Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is among the leading candidates for the Heisman Trophy and has the Wildcats in the thick of the title hunt.

Kansas State. The Wildcats (10-0) are leading the Bowl Championship Series rankings after Alabama stumbled last week. Kansas State has one tough game remaining against No. 15 Texas in twoweeks . If the Wildcats take care of business, they’ll play for the title.

WHO’S NOT

Louisiana-Lafayette. The Ragin’ Cajuns found themselves with a prime opportunity to shock Florida in The Swamp, until they allowed two touchdowns in the final two minutes. Louisiana-Lafayette played not to lose at the end of the game and got burned.

RANKING THE BIG FOUR

1. Georgia (9-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). The football Bulldogs better win all they can, because the basketball team looks like it’s in for a long winter after losing by double digits to Youngstown State.

2. Clemson (9-1, 6-1 ACC). Several websites project the Tigers to play in a BCS bowl game if they win out.

3. South Carolina (8-2, 6-2 SEC). Jadeveon Clowney has 9.5 sacks and 17 tackles for loss.

4. Georgia Tech (5-5, 4-3 ACC). Yellow Jackets still clinging to hopes of an ACC Championship Game berth.
