WACO, Texas (AP) - Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk boldly proclaimed that he would win the 2013 Heisman Trophy, or at least get very close.
He's backing up that statement made 10 months ago with his performance on the field.
Even while playing only about a half in each game so far for the 15th-ranked Bears, Seastrunk is the nation's second-leading rusher with 147 yards a game.
His school-record streak of eight 100-yard games coincides with Baylor's eight-game winning streak.
The Bears are averaging 779 total yards and 70 points a game. Their first road game is Saturday at Kansas State.
Baylor's winning streak and Seastrunk's run of 100-yard games started last November in a 52-24 victory over the Wildcats, who entered that game as the No. 1 team in the BCS standings.
