Only Duke can keep Heisman from Winston

By By RALPH D. RUSSO

NEW YORK (AP) — The only thing standing in the way of Jameis Winston and the Heisman Trophy is the Duke Blue Devils.

The quarterback of No. 1 Florida State will not be charged with sexually assaulting a woman who accused him of raping her about a year ago. State Attorney Willie Meggs made the announcement Thursday, saying there was not enough evidence to win a conviction.

Even while Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, odds makers had pegged him as the clear favorite.

Now only a terrible performance in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship Saturday night against No. 20 Duke will keep him from a runaway Heisman victory.

Chris Huston who runs the website HeismanPundit.com says: "He'll win very comfortably."
