Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel has been largely ignored in the Heisman conversation this year.
The reasons for that are obvious: He won it last year. He rubs the college football traditionalists the wrong way. His team lost early and has thus been out of the national championship spotlight since September.
No one has won the Heisman in back-to-back years since Archie Griffin. But Manziel’s 2013 season has been exceptional.
During the Texas-West Virginia game on Saturday night, Fox put up a graphic of four Heisman frontrunners and their stats. They left off Manziel.
