On September 2nd, we noted that analysts were already wondering whether University of Washington quarterback Jake Locker might be the first serious Heisman Trophy candidate to fall out of contention.
After Saturday’s loss to BYU, during which Locker didn’t exactly impress, it appears he may have already fallen out of serious Heisman Trophy contention.
In ESPN’s current Heisman Watch poll, Locker receives just one fourth place vote from a 15 member panel. That vote was good enough to put him in 13th place overall and make him the 10th best quarterback. In fact, another Northwest quarterback — Boise State’s Kellen Moore — leads the entire pack after an impressive win over Virginia Tech at FedEx Field.
Better luck next week?
