Leading Men

November 04, 2001

ERIC CROUCH

Quarterback, Nebraska

Crouch didn't do anything spectacular, but then again he didn't need to after last week's electrifying touchdown against Oklahoma, a play that will be burned in the memories of Heisman Trophy voters.

Season: 162 carries, 847 yards, 15 TDs; 89 for 154, 1,252 yards, 7 TDs.

Nextvs. Kansas State, Saturday

KEN DORSEY

Quarterback, Miami

What Dorsey lacks in sheer numbers this season, he made up for a bit Saturday when he threw his 50th career touchdown pass to become Miami's all-time leader, ahead of Vinny Testaverde and Steve Walsh. The way it's looking, Miami can't lose for Dorsey to stay in Heisman contention.

Season: 116 for 192, 1,782 yards, 15 TDs, 4 INT.

Nextat Boston College, Saturday

DeSHAUN FOSTER

Running back, UCLA

Foster broke the 100-yard barrier--barely (102)--against Washington State, but it took him28 carries. On top of that, the Bruins lost by six and Foster's third-quarter fumble led directly to a Cougar touchdown.

Season: 216 carries, 1,109 yards, 12 TDs

Nextvs. No. 8 Oregon, Saturday

REX GROSSMAN

Quarterback, Florida

Grossman passed for more than 300 yards for the eighth consecutive time this season and that, as much as anything, will be a strong selling point. If he can perform similarly--and win--the next three weeks against South Carolina, Florida State and Tennessee, how can the Heisman not be his?

Season: 178 for 269, 2,942 yards, 27 TDs, 10 INT.

Nextat No. 17 South Carolina, Saturday
