Robert Griffin III, Quarterback, Baylor University.

StiffArmTrophy.com unleashed a new update this morning with about 22% of total ballots accounted for and Robert Griffin III will become the first Heisman Trophy winner in the history of Baylor University. The first Big XII quarterback to win the award since Jason White won it in 2003.

An excerpt from the StiffArmTrophy report:

We're now up to 203 ballots (with 556 votes) - nearly 22% of the total vote - and it's time to make our final projection.

By now, this won't be a surprise to anyone: Baylor's Robert Griffin III is going to win the Heisman Trophy.

By our reckoning, he's going to get approximately 2000 points - 71% of a perfect unanimous #1 vote. (This year, 2781 points is perfect.)

That total would rank Griffin among the top 15 all-time biggest winners of the Heisman Trophy - roughly on par with Tim Tebow (70.5%) and Doug Flutie (71.1%).

Nothing is decided yet, obviously. We're about 56 hours away from knowing for sure whether StiffArmTrophy is correct, but their methodology is solid and they've been right basically every single time, so I trust them. I look forward to celebrating the best night in Baylor football history on Saturday night.

Rise up, Baylor Nation! The spotlight will be on us.
