Marqise Lee is enjoying a spectacular finishing run to his 2012 college football campaign. Will it be enough to win the Heisman?

The USC Trojans wide receiver is currently very much in the race to at least earn a trip to New York City, and could be a dark horse candidate to eventually win the 2012 Heisman Trophy. Chris Huston of CBSSports and Heisman Pundit currently has Marqise Lee ranked second overall in the Heisman straw poll, trailing only Collin Klein of the Kansas St. Wildcats.

The USC Trojans wide receiver has been doing spectacular things either running, receiving, or returning the football. Lee has piled up over 1,100 all-purpose yards in the last THREE games.

Lee had 469 all-purpose yards against Arizona (345 receiving yards, 123 kick return yards), 408 all-purpose yards against Oregon (157 receiving yards, 251 kick return yards), and 227 all-purpose yards against Arizona State (66 rushing yards, 161 receiving yards).
