*The frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy in 2015 is unquestionably L.S.U. running back Leonard Fournette. The man averages 193.1 yards per game and has scored 15 rushing touchdowns. The former stat leads the nation; the latter is second.
*Two quarterbacks have the best chance to overtake Fournette. T.C.U. ‘s Trevone Boykin will play in three high-profile games this month, starting today at Oklahoma State. Clemson’s Deshaun Watson will need an impressive outing today against Florida State because the Tigers have no other marquee games on their remaining schedule.
*Running backs Christian McCaffrey of Stanford and Ezekiel Elliott of Ohio State are, at this point, dark horses for the award. McCaffrey averages 244 all-purpose yards per game to lead the nation by a wide margin, while Elliott has rung up 13 consecutive games with 100+ rushing yards – the nation’s longest such streak.
