klein lost both a chance at a national championship and a Heisman Trophy yesterday...

No. 1 Kansas State and No. 2 Oregon both went down in flames on Saturday night. K-State was blown out by Baylor 52-24 on the road and Oregon lost in overtime 17-14 to Stanford at home. The last time that the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the country both lost on the same day was December 1, 2007 when No. 1 Missouri and No. 2 West Virginia both went down. You have now to believe that Notre Dame is going to move up to No. 1 and Alabama will move to No. 2.

The funny thing is that Ohio State Ohio State (11-0, 7-0 Big Ten) who is ineligible for the postseason as part of its punishment for NCAA violations under former coach Jim Tressel, won their game against Wisconsin in overtime 21-14. The Buckeyes are  now the only other unbeaten team left besides Notre Dame. The best the Buckeyes can hope for however is to finish the regular-season unbeaten and via for the Associated Press title.

Kansas State QB, Collin Klein was the biggest loser on the day as he not only lost a chance at a national championship, but his chances of a Heisman Trophy went up in smoke as well. Yesterday I laid out the case for a Johnny Manziel Heisman Trophy, but today no case has to be made. The freshman sensation is the clear front runner and the prestigious award is Johnny Football’s to lose.

Random Musings

I can’t see Notre Dame winning a national championship this season. They squeaked by Purdue at home 20-17 and it took overtime at home to beat Stanford 20-13. (I still say Stanford scored btw.) The Irish barely got past BYU at home 17-14 and it took another three overtimes at home to get past Pitt 29-26. (If you or I were kicking for Pitt they would have won btw; just saying.) The luck of the Irish is bound to run out. If they do make the BCS National Championship Game they’ll likely be playing Alabama, Georgia or Florida. Manti Teo can Hula Dance around the field all he wants, Notre Dame can’t /won’t beat any of those three SEC teams. If they played all three they would go 0-3…
