Video: USC campaigns for Marqise Lee to win Heisman Trophy

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The USC Trojans are making noise for receiver Marqise Lee to win the Heisman Trophy.

The USC Trojans released the video above on Wednesday in a marketing campaign promoting receiver Marqise Lee. The sophomore burst into the Heisman conversation this year, despite his name already being on the preseason radar of best wide receivers in the nation.

Lee is currently second in the nation with 1,286 receiving yards. That puts him behind Baylor's Terrance Williams and his 1,340 receiving yards. Lee also has 12 touchdowns, third in the nation among receivers and tight ends.

He leads the nation with 88 catches.

The Trojan receiver's best game came two weeks ago against the Arizona Wildcats. Lee racked up a Pac-12 record 345 yards on 16 catches, scoring on two touchdowns of 44 yards and 49 yards.

A victory by Lee in the Heisman race -- even being named a finalist -- would be historical. Only three wide receivers have won the award annually given out to the nation's best player.
