Heisman Race: Can Russell Wilson top the list with a big game against Sparty?

The race for the Heisman Trophy Award is about to get really interesting in the next few weeks of college football. Andrew Luck started the season as the favorite to win the trophy, and he is still leading in ESPN's Heisman poll conducted weekly by actual Heisman voters. However, his lead has steadily slipped the entire season, and currently Russell Wilson is on his heels. 

Wilson lit up the eyes of Heisman voters with his performance in Wisconsin's season opener versus UNLV. He completed 10 of 13 passes for 250 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions, and ran for 62 yards on two carries, including a 46 yard touchdown. Since then, he has completed 95 of 128 pass attempts (74.2 CMP%) for 1,5557 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 1 interception. His QB rating is 210.9, which is first in the nation. He has also run the ball 24 times for 182 yards and 2 touchdowns. 
The knock against Wilson is he hasn't played against a top defense yet, but that ends this weekend when the Badgers face off against the Michigan State Spartans. The Spartans defense are ranked and giving up the following this season:
Total Defense: ranked 2 - 186.17 
Rushing Defense: ranked 3 - 67.00 
Pass Efficiency Defense: ranked 1 - 84.35
Pass Defense: ranked 1 - 119.17
Scoring Defense: ranked 4 - 10.83 
Sacks: 8 - 3.50
Tackles for Loss: 18 - 7.67
