Last week: 12 rushes, 41 yards; 3 receptions, 25 yards in a 52-14 loss at Arizona
Season: 146 rushes, 728 yards, 11 touchdowns; 26 receptions, 385 yards, 4 touchdowns; 14 punt returns, 407 yards, 3 touchdowns

The lowdown: Drew was swarmed from the start against the Wildcats in the desert, and once the game was out of hand, there was no point in running the ball. There are still those who believe Drew has had a better season than Bush. The Watchman is not one of them.

Up next: Saturday vs. Arizona State

7. Drew Olson, QB, UCLA, Sr.

Last week: 23-of-38 passing, 232 yards, 2 touchdowns in a 52-14 loss at Arizona
Season: 196-of-295 passing, 2,399 yards, 25 touchdowns, 3 interceptions

The lowdown: Neither Olson, nor backfield mate Drew were the reason the Bruins dropped from the ranks of the undefeated -- that was the fault of UCLA's porous defense. Despite the loss, Olson has had a season that is as statistically impressive as any quarterback in the country.

Up next: Saturday vs. Arizona State

8. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis, Sr.

Last week: 21 rushes, 167 yards in a 37-20 loss to UAB
Season: 216 rushes, 1,476 yards, 12 touchdowns

The lowdown: After a short hiatus, Williams is back on the list -- even though his team just lost to UAB to drop to 4-4. Williams, who has a sprained left ankle, is not going to take home the stiff-armed statue -- Heisman winners don't have losses to the Blazers on their resumes -- but he can make some noise on the national radar this weekend with a big performance against a BCS-conference squad.

Up next: Saturday at Tennessee
