6) C.J. Prosise, RB, Notre Dame
Prosise recovered from his disappointing showing against Clemson last weekend with an impressive 185 total yard, three touchdown performance against Navy.
5) Jordan Canzeri, RB, Iowa
Canzeri had a field day in the Hawkeyes 29-20 victory over Illinois, rushing the ball an astounding 43 times for 256 yards and a touchdown. He accounted for over half of Iowa's offense and is the biggest reason why they're 6-0 this year.
4) Derrius Guice, RB, LSU
Turns out, LSU's rushing attack is more than just a one-man show. Guice showed he's a force to be reckoned with as Fournette's backup, picking up 161 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries.
3) Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
Fournette did it again against South Carolina, running for 158 yards and one touchdown. The Heisman front-runner now has over 1,000 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns in just five games this season.
2) Josh Dobbs, QB, Tennessee
Dobbs was the star of Tennessee's comeback upset victory over Georgia this afternoon, passing for 312 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 118 yards and two more scoreson the ground.
1) Michigan's defense
The Wolverines' defense is otherworldly right now. Michigan has shut out three straight opponents and has won their last five games by an absolutely daffy 150-14 combined score. They're the first team to record three straight blankings since the 1995 Kansas State Wildcats. In the span of just over a month, UM's defense has gone from really good to insanely great by clamping down in the secondary and forcing opposing QBs to settle for short, underneath routes for minimal gains. Combined with a front seven that has been sealing the edges and pounding opposing O-lines in the trenches, and you've got a recipe for a team on the cusp of something huge.Back to the NCAA Newsfeed
