Matt Barkley has slipped back into the pack and Montee Ball has fallen off the board completely. Landry Jones? You can probably take him off the list, too. Same with Tyler Wilson.

All the preseason hype is pretty much out the window. The Heisman Trophy race starts now and it's about results, not hype.

Barkley could still climb back into the race, he's got the talent and the platform (games against Oregon and Notre Dame) to do so. Here are six players he'll be competing with from here on out (in no particular order).
