Braxton Miller Ranks No. 4 In SB Nation's Heisman Race

Bill Connelly is trying a new kind of Heisman Race this year in which college football's most dominant players will collect points for their performance each week.

In the Week 1 Race, Ohio State's Braxton Miller finished in fourth place, which earns him seven points. He finished behind Geno Smith, Le'Veon Bell, and Marqise Lee.

Said Connelly, of Miller's Week 1 performance:

"Yes, the passing still needs work. Miller completed just 14 of 24 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns (for one of the two, the receiver did most of the work) and, including two sacks, averaged a healthy-but-not-Heisman 7.3 yards per pass attempt. But oh, those legs. You only have to be proficient, and not spectacular, through the air when you can rip off 177 rushing yards in 15 carries and add an absolutely gorgeous 65-yard touchdown run. He could be quite the muse for Urban Meyer."
