Gurley is the No. 2 on the weekly Heisman Watch from HeismanPundit.com, which notes Gurley is close to a “magical” 2,000-yard pace.
“It may take a Bulldog appearance in the SEC title game for him to get there, which means Gurley has to lead his team to the SEC East title, the website notes. "Otherwise, he may be sitting at home on the last weekend of college football. It will be hard to win the Heisman if that happens, but he appears to be on pace to get to New York as a finalist no matter what.”
Gurley was also named Monday to the Paul Hornung weekly honor roll.
He rushed for a career-high 208 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against Tennessee on a day he also had 30 receiving yards and 47 kickoff return yards.
