Heisman Prediction by Away Game Ticket Prices
Heisman talks start even before the first game of the NCAA Football Season and players flow in and out of the conversation week to week. As the season winds down and there are only two weeks left until the 2010 Heisman Trophy is awarded on Saturday, December 11, there are five Heisman hopefuls who are still part of the conversation.
Top 5 Heisman Trophy Candidates
Cam Newton, QB, Auburn Tigers
Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford Cardinals
LaMichael James, RB, Oregon Ducks
Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State Broncos
Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State Cowboys
We took a look at the average price per ticket of the away games for each of the Heisman Trophy candidates to determine which of the candidates commanded the highest demand in the secondary ticket market throughout the season.
According to our method of using away game ticket prices to predict the Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton should run away with the coveted trophy. The runner up for the Heisman looks to be a much closer race with Andrew Luck of the Stanford Cardinals barely edging out the Oregon Ducks star running back LaMichael James. Kellen Moore and Justin Blackmon will be close behind taking the 4th and 5th spot. Interestingly enough, the ESPN Experts’ Poll shows very similar results, the only divergence being the Oklahoma State wide receiver, Justin Blackmon, is more clearly in 5th place according to the ESPN Experts’ Poll.
