After the first major week of college games, NC State's Philip Rivers has jumped out front of the very early Heisman race, according to CNNSI.com.

CNNSI.com: Rivers Early #1 in Heisman Race

"1. Philip Rivers, QB, N.C. State, Sr.

Last week (vs. Western Carolina): 26-of-30 for 320 yards with 3 TDs in 59-20 win

Let's see here: Completing 86.7 percent of your passes against Western Carolina ... that should equate to roughly a 70 percent average against a D I-A team. Which, we all know, would still be quite good. Rivers gets the Demon Deacs next week, but on Sept. 13, Ohio Stadium awaits. Phil, heed what happened to Pickett against the Buckeyes -- and don't let it happen to you."
