• Griffin in thick of Heisman race entering season’s final week

    Baylor Line "RG3 for Heisman" signDespite missing the second half of last week’s win over Texas Tech with a concussion, Robert Griffin III is still very much in the race for the Heisman. Here’s a quick survey of what college football experts around the nation are saying:

    Griffin has already won a host of national honors this year, but you can play a part in helping him win two more. Both the Heisman and the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award incorporate fan voting into their final results; click here to vote for the Heisman, and click here to vote for the O’Brien Award. (You can vote for each once per day.)

    Given Griffin’s success this year, there’s a very real chance he could enter the NFL draft next spring. That would make this Saturday his final game at Floyd Casey Stadium, as it will be for Baylor’s senior class that includes WR Kendall Wright, RB Terrance Ganaway, C Philip Blake, LB Elliot Coffey, OL Robert T. Griffin, NT Nicolas Jean-Baptiste, PK Ben Parks, DT Tracy Robertson and others.

    With such players to send off, plus a ranked Baylor team gunning for its ninth win of the year against a longtime rival, there’s no reason Floyd Casey shouldn’t be sold out Saturday vs. No. 22 Texas (2:30 p.m., ABC/ESPN). Get your tickets now (only a few hundred remain) to show RG3 and this senior class your support!

    Sic ’em, Bears!
