Heisman Trophy watch

The front-runner

Leonard Fournette, RB LSU: Rushed 26 times for 244 yards and two TDs vs. Syracuse. In only three games, has 631 yards and eight TDs.

In the hunt

Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia: Rushed 15 times for 131 yards and two TDs vs. Southern. Has 599 yards and six TDs this season.

Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU: Played later Saturday vs. Texas. Has passed for 1,025 yards and 10 TDs this season.

Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State: Rushed 16 times for 124 yards and one TD vs. Western Michigan. Has 455 yards and five TDs this season.

Derrick Henry, Alabama: Rushed 13 times for 52 yards and one TD vs. Louisiana-Monroe. Has 422 yards and eight TDs this season.

This week's best bets

No. 6 Notre Dame at No. 11 Clemson: The Fighting Irish are 2-0 against ACC opponents, and they have four more to go. This trip to Death Valley likely will be the toughest.

No. 12 Alabama at No. 7 Georgia: Mark Richt and his 'Dawgs can strike a blow for the SEC East if they can beat the Crimson Tide. And with Nick Chubb and Greyson Lambert, they just might have the RB-QB combo to do so.

No. 16 Arizona at No. 21 Stanford: Let's hope this game includes the fireworks of the last Wildcats-Cardinal meeting, a 54-48 Stanford victory in 2012.

Texas at No. 3 TCU: The Horned Frogs drilled the Longhorns 48-10 last year in Austin. Some day, Charlie Strong will have a team good enough to exact their revenge. But not this day.
