Boston College RB Andre Williams sets school, ACC records (
So why shouldn't Williams receive Heisman consideration? The aforementioned single-game accomplishments throughout the season have been headline-worthy, but he is also a key piece of Boston College's rebound this season. Williams could, and should, at least receive consideration for one of the three spots on a Heisman voter's ballot.

"He's a great back and a hard runner, and he had a pretty physical offensive line," Caldwell told reporters after BC piled up its most rushing yards in a game (420) since 1973. "I give him props. He's leading the nation in rushing yards, so he's obviously the man when it comes to running."

BC most likely is a candidate for five of the eight ACC bowl vacancies. BC’s best case scenario is to win out and play an opponent from the American Athletic Conference at the Russell Athletic Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 26. Postseason games in Shreveport, La., Annapolis, Md., and El Paso, Texas, are likely bowl destinations in the event of a split by BC. The scrambling is underway in both the Coastal and Atlantic divisions of the ACC and it won’t be settled until the final weekend.

Heisman voters are a fickle bunch. You never know who is going to gain the consensus late. But Williams has earned his spot and if his season continues like this, he is going to run over anyone who doubts him.

With five points in the first half -- a field goal and two extra points -- Nate Freese became BC’s all-time leading scorer. The place-kicker and punter came into the game needing three points to tie Steve Aponavicius’ school record of 290 points. He tied the mark with a 25-yard field goal in the first quarter, and passed the mark with an extra point after Williams’ 17-yard TD later in the quarter.

“I kind of put that (record) in the back seat because it’s more important we got No. 6, the game meant that much,” said Freese. “Senior Day and getting No. 6 was all I was focused on because we have a tight-knit group of seniors.”
