COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPOTLIGHT / WEEK 6

Leading Men

October 01, 2000

MICHAEL VICK

Quarterback, Virginia Tech

Mad Mike--we mean that literally after the way the Hokies played early in a 48-34 win over Boston College--was at his best on a fourth-quarter 82-yard touchdown run. He finished with 210 yards rushing.

Season 41 carries, 429 yards, 7 TDs; 31 of 61 passing, 473 yards, 4 TDs

Next Temple, Saturday

LADAINIAN TOMLINSON

Running Back, TCU

Tomlinson's 121 yards against Navy in a 24-0 victory was 65 below his season average, but the extra defensive attention he received didn't faze him. "I'm not a selfish guy, so it isn't frustrating to me," he said.

Season 119 carries, 680 yards, 8 TDs

Next at Hawaii, Saturday

CHRIS WEINKE

Quarterback, Florida State

Weinke's 234 yards and three touchdown passes against Maryland on Thursday took a back seat to the foot injury that cut his night short. But this Heisman campaign isn't headed to the DL after doctors found no broken bones.

Season 98 of 154, 1,478 yards, 13 TDs

Next at No. 10 Miami, Saturday

DREW BREES

Quarterback, Purdue

Brees threw his 10th touchdown this season, for a Big Ten record 74 in his career, and even caught one, but a 22-20 loss to a horrible--albeit emotionally charged--Penn State team certainly can't help his Heisman cause.

Season 126 of 208, 1,644 yards, 10 TDs

Next No. 9 Michigan, Saturday
