The BC Eagles have a sneaky Heisman Trophy candidate?

Usually I go to one Boston College football game per year, and this season I chose October 5th, vs Army.  On that day I was somewhat stunned to watch Eagles running back Andre Williams rush for 263 yards and 5 touchdowns in the victory.  Late in the game Williams actually had 264 yards, tying the school's single game record, but he lost one on his final carry.

No matter, he shattered the mark last week with 295 yards on the ground in a win at New Mexico State.  Then on Saturday he blew his week old record out of the water by rushing for 339 yards (also an ACC single game record) while helping BC knock off NC State.

Williams has carried the ball for 1810 total yards so far this year (averaging 181 per game), already the most prolific rushing season in both school and conference history; with two more games left on the schedule.  That number is also good for best in the nation, a ridiculous 371 more than second place Kapri Bibbs of Colorado State, who has 1439.  In the last six weeks Williams has put up 3 of the top 10 rushing performances by any player in the country all season.  Heisman Trophy?
