COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPOTLIGHT / WEEK 5

Leading Men

September 24, 2000

MICHAEL BENNETT

Running Back, Wisconsin

Legitimately could have been in Sydney this weekend competing in 100 meters. Had to sit out game last week because of shoe-gate, but had a remarkable 48-carry, 298-yard effort in a stunning 47-44 loss to Northwestern.

Season: 106 carries, 711 yards, 5 td

Next: at Michigan, Saturday

LADAINIAN TOMLINSON

Running Back, Texas Christian

A very ordinary 140 yards in 23 carries doesn't hurt Tomlinson, who sat out most of the second half in a 52-3 rout of Arkansas State. But it may derail his plans on rushing for 2,000 yards this season.

Season: 86 carries, 559, 7 TDs

Next: at Navy, Saturday

CHRIS WEINKE

Quarterback, Florida State

A 31-0 victory over Louisville makes things look good on the surface, but Weinke threw three interceptions against the Cardinals and passed for only 221 yards in what was a personally lackluster performance.

Season: 87 of 139, 1,244 yards, 10 TDs

Next: at Maryland, Thursday

DREW BREES

Quarterback, Purdue

Big Ten career passing records continued to fall in a 38-24 victory over Minnesota. "We throw the ball so much, those things are going to come," said Brees, who completed 33 of 49 attempts for 409 yards.

Season: 103 of 159, 1,363, 9 TDs

Next: at Penn State, Saturday

Note--Virginia Tech's Michael Vick didn't play this week.
