Would a Miller/Guiton Combination be a Heisman Front Runner?


This week, ESPN’s Big Ten Blog looked at how a Miller/Guiton combination would compare to the current crop of Heisman front runners. Heres the stats pulled from their post (does not include Mariota’s stats against Stanford):

 Miller and Guiton:

183-257, 2,065 yards, 29 TDs, 5 INTs

717 rushing yards, 7 TDs

Johnny Manziel:

200-276, 2,876 yards, 26 TDs, 8 INTs

564 rushing yards, 8 TDs

Jamesis Winston:

149-212, 2,502 yards, 24 TDs, 6 INTs

153 rushing yards, 3 TDs

Marcus Mariota

144-225, 2,281 yards, 20 TDs, 0 INTs

511 rushing yards, 9 TDs

Statistically, Miller and Guiton combined still have less yards throwing the football. However, they are responsible for far more TDs. Their 36 combined TDs are more than Manziel’s 34, Winston’s 30, and Mariota’s 29. They have over 150 more yards on the ground compared to the next closest (Manziel). Combine the fact that the Buckeyes are still undefeated and may have a title berth in their grasp, the Miller/Guiton combo would be right there at the top with Winston in the Heisman race.
