Heisman Trophy 2016: Top five candidates from the Big Ten

The Big Ten isn’t home to any of the 2016 Heisman Trophy favorites, but there are still a few players that could make a push for it at some point during the season as teams make a push for the College Football Playoff.

There is also a pair of running backs looking to make a name for themselves this year.

Let’s count down the top five Heisman Trophy candidates from the Big Ten.
