Heisman Trophy Power Rankings: Week Two

<strong>Teddy Bridgewater,</strong> QB, Louisville<br>
<strong>Week Two</strong><br>
Passing: 22-232, 397 yds, 4 TD, 0 INT<br>
Rushing: 1 rush, -1 yd, 0 TD<br>
<strong>Week One</strong><br>
Passing: 23-28, 355 yds, 5 TD, 1 INT<br>
Rushing: 2 rush, 1 yd, 0 TD<br><br>

That should be consistent this entire season, which is a double-edged sword for Bridgewater's Heisman candidacy; Louisville has a weak schedule, so while he should put up enormous numbers, the lack of a marquee victory could ultimately hurt his case.

Tomorrow night, Te’o will try to make his already-unbelievable mark on college football and the University of Notre Dame more... Read more »

Notre Dame Stays Undefeated: So What?

Notre Dame Stays Undefeated: So What?
Saturday’s dominant win at Oklahoma was arguably the biggest victory for the Fighting Irish since Lou Holtz left campus. Notre Dame moved to 8-0 on the season, Manti Te’o further forced his name into the Heisman Trophy conversation, and the conversation surrounding the Irish will now shift from “Are they for real?” to “Are they...
