I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that Oregon will not produce a second straight Heisman winner. Yeesh. But here are five guys that could actually take it.
1. Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU. Another week, another man-among-boys performance by LSU's super sophomore, who gashed Syracuse for 244 yards (a new career high) and two touchdowns on 26 carries. He could hold this spot for quite some time.
2. Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU. The preseason favorite played like it against Texas Tech, throwing for 509 yards and four touchdowns despite missing two of his top three receivers. The Horned Frogs needed every bit of that in a 55-52 shootout.
3. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia. Technically last year doesn't count, but the sophomore notched his 12th straight 100-yard game Saturday against Southern, gaining 131 yards and two TDs on 15 carries and catching a 24-yard TD as well.
4. Paul Perkins, RB, UCLA. A modest 85-yard rushing day still included three touchdowns in the Bruins' impressive 56-30 win at No. 16 Arizona. QB Josh Rosen will likely continue to be all over the map, but Perkins is a rock for UCLA's offense.
5. Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M. The nation's most disruptive defensive player singlehandedly turned the Arkansas game. He sacked Razorbacks QB Brandon Allen and forced a fumble to snuff out a potential game-winning drive. A&M went on to win in overtime.
Just missed: Notre Dame RB C.J. Prosise
