QB Brandon Weeden

Oklahoma State, Sr.

Last week: 42-of-58 passing for 476 yards, three TDs and three INTs in a 37-31 loss to Iowa State

Season (11 games): 355-of-486 passing for 4,111 yards, 34 TDs and 12 INTs

Weeden's yardage in a loss to Iowa State was as gargantuan as we've come to expect during his rise up this list. He's now thrown for 1,401 yards over the past three games to go along with 12 touchdowns -- numbers worthy of a certain bronze trophy. But he made costly mistakes against Iowa State. After the Cyclones cut the Cowboys' lead to 24-17 late in the third quarter, Weeden managed one touchdown and two picks over his next 22 attempts -- he came in averaging 47.5 attempts between picks -- and ended the night with his third pick of the game. His chances of winning the Heisman, just like the Cowboys' chances of winning the BCS title, were greatly deflated by the loss. In fact, the setback may have cost Weeden a shot at making it to New York.

Next up: Saturday, Dec. 3 vs. No. 12 Oklahoma
