Heisman Top 10 Week 3: SEC Bias Abound


2. Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly

Like another SEC quarterback who had his national coming-out party against Alabama, Ole Miss playmaker Chad Kelly has swagger to spare. How many other Heisman candidates can say they have viral mix tapes?

Regrettable as Kelly’s rap from his Clemson days might be, he’s put other errors from his past in the rearview mirror while driving Ole Miss forward. David Ubben’s Sports On Earth feature on Kelly’s renewed focus sheds light on the quarterback’s renewed focus.

In turn, Ole Miss has renewed focus on winning an SEC championship, taking a big step in that direction with a road win over Alabama.

1. LSU RB Leonard Fournette

The nation’s new leading rusher (per game average) stomped all over Auburn Saturday, averaging an absurd 12 yards per carry en route to 228 yards total, and recorded his second consecutive 3-touchdown game. Fournette’s highlight reel against Auburn looks like a video game set to the lowest difficulty.
