QUICK HITS

— Looking for next season's Heisman front-runner? UCLA linebacker and part-time running back Myles Jack is primed to be all over the magazine covers in 2014. The freshman has five touchdowns in the last two games since coach Jim Mora decided to work him into the tailback rotation. Jack's long-term future is probably at linebacker, where he is already one of the best in the country. If he can get about 10 carries per game next season, he could one of the biggest stars in college football.

— Colorado State running back Kapri Bibbs is eighth in the nation in rushing at 130.8 yards per game and leads the country with 25 touchdowns. He's only been starting for five games. In those five games, he has 1,010 yards and 19 touchdowns. He's helped the Rams and second-year coach Jim McElwain become bowl-eligible for the first time since 2008.

— Arkansas (3-7, 0-6) plays Mississippi State at home in what is probably coach Bret Bielema's best chance to avoid the Razorbacks' first winless SEC season since joining the league in 1992. Arkansas finishes at No. 18 LSU.

UNDER THE RADAR GAME OF THE WEEK

Utah (4-6) at Washington State (5-5). A victory can put Mike Leach's Cougars back in a bowl game. Leach never missed the postseason in 10 years at Texas Tech, but he went 3-9 in his first season at Washington State.
