ESPN: Matt Barkley making most of short throws
In order to win a Heisman Trophy, candidates must find a way to separate themselves from the competition. One amazing performance can vault a player into the national spotlight, and one bad game can end a player’s Heisman aspirations.
In Week 2, there were several outstanding performances by potential Heisman Trophy candidates, led once again by USC’s senior quarterback.
Matt Barkley had 187 yards passing and threw a school-record six touchdown passes in USC’s 42-29 victory over Syracuse.
