Wolfe howls for Heisman

OXFORD, Ohio - I spent my Sunday evening watching the best college football player in America.

His name isn't Ginn or Smith. He doesn't play for USC, Florida, Texas or Ohio State, although he was clearly the best player on the field when his team faced the Buckeyes, rushing for 171 yards and catching five passes for another 114 against the nation's top-ranked team.

His name is Garrett Wolfe. He plays for Northern Illinois.

The Great Wolfe had an off night on Sunday with "just" 162 yards and two touchdowns against the Miami RedHawks.

You'll have to excuse the Great One. His legs were a little tired after riddling the Ball State defense for a school-record 353 yards last week.

Wolfe, the nation's leading rusher, is on pace to shatter numerous NCAA rushing records.
