COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPOTLIGHT / WEEK 11

Leading Men

November 05, 2000

MICHAEL VICK

Quarterback, Virginia Tech

A fumble, an interception, five yards rushing and nine yards passing in a loss at Miami. Hurt or not, if Vick remains in serious contention for the postseason award after this, it should be renamed the Hype-man Trophy.

Season 99 carries, 589 yards, 9 TDs

71 of 142, 1,032 yards, 6 TDs

Next at Central Florida, Saturday

LADAINIAN TOMLINSON

Running Back, TCU

The "LT for the Heisman" campaign took a hit with a loss at San Jose State, but Tomlinson did his part with 155 yards in 31 carries and two touchdowns. A loss to a nobody, however, usually doesn't sit well with voters.

Season 267 carries, 1,448 yards, 17 TDs

Next Fresno State, Saturday

CHRIS WEINKE

Quarterback, Florida State

Bowden Bowl II turned into Weinke's show as Papa let his senior rub it in with a 521-yard performance on 27-of-43 passing. Weinke's 3,490 yards this season break Thad Busby's single-season school record of 3,317.

Season 220 of 351, 3,490 yards, 25 TDs

Next at Wake Forest, Saturday

JOSH HEUPEL

Quarterback, Oklahoma

Heupel, who has vaulted into serious Heisman contention, did more in a half--21 of 29 passing for 313 yards and three touchdowns--than most do in four quarters. The best player on the best team definitely deserves his run.

Season 185 of 273, 2,507 yards, 15 TDs

Next at No. 24 Texas A&M, Saturday
