COLLEGE FOOTBALL / WEEK 14

Leading Men

November 26, 2000

JOSH HEUPEL

Quarterback, Oklahoma

Heupel could have made his case for the Heisman even stronger against Oklahoma State. But completing 19 of 36 passes for a season-low 154 yards in a 12-7 victory isn't the way to do it.

Season: 256 of 389, 3,172 yards, 18 TDs

Next: vs. No. 8 Kansas State, Saturday

LaDAINIAN TOMLINSON

Running Back, Texas Christian

On Friday, the pride of the Horned Frogs gave voters what they usually want: Tomlinson broke 2,000 yards for the season, had a spectacular touchdown run and his team won in a rout over Southern Methodist. Are those shades of Troy Davis we see?

Season: 369 carries, 2,158 yards, 22 TDs

Next: Mobile Alabama Bowl, Dec. 20

CHRIS WEINKE

Quarterback, Florida State

Rumblings of "he's-too-old-to-win-the-Heisman" chatter have been emanating from all corners, but it doesn't matter if you're 18 or 28, 4,000 yards through the air is unreal.

Season: 266 of 431, 4,167 yards, 33 TDs

Next: TBA

DREW BREES

Quarterback, Purdue

All season, Brees did everything necessary to direct the Boilermakers to their first Rose Bowl berth since 1966, but a less-than-spectacular finish leaves him as a longshot.

Season: 286 of 473, 3,393 yards, 24 TDs

Next: Rose Bowl, Jan. 1

ERIC CROUCH

Quarterback, Nebraska

The Cornhuskers' resident playmaker did it again when it counted most in a 34-32 victory over Colorado on Friday. And unlike Michael Vick, he hasn't been injured.

Season: 169 carries, 971 yards, 20 TDs

75 of 156 passing, 1,101 yards, 11 TDs

Next: TBA
