Stanford has a run-heavy offense and he should get plenty of opportunity to excel. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is on the short-list of contenders. He has very little experience but played well on the grandest stage at the end of last year, rallying the Crimson Tide to the national championship.
He still has to beat out Jalen Hurts for the starting job at Alabama but that seems very likely to happen. Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor is in a similar mold as Love in a run-heavy offense.
He carried the ball times for 1, yards and 13 touchdowns as a freshman and seems primed to put up big numbers once again.
If the Badgers can consistently get ahead of teams in the second half they figure to feed Taylor a lot to wrap up wins. He threw for 3, yards with 44 touchdowns and 13 interceptions a season ago and will look to take another step forward.
If he puts up big yardage and touchdown numbers while keeping the interceptions low, it could get him in the conversation. Team records also tend to play a role, so the Tigers will aim to have a good year around him. There will be a new face securing the title of best player in college football but it is tough to know which burgeoning star it will be. The field is wide open this season.
He is a pretty safe pick to be in the running because Love will get guaranteed touches as long as he remains healthy. However, quarterbacks have come out on top commonly in recent years and it would not be a surprise for a signal-caller to put up big numbers and come away with the trophy. The tough part is figuring out which quarterback will excel and claim the Heisman. As of this writing, this has the largest line move on the board as Louisville opened at He wasn't much of a passer with yards through the air but was the team's leading rusher with yards on 35 carries.
He has seen action in each of the past three seasons because Kent State has been so injury-ravaged at the position and has a total of 1, yards passing, four touchdowns and nine interceptions. KSU, incidentally, opened the season with a loss at Clemson and managed total yards while allowing NC State at No. This line opened at It seems like forever ago that the Seminoles lost star quarterback and Heisman Trophy candidate Deondre Francois to a season-ending knee injury back on Sept.
He'll be the first true freshman to start at quarterback for the Seminoles since Do not rule out an upset here. Ends Bradley Chubb and Kentavius Street combined for Hill are great against the run. All four will be drafted next spring, with Chubb for sure in the first round barring injury. The fact NC State has been able to play the past two weeks -- after losing Week 1 to South Carolina -- is a huge benefit.
FSU has won the past four in the series. LSU is also on letdown alert after its national title and likely SEC title hopes were wrecked in last week's blowout loss to Mississippi State. The junior had back-to-back strong games to open the season but was held to 76 yards on 15 carries vs.
MSU and might not play here. Late in the third quarter against the Bulldogs, Guice sustained an injury to his left knee. He hasn't practiced this week.
SU coach Dino Babers had this good quote about Guice's status: This is Syracuse's first-ever trip to LSU, which has won 48 straight home games against non-conference opponents. The cupboard was left very empty for new head coach Matt Rhule. On the bright side, three projected starters are due back here in running back Terence Williams, safety Taion Sells and cornerback Grayland Arnold. Neither Williams nor Arnold have played in because of injury, while Sells was on a three-game suspension.
Last year, Williams ranked fourth in the Big 12 in averaging 5. He finished with 1, yards and 11 scores on carries. Baylor is since against opponents ranked in the Associated Press Top 10, but those were very different Bears teams.
Mayfield is hitting on OU has a national-best game winning streak as well as 12 in a row on the road. It has won 16 consecutive Big 12 games, one shy of the school record. No credit card is needed, and you will never have to deal with a salesman.
