07:32 AM ET 11.18 | Who would you have guessed? Before the season started, if you were going to pick one running back in college football who you thought might lead the nation in rushing, it probably would've been someone like Todd Gurley of Georgia, Ka'Deem Carey of Arizona or Lache Seastrunk of Baylor. It probably would not have been Andre Williams of Boston College. Nonetheless, through 10 games this season, the senior Eagle is on his way to the best season by a college running back since 2007. That was the year that Kevin Smith of UCF led the nation in rushing by averaging 183 yards per game while gaining 2,567 yards and scoring 29 touchdowns in 14 games. After rolling over North Carolina State on Saturday for 339 yards and two scores, Williams has 1,810 yards and is averaging 181 yards per game.

Someone wake up the interns. This is a MLB site, not CFB!

Saw Williams vs. NMSU. Kid's a workhorse.

Heisman?

He won't win the Heisman. Not hyped enough and on a not so great team. But he can definitely play ball.

Heisman?

When a qb who leads the Nation in passing gets automatic Heisman talk. A running back who leads the nation in rushing, not so much. My how the game has changed.

If they were 10-0, there' be talk. But they are only 6-4.
