LOS ANGELES - The Heisman Trophy that seemed to be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck's to lose may be lost Saturday night to a Baylor quarterback. Momentum in recent days has shifted swiftly and favorably toward Robert Griffin III. Heismanpundit.com, a site run by former Southern California assistant sports information director Chris Huston that tracks college football's most coveted award, has predicted a victory for Griffin. In a final survey of 13 Heisman voters, Griffin received eight first-place votes to four for Luck.

ATLANTIC CITY - They sat on opposite ends of the stage, the divide symbolic of the awkwardness of the situation. But Andrew Luck and Archie Manning - here to accept awards from the Maxwell Football Club - insisted Friday that neither was uncomfortable even though the Stanford quarterback is widely expected to replace Manning's son in Indianapolis. Now, if Peyton Manning were here instead of his father . . . "I don't know if it's awkward to begin with," said Luck, winner of the 75th Maxwell Award as the collegiate player of the year.

MOBILE, Ala. - Carson Wentz grew nine inches and gained 75 pounds over the course of high school. He went from redshirt freshman to two-time national champion quarterback at North Dakota State. And he vaulted from Division I-AA curiosity to the marquee attraction at the Senior Bowl. There was little reason to believe Wentz couldn't compete against some of the best Division I-A seniors in the country. And it's almost unanimous, after a standout week, that he will be a first-round draft pick in April and be able to make the jump to NFL starter.

STANFORD'S first win of the season against a ranked team helped Andrew Luck and the Cardinal move up in the BCS standings. While LSU (8-0), Alabama (8-0) and Oklahoma State (8-0) remained locked into the top three spots in the standings released last night, Stanford moved up two places to fourth after beating Southern California, 56-48, in triple overtime. Boise State (7-0) slipped a spot to fifth, while Clemson (7-1) fell from fifth to 11th after its first loss. LSU and Alabama will play Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala., for first place and the inside track to the BCS national championship game.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 6 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Sam Bradford, QB, Eagles vs. Giants. Bradford seems to be getting into a rhythm with Philly's up-tempo offense, passing for 603 yards and 5 TDs over the last two weeks. Next up: The NFL's most generous secondary. Arian Foster, RB, Texans at Jaguars. He's gotten past his groin injury and reclaimed the workhorse role in Houston's backfield. Meanwhile, Alfred Blue is dealing with a turf toe. Antonio Andrews, RB, Titans vs. Dolphins.

OK, SO NICK Foles starting on Sunday isn't official yet, but if he's not out there, Michael Vick won't be the only one having his head examined this week. Anybody who watched Vick take hit after hit behind an offensive line that looked like five wheels of Swiss cheese knew it was only a matter of time before Foles started. Since 1970, the Eagles have drafted 17 quarterbacks. Four, if you include Foles, have started a game as rookies. Donovan McNabb, Randall Cunningham and John Reaves are the others.

After a bit of an exile, a former Eagles quarterack has finally hooked on with an NFL team. No, not Donovan McNabb . On Wednesday, the Houston Texans signed Jeff Garcia , 41, whose last address was care of the UFL's Omaha Nighthawks, to be their No. 3 behind rookie T.J. Yates - default starter with Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart out - and 36-year-old Jake Delhomme . Houston signed Delhomme last week...

NAVY QUARTERBACK Keenan Reynolds is leading the ESPN/Nissan online Heisman fan voting by a large margin. And he's not even on the ballot. Well, he is. But he isn't. An explanation: Reynolds has received 37 percent of all votes, putting him far ahead of Alabama running back Derrick Henry, who has 23 percent. Yet, Reynolds is no longer among the seven players with links that allow fans to vote for them. This, of course, doesn't sit well with the Naval Academy, which tweeted at @NavyAthletics: "Why was Keenan Reynolds taken off the ESPN Heisman House Voting?

EAGLES FANS all have opinions on who should be the starting quarterback next season. There's the "anybody but Sam Bradford and Mark Sanchez" camp. Others are praying for Tim Tebow. Still others are hoping the 49ers' Colin Kaepernick ends up in midnight green. No one has mentioned Matt Hasselbeck. OK, so he's not the answer. But, he's doing some pretty impressive things in Indianapolis. On Sunday, the 40-year-old, 17-year veteran, threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Colts to a 25-12 win the Bucs.

AT THIS POINT last season, DeMarco Murray was consistently being mentioned in the same sentence as Hall of Famer Jim Brown. This year, he's more likely to be in the same conversation as Charlie Brown. Murray dominated for the Cowboys in 2014 when he led the NFL in rushing on the strength of an incredible start that saw him break Brown's record of 100-yard games to begin a season. Brown had 100 yards in the first six games in 1958. Murray started last season with eight. It was like Daniel Murphy hitting home runs for the Mets early in the postseason.

Just another game, they're saying up in Foxborough, Mass. Sure, Tom Brady, we believe you. "I really don't see it any different than each of the other games we've played," Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels parroted during the practice week leading up to New England's Sunday night showdown with the Colts in Indianapolis. This, of course, is not just another game. This is the most anticipated rematch of the 2015 NFL season. Complaints lodged by the Colts in the first half of New England's AFC championship rout in Gillette Stadium last season triggered a long-running soap opera about air pressure in footballs that started before the Super Bowl and lasted the entire offseason.

JETS (-2) over Eagles Is it the water? Are the Birds just the Sixers with a few more guys on the roster? A roster that seems to shrink every time I finish another sentence. RB DeMarco Murray now listed as questionable . . . Kiko Alonso and Cedric Thornton are out. Mychal Kendricks in trouble. Chip Kelly delusional! Still cannot believe Murray gobbled up only 7 yards against the Cowboys last week. Seven yards! Where are you, Evan Mathis ? Please come home, Todd Herremans . And if the Chipper thought Sam Bradford was the answer to his prayers, uh-oh.

Sam Bradford, Eagles: He's an interesting mid-round pick for someone who has one of the top-three QBs. If he flourishes, Bradford could be trade bait. Tom Brady, Patriots: Whoever makes the stupidest testicle joke at the draft has to buy the pizza. Brady will sit the first four games for deflating footballs. For now. Drew Brees, Saints: His yardage and touchdowns have declined each of the last four seasons, but that's only because he was playing at such a ridiculous level.

INDIANAPOLIS - On these endless frigid days and nights, the remote possibility of Marcus Mariota again chucking footballs for his old college coach Chip Kelly is the only thing that is getting many Eagles fans through the winter. Well, that and Mr. Yuengling. I'd love to have some good news to report to them on that subject from the NFL Scouting Combine. But alas, a Marcus & Chip Reunion Tour continues to appear to be nothing more than a pipe dream. Please stop emailing me trade suggestions that you somehow think would entice the Tennessee Titans to part with the second pick in the draft so that Kelly can swoop down and gobble up The Son He Never Had. Trust me, packaging their first- and second-round picks this year and their first-round pick next year along with Nick Foles, Matt Barkley, Casey Matthews, Marcus Smith, Cary Williams and Howie Roseman will not get it done.

The news that the NFL is investigating the New England Patriots organization concerning whether some footballs were intentionally deflated during the AFC championship game on Sunday is interesting, but only in a what-will-Belichick-think-of-next kind of way. It's easy to believe, given their history, that the Pats would be eager to gain any edge possible, but exactly why having a softer football, one that is easier to grip and catch in pouring rain,...
