After Oregon Loss, Who Has Inside Track on Heisman: Manziel or Winston?

No. 5 Stanford upset No. 3 Oregon, 26-20, on Thursday night. Marcus Mariota didn't have the electric, showcase performance (20-of-34 for 250 yards and two TDs, minus-16 yards rushing) for the Ducks, likely causing him to take a plunge in the Heisman Trophy race.

Mariota's performance has subsequently opened the door for Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel and Florida State QB Jameis Winston to make a run at the most prestigious award in college football.

With Mariota's struggles, which quarterback is now in the lead? CFB analyst Barrett Sallee breaks down who is now the front-runner to win the Heisman.
