Heisman Chatter for Bama's Ingram ...

#1. Mark Ingram, Alabama, RB, Soph.
Last week: 18 rushes, 99 yards in a 12-10 victory against Tennessee

Season: 153 rushes, 1,004 yards, 8 TDs; 19 receptions, 186 yards, 3 TDs

Heisman-o-meter: This is how good those 99 rushing yards were: This season, Tennessee has allowed only one player -- Auburn's Ben Tate -- to rush for more (128 yards), and he got 25 carries to do it. The next highest amount was 80 yards by UCLA's Johnathan Franklin, and someone you may have heard of, Tim Tebow, ran for 76 on 24 carries. So, while Ingram didn't get loose like he usually does, particularly when he was not in the Wildcat, he had a solid effort. And, yes, I realize his fumble set off a chain of events that nearly lost 'Bama the game, but considering it was his first lost fumble in 322 college touches, this is not a chronic problem. He remains No. 1, but just barely.

Up next: Nov. 7 vs. LSU

#2 Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska, DT, Sr.
#3 Golden Tate, Notre Dame, WR, Jr.
#4 C.J. Spiller, Clemson, RB, Sr.
#5 Noel Devine, West Virginia, RB, Jr.
#6 Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame, QB, Jr.
#7 Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech, RB, Fr.
#8 Case Keenum, Houston, QB, Jr.
#9 Tim Tebow, Florida, QB, Sr.
#10 Ryan Mathews, Fresno State, RB, Jr.
