Superunknown: Phil Dunn. Before tearing up his left knee against Miami of Ohio on Oct. 8, Dunn, a middle linebacker for Akron, had amassed 634 career tackles. Yet Dunn, a senior, was never even named honorable mention All-Mid-American Conference.
The Other Guy Award: Simeon Rice. Illinois inside linebacker Dana Howard will probably win the Butkus Award as the best linebacker in the country, even though Rice, an outside linebacker for the Illini, is second in the nation in sacks, with 16 (behind UNLV's Mark Byers, who has 20�).
Heads-I-Win-Tails-You-Lose Award: Weber State. The Wildcats won all 11 of their coin tosses this fall.
