October 05, 2008|Lonnie White

Oklahoma's Sam Bradford, Missouri's Chase Daniel and Texas' Colt McCoy, three quarterbacks from the Big 12 Conference, had strong efforts Saturday, and USC's Mark Sanchez stepped back into the hunt for this season's Heisman Trophy. A look at their performances and those of other Heisman hopefuls:

SAM BRADFORD, sophomore quarterback, Oklahoma

The Sooners enjoyed a blowout victory over Baylor and Bradford led the way with a near-perfect game. Stats: 23 of 31 passing for 372 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

COLT McCOY, junior quarterback, Texas

McCoy had another solid game in leading the Longhorns to an impressive road win over Colorado. Stats: 23 of 30 passing for 262 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions; 11 carries for 39 yards rushing.

TIM TEBOW, junior quarterback, Florida

Tebow was the key in the Gators' win over Arkansas as they bounced back from last week's upset loss to Mississippi. Stats: 17 of 26 passing for 217 yards, two touchdowns and one interception; 12 carries for 32 yards rushing.

JEVON RINGER, senior running back, Michigan State

The Spartans had to battle in a close victory over Iowa, which did a good job of slowing down Ringer. Stats: 25 carries for 91 yards; one catch for three yards.

CHASE DANIEL, senior quarterback, Missouri

Daniel's passing got the Tigers off to a strong start in a big road win over Nebraska. Stats: 18 of 24 passing for 206 yards, three touchdowns without an interception.

MARK SANCHEZ, junior quarterback, USC

Sanchez displayed great mobility and arm strength in the Trojans' lopsided win over Oregon. Stats: 20 of 30 passing for 340 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
