At 6'5" and 225 pounds, Rowe is a rising star with an NFL body. In Year 1 running the pistol offense, a modified shotgun attack concocted by Wolf Pack coach Chris Ault, Rowe completed 62% of his passes as Nevada finished 9-3.
Recruited by most schools as a safety, the 6'1", 210-pound Smith gained 1,178 yards as a freshman (including 202 in the Golden Knights' Hawaii Bowl loss to Nevada), making him the leading returning rusher in the Sunshine State.
TCU AT UTAH
In Year 1 of the expanded BCS, there could be a spot for the Mountain West champion-and the winner of this game will have the inside track. The Horned Frogs took last year's showdown in overtime, ending the Utes' 18-game winning streak and starting a 10-game streak of their own en route to an 11-1 season.
NOTRE DAME VS. NAVY
Which is more daunting for the Midshipmen-the thought of having lost 42 straight games to the Irish or the memory of being shredded by Brady Quinn (four TDs) last year? Coach Paul Johnson said then that his team had to play "close to perfect" to pull off the upset; the same statement applies in '06 when the teams meet in Baltimore.
