NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Nobody wins the Heisman in October, but one guy continues to stand far and away at the top of the pack.

1. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU: The nation's rushing leader figured to enjoy another huge game against overmatched Eastern Michigan, and indeed, he topped his own 213-yard season average with 233 yards on 26 carries, his third straight 200-yard game.

2. Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU: Texas' woeful defense stood no chance against TCU's masterful signal-caller, who completed 20-of-35 throws for 332 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in a 50-7 Horned Frogs rout.

3. Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M: The sophomore continues to display his dominance for the Aggies, posting a sack, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a pass batted down in holding Dak Prescott-led Mississippi State to 17 points.

4. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia: Chubb took it on the chin for most of the Dawgs' humbling 38-10 loss to Alabama but did break off an 83-yard touchdown run late in the game. That gave him 146 yards on 20 carries, his school-record 13th straight 100-yard game.

5. Greg Ward Jr., QB, Houston: Cougar coach Tom Herman is developing yet another stud dual-threat quarterback. Ward racked up 273 passing yards, 182 rushing yards and three touchdowns against Tulsa. Houston improved to 4-0.
