Is This Week Jake Locker's 'Last Chance' To Prove He Is A Heisman Candidate?

Earlier we noted that Jake Locker got back on track last weekend against Syracuse but that he hadn’t received much recognition from the Heisman Trophy watch lists.

The Seattle Times writes that Saturday’s big game between the University of Washington and the University of Nebraska could be Locker’s “last chance” for serious Heisman consideration.

Nebraska not only represents a chance for UW to make a statement, but also for Locker to get back into the Heisman race — and maybe his last chance. Locker’s Heisman hopes dimmed considerably after the BYU loss. Nebraska is the last nonconference game of the season for the Huskies, and as such, the last time the eyes of the college football nation beyond the West are guaranteed to be on UW.
