Should Chris Long be a candidate for the Heisman Trophy? Ask Al Groh, and he'll tell you absolutely. The senior defensive end is one of the nation's best defensive players.

Entering this week's game at North Carolina State, Long has an ACC leading ten sacks, averaging 1.25 per game, which is also good enough for third in the country. Long also boasts 13 tackles for loss, and eight passes defended, both of which are among the top five in the conference.

Long and the Cavaliers will travel to NC State on Saturday. Click on the above video link to hear from Groh and Long, and to hear the Wolfpack's thoughts on taking on the Cavaliers.
