  1. Lamar Jackson–The Louisville QB and Heisman front runner accounted for five TDs in the first half of the Cardinals  54-10 romp past North Carolina State. Jackson has 34 TDs, a school record, and still has five games remaining in the regular season. He had 359 of his 431 yards of his total offense in the first half.
  2.  West Virginia–The Mountaineers (6-0, 3-0 in Big 12) rolled over TCU 34-10 on Saturday, which was a pay back for a 40-10 TCU win last season.  West Virginia has to be considered a prime contender for the Big 12 title and perhaps more. West Virginia’s toughest remaining opponents appear to be Oklahoma on November 19th and Baylor on Dec. 3. Both games are in Morgantown. Their other opponents are Kansas, Texas, Iowa State and  Oklahoma State, who have a combined record of 12-18
  3. Alabama–The defending national champions are coming off a 3 game stretch in which they played road games at Arkansas, at Tennessee and at home against Texas A&M on Saturday. The Volunteers were unbeaten and ranked No. 9 and A&M was unbeaten and No. 6  in the polls when they dealt with the Tide. Alabama rolled over Arkansas and has continued to march the past two weeks, including Saturday’s 33-14 win. Interestingly enough Alabama was a 19.5 point favorite.  How do the Vegas boys keep doing that?
