LSU's Leonard Fournette Continues To Lead ESPN's Heisman Watch, Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott Moving Up

The 2015 college football season appears to be the year of the running backs. 

LSU sophomore running back Leonard Fournette continues to lead ESPN's Heisman Watch, while two of the next three players in the poll also play the position. 

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott has moved up to No. 3 in the poll after his performance against Indiana. TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin is No. 2. Georgia running back Nick Chubb is No. 4.

Here's the full poll: 

  1. LSU's Leonard Fournette 
  2. TCU's Trevone Boykin
  3. Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott
  4. Georgia's Nick Chubb
  5. Texas A&M's Myles Garrett
  6. Cal's Jared Goff
  7. Alabama's Derrick Henry
  8. Stanford's Kevin Hogan
  9. Baylor's Seth Russell
  10. TCU's Josh Doctson
  11. USC's Cody Kessler
  12. Baylor's Corey Coleman

It's hard to see anyone topping Fournette, but Elliott has a couple big games late in the season that could help him supplant the LSU star.
