Scripps News: Marshawn Ranked 4th in Heisman Poll

This years' Heisman Trophy race is turning into a blowout. For the second consecutive week, Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith swept all 10 votes in the Scripps Howard poll to top the poll for the eighth consecutive week. Second and third place remained the same as well with West Virginia running back Steve Slaton and Notre Dame QB Brady Quinn, respectively.

Compiled by the Rocky Mountain News in Denver, the Scripps Heisman poll is the longest-running weekly Heisman poll in the country, in its 20th year. The final poll in December correctly has predicted the Heisman winner 16 of the previous 19 seasons. There are 10 voters, two from each of five regions of the country. The tabulations are on a 5-4-3-2-1 basis. First-place votes in parentheses.
