Joe Christensen's college football short takes

  • Updated: November 28, 2013 - 9:29 PM

• Boston College running back Andre Williams deserves serious Heisman consideration as the 16th player in FBS history to pass the 2,000-yard rushing mark. The 6-foot, 230-pound senior averaged just 521 yards per season his first three years of college, but people took notice when he rushed for 339 yards against North Carolina State. He has topped the 200-yard mark five times this year and rushed for 149 against Florida State.

• Don’t assume Ohio State would make the BCS Championship by finishing undefeated if one of the teams above it in the BCS standings — Alabama or Florida State — loses. What if Auburn upsets Alabama on Saturday and then wins the SEC title game? Or what if Missouri wins the SEC title game? A one-loss SEC champ would have a strong case to be picked ahead of Ohio State because of the Buckeyes’ weak nonconference schedule.

• Gophers coach Jerry Kill and his staff can’t help but smile whenever Jordan Lynch reaches another milestone. They recruited Lynch at Northern Illinois and molded him as a backup to Chandler Harnish in 2010. “You didn’t have to say anything to Jordan; he’s like an Energizer bunny,” Gophers quarterbacks coach Jim Zebrowski said. On Tuesday, Lynch rushed for 321 yards against Western Michigan, an FBS record for a quarterback. For the season, Lynch has 2,457 yards passing and 1,755 yards rushing.
