. Florida State’s defense has been stifling, though, so Saturday’s game in Tallahassee could either propel him into the Heisman talk or boot him out of it.

2. Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel: In the 52-0 victory over Wake Forest, he completed 15 of 24 attempts (62.5 percent) for 176 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also had one rushing touchdown. Manuel now has seven career games in which he has thrown multiple touchdown passes. He has thrown six touchdown passes in the past two games.

: He’s ba-ack … and in his 2012 debut on Saturday against Furman, he looked just as good as he did last year. How’s this for a vote of confidence: Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher on Monday said Watkins had the most impact in a freshman season since Herschel Walker. Watkins had a 58-yard touchdown run in the Tigers' win over Furman. Watkins finished with four catches for 52 yards and 119 all-purpose yards. He could definitely play his way up this list. He's played only one half this year.
