As the calendar has flipped over to November, we are officially in the heart of the college football season. At this point every single game is a must win, because one loss could be mean the end of a dream.
With only six undefeated teams left in the country, the national title picture is becoming a lot clearer.
Furthermore, the top two teams in all of college football, LSU and Alabama, face off this weekend in Tuscaloosa in what should be the game of the year. The winner of this contest likely will make their way to the title game, while the loser will be headed to the Sugar Bowl.
One player that will look to help his team win this game is LSU running back Kenny Hilliard. A year ago Hilliard was playing at Patterson High School, but now he is going to be competing on the nation's biggest stage.
Hilliard is just one of a number of first-year players who are proving invaluable to their teams.
In this slideshow I will rank the top five true freshmen in all of college football. These rankings will be based on how much potential these student athletes have shown in the early part of their college careers.
