XN Sports Heisman Watch: Todd Gurley Runs to Top of the List

Todd Gurley

Georgia RB Todd Gurley – The only running back in our top five, a Heisman win by Gurley would snap a QB stranglehold on the award (four straight winners and nine of the last 10 have been QB’s). Gurley ran for 163 yards and two TDs in a rout of Vanderbilt and even completed a 50-yard pass. Already averaging 154.6 yards per game and 8.2 per carry, Gurley has a big game against Missouri this week to keep his stock up.
