Case Keenum struck the first blow on what is shaping up to be a momentous Heisman weekend.
The Houston quarterback threw for 457 yards and 5 touchdowns (with no picks) as the Cougars moved to 12-0 on the season with a 48-16 win over Tulsa.
Keenum now has 4,726 yards, 43 TD passes and just three interceptions on the season. His numbers are truly astounding. Now, it is up to voters to figure out exactly what they mean.
Can he get to New York at this point?
I think his chances are improving, but it may depend on what Trent Richardson does against Auburn on Saturday.
