ESPN: Barkley won't join Luck at Heisman ceremony

Joining Luck in New York for the ceremony on Saturday will be LSU cornerback Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu, Alabama running back Trent Richardson, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III and Wisconsin running back Montee Ball.

Barkley threw 10 touchdown passes in the Trojans' final two games, wins over Oregon and UCLA, and set a new school and conference record with 39 TD passes.
