Matt Ryan gets behind Andre Williams' Heisman campaign

Boston College RB Andre Williams leads the nation with 2,102 rushing yards this season.

Boston College running back Andre Williams leads the nation in rushing and set an ACC single-season record for rushing yards. In doing so, he made himself a Heisman candidate.

He's an extreme long shot to win, but that didn't deter former BC and current Atlanta Falcons star quarterback Matt Ryan and his wife, Sarah, from modeling "#Andre44Heisman" T-shirts in front of their Christmas tree, then tweeting out the pictures Tuesday.

The tweet included a shout-out to BC athletic director Brad Bates for getting them the shirts.

Williams already has rushed for 2,102 yards, and he has a chance to become just the fourth player in FBS history with 2,200 rushing yards.
