RB Marcus Lattimore

South Carolina, Soph.

Last week: 37 rushes for 246 yards and three TDs; four receptions for 25 yards in 24-21 win over Navy.

Season: 87 rushes for 534 yards and seven TDs; nine receptions for 66 yards.

The Gamecock's workhorse continues his climb up the Watchman's list. Now the national leader in yardage and carries, Lattimore played two halves that standing on their own would have been impressive. He ran for 118 yards and two scores on 13 carries in the first two quarters, then followed it up with 24 carries for 129 yards and a TD in the second in posting a career-best 246 yards. You'll find concern here about the heavy workload Lattimore is getting this early in the season; the 37 carries were the third time he's had at least that many touches in a game.

Next up: Saturday vs. Vanderbilt
