    Several weeks into the college football season, the stars of 2020 are separating themselves from the rest of the pack, just like the championship contenders.

    With the Big Ten and Pac-12 set to join the fray soon, other big names will begin to surge to the top of the stat sheets. But for now, it’s an early season dominated by SEC, Big 12 and ACC playmakers.

    In some cases, like for Clemson quarterback and Heisman Trophy front-runner Trevor Lawrence, it’s expected. Other surprises are playing their way into superstardom, and some elite players are still having big seasons for teams off to subpar starts.

    A few sets of teammates are on here, too, but that’s just the way the stats are shaking out so far this season.

    With eligibility essentially out the door this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s going to be exciting to see which guys play their way into the top end of the conversation for the NFL draft. For others, it’s about building their reputation on the college gridiron. Plenty of guys on this list have national championship hopes remaining this year, as well.

    Let’s take a look at some college football stars putting up ridiculous numbers in the early season.

    Georgia is the nation’s top defensive unit, full of difference-making playmakers who don’t pile up the stats but just embarrass opponents in the box scores. Alabama has a slew of former elite prospects all over its defense. LSU and Florida are off to awful starts but are known as mass producers of defensive talent.

    But the best defensive player in the SEC hails from unheralded Missouri.

    That would be hard-hitting linebacker Nick Bolton, who was a first-team All-SEC selection a year ago


College Football Matrix says Pac-12 playoff hopes caught in numbers game vs. SEC and ACC

Dave Bartoo — known as the “College Football Matrix” — joined me on the radio show on Monday to talk about the Pac-12 football schedule.

Does the conference have a realistic shot at making the College Football Playoff based on the schedule it released over the weekend?

Listen to the full interview with Bartoo.

“The playoff committee is all about numbers,” Bartoo said. “It’s a numbers game. It’s not about perception, or brand. It’s about winning the most vs. Top 25 games.”

On the Ducks playing their crossover game vs. UCLA:

“Unless UCLA somehow gets to 4-3, there have zero value. I would have much rather seen ASU or Utah there if you’re Oregon and trying to get to the playoff.”

On the Big 12 Conference still being very much alive in the playoff talk:

“The Big 12 perception is Oklahoma and Texas. Both look terrible. The conference is down. The nice thing about the playoff committee though is perception isn’t part of it. It’s a numbers game. From a perception standpoint everybody thinks the conference is down. From a reality standpoint, conferences don’t make playoffs, teams do… there are teams that are still involved in the Big 12 who are playoff contenders, it’s just not the ones we expected.”

On a one-loss ACC or SEC team vs. a 7-0 Pac-12 team for a playoff spot:

“If you’re Georgia and 10-1 and you just lost to Alabama in a close game in the SEC title game. Margin of loss is tiny. You kicked the crap out of everyone else. You have a win over a Top 25 Florida, a win over Top 25 Auburn, and you have a win over a Top 25 Tennessee and you have a quality win over Missouri. Even though they’re 10-1, they could be 9-2,
