This won't surprise you, but Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones has a horse in the Heisman Trophy race. Jones, who has helped lead the Buckeyes to an undefeated season in 2015, is officially endorsing his teammate, running back Ezekiel Elliott, for the award. Jones used a Nissan advertisement to make it known.

On the season, Zeke has rushed for 1,244 yards and 14 touchdowns. While he's certainly in the running, he's facing stiff competition from Leonard Fournette, Derrick Henry, Trevone Boykin and others. How he finishes down the stretch will go a long way in determining whether he'll actually win the award.
