Taxas Tech QB B.J. Symouns
Iowa State SS JaMaine Billups

Symons is posting mad numbers in coach Mike Leach's let-it-fly system: 586 passing yards against N.C. State, 661 versus Mississippi and a Big 12-record eight TD throws in a 59-28 rout of Texas A&M. The task of stopping the juggernaut falls to the hard-hitting Billups, leader of the Cyclones' secondary. Iowa State's defense has only two interceptions, but the 5'9", 208-pound senior grabbed one in last Saturday's loss to Oklahoma, returning it 77 yards for a score.
