The Heisman spotlight is finally finding Brandon Weeden.
For now, it’s not the glowing center of the spotlight, but clearly Weeden has moved from the shadowy outer edges into the circle of light.
In the latest Scripps Heisman Poll, which involves a sampling of votes from the different geographical areas of the country, Weeden ranks No. 4, his highest position yet. In ESPN’s Expert’s Poll, Weeden is No. 5, also a high-water mark for the senior from Edmond.
The surge comes on the heels of his school-record, 502-yard, four touchdown performance in OSU’s wild 52-45 win over Kansas State. He completed 78 percent of his throws against the Wildcats and is at 72.1 percent for the season.
“These are heady times in Stillwater, and Weeden is the main reason. He’s completing 72 percent of his passes and is averaging 31 completions per game for the nation’s second-highest-scoring offense. Better yet, he has the Cowboys at No. 2 in the BCS standings and in control of their own destiny in the national championship race.”
