2009 Heisman Hopefuls III

Top 10

Tim Tebow (QB - Florida) - FIVE TOUCHDOWNS.

Colt McCoy (QB - Texas) - McCoy put together another impressive performance with over 300 yards, three passing touchdowns, and one running touchdown; however, he posted an uncharacteristically low completion percentage of 63.8%. You know you are good when 63.8% is considered low for you.

Jahvid Best (RB - California-B) - Best continues to triumph with an 144 yard ground display along with two touchdowns (one rushing and one receiving).

Case Keenum (QB - Houston) - Keenum had his second consecutive game in which he threw for over 350 yards. Keenum also registered another 3 passing TD's and 1 on the ground, but what was most impressive about his performance was that he led his Houston Cougars to an upset victory over sixth ranked Oklahoma St.

Dez Bryant (WR - Oklahoma St.) - Unfortunately for Bryant, he was on the other end of Case Keenum's victory upset. On offense Bryant caught 5 passes for 85 yards and was held scoreless; however, Bryant had another game changing play when he returned a punt for 82 yard touchdown which helped the Cowboys settle down the lead to only 3 points.

Max Hall (QB - BYU) - Hall had another 300 yards, another 2 TD's, and another win. The Cougars' leader also completed 75% of his passes.

Taylor Potts (QB - Texas Tech) - Seven Touchdowns? 7 TD's? Touchdowns thrown seven times? Better question: Graham Harrell, who?
Daryll Clark (QB - Penn St.) - Clark threw for 240 yards and 3 touchdowns. His consistency for the Nittany Lions has solidified Clark as a Heisman candidate. Lets see if he can continue his roll against Temple.

Jonathan Dwyer (RB - Georgia Tech) - Dwyer had only 66 yards and was held scoreless against conference opponent Clemson.

Jacquizz Rodgers (RB - Oregon St.) - Rodgers had over 200 yards on offense and ran in a TD for the Beavers. The small back has shown toughness as he has fought through a shoulder injury to put together two impressive games.

Honorable Mention

Jimmy Clausen (Notre Dame), Dan LeFevour (Central Michigan), Tony Pike (Cincinnati), Terrelle Pryor (Ohio State), Todd Reesing (Kansas), Zac Robinson (Oklahoma St.), Jevan Snead (Ole Miss), Joe Webb (UAB), and Juice Williams (Illinois)

Ralph Bolden (Purdue), Graig Cooper (Miami-FL), Noel Devine (WVU), Kendall Hunter (Oklahoma St.), Joe McKnight (USC), Evan Royster (Penn St.), Charles Scott (LSU), C.J. Spiller (Clemson), and Ryan Williams (VT)

High Tide

Sam Bradford
(QB - Oklahoma)

Deep Water

No one is caught in deep water yet.

Spotlight Players

Notre Dame Offensive Line - The O-line give Clausen all the time he need against the Wolverine Defense helping to catapult him into the Heisman race.. The veteran O-Line with only one new starter also opened up plenty of holes for Armando Allen. Clausen was not sacked once and the team only had four plays where the team lost yards (three of which were for only 1 yard). Too made the Fighting Irish couldn't pull off the win.

Zac Clark (OL - Oregon) - While defending a PAT, #99's extra effort led to a blocked kick and ultimately became the difference in the game when Purdue was forced to go for two on its last possession to keep up with Oregon (which failed).
