Sports Illustrated college football writer Ivan Maisel will break down the Heisman race every week of the 2001 season.

1. David Carr, QB, Fresno State

2001 stats: 64-of-108 (59.3 percent), 778 yards, 7 TDs, 1 INT The leader of the most exciting story in the sport. And he can play, too.

2. Damien Anderson, TB, Northwestern

2001 stats: 28 carries, 113 yards

He played a decent game last Friday at UNLV. The whole team looked as if it was scraping the rust off. He'll get better.

3. Ken Dorsey, Miami

2001 stats: 34-of-52 (65.4 percent), 659 yards, 5 TDs, 2 INTs

Yes, he played well. But can you reward a guy for playing well against the Rutgerses of the world?

4. Kurt Kittner, QB, Illinois

2001 stats: 35-of-68 (51.5 percent), 538 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INTs

The Illini didn't exactly sing in squeaking by Northern Illinois. But Kittner kept them focused and they did enough to win.

5. DeShaun Foster, TB, UCLA

2001 stats: 52 carries, 299 yards, 1 TD

Two games, two solid performances. He looked better against Kansas than against Alabama but he's supposed to, isn't he? My simplest recommendation: I like watching him play.
