Heading into the 2014 college football season, Braxton Miller, then Ohio State's starting quarterback, was seen as a Heisman Trophy favorite. Miller, a two-time Big Ten MVP, was expected to have a massive senior campaign. Of course, he got hurt, injuring his shoulder and missing the entire season. 

Now he's back, this time as a wide receiver/H-back in Urban Meyer's vaunted offense. 

Miller made his debut at the position Monday night and, boy, it was a good one. He totaled 140 yards and two touchdowns in Ohio State's 42-24 victory and made some ridiculous plays. 

The Heisman Trophy hype has started again.

It's (very) early, but Miller should certainly be close to the top of the Heisman Trophy watch list.
