Oregon running back LaMichael James, the school’s record-holder for career rushing yards, was not listed as a finalist for the Heisman Trophy this season. Despite missing playing time due to a nagging elbow injury, James is fourth in the nation in rushing yards (1646) and seventh in yards per carry (7.4).

Stanford’s Andrew Luck, Baylor’s Robert Griffin III, Alabama’s Trent Richardson, LSU’s Tyrann Mathieu and Montee Ball of Wisconsin are this year’s finalists for the Heisman Trophy.
