Ohio State's Smith seems to be choice

From the Associated Press

Troy Smith figures to make this contest a rout too.

The Ohio State quarterback is such a heavy favorite to take the Heisman Trophy tonight that the competition could be one of the biggest landslides in the award's history.

Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn and Arkansas running back Darren McFadden are the other finalists for college football's most famous award. But it'll be a shocker if Smith doesn't become the sixth Ohio State player to win the Heisman.

While other top players were having their ups and downs, Smith was brilliantly efficient leading the Buckeyes (12-0) through an unbeaten regular season, during which they rarely were challenged. Ohio State won 10 games by at least 17 points.
