Notre Dame Heisman watch: Week 3
By Matt Fortuna
It will take a big turnaround for Notre Dame to be in position to boast any Heisman hopefuls. If the Fighting Irish do get going, they will at least have some star power that grabs the nation's attention.
Michael Floyd: The question now is just how far can he outdistance himself from every receiver in Notre Dame history. Most career catches? Check. Most career receiving yards? Check. His 15th 100-yard receiving game tied Golden Tate for most in Irish history, and his 25 catches through two games are tied for most in the nation. His 313 receiving yards this season are the third-most in the country.
Cierre Wood: Consecutive 100-yard games have him 18th in the nation in rushing yards. The 100-yard performances must continue -- and the fumbling must not -- for him to gain national attention if Notre Dame can put together a respectable season after a disappointing 0-2 start.
