ACC Heisman watch

Every week, I turn in my top five Heisman candidates to ESPN.com.

Most of the time, there's not an ACC player on it.

Most of the time, there shouldn't be.

If the ACC is going to produce a Heisman candidate this year, he is going to have to come from a team that wins big. As good as Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly is, his team lost to Northwestern this past weekend and the Wildcats' backup quarterback.

Every week, we'll look at who in the ACC has the best shot to become a darkhorse candidate in this year's Heisman race. This week, I've got one name for you: Virginia Tech running back David Wilson.

He's going to put up ridiculous numbers in the first four games. Against Appalachian State, he had 162 yards and three touchdowns on 16 carries -- 10.1 yards per carry. On a week in which Oregon's LaMichael James struggled, the stock of a player like Wilson goes up. Odds are his name stays on this weekly post.

The question is whether anyone else is added to it.
