Andre' Woodson: The Kentucky quarterback bounced back from a tough night in a loss at South Carolina on Oct. 4 by engineering a triple-OT upset of LSU. Facing the top-ranked Tigers, Woodson threw for three touchdowns and ran for another while audibling on half the Wildcats' plays.
Mike Hart: Since losses to Appalachian State and Oregon, the senior tailback has flat out carried the Wolverines, though he left in the second quarter of a 48--21 win over Purdue last Saturday with an injured right ankle.
Matt Ryan: Boston College's long-shot national title run—and Ryan's Heisman campaign—will be made or broken on Oct. 25 at Virginia Tech.
Graham Harrell: It doesn't matter what system he plays in. Given his 31 TD passes, 74.4% completion rate and only three interceptions in 347 attempts, the Texas Tech QB needs to be taken seriously.
Tim Tebow: Florida's sophomore quarterback has thrown for 13 touchdowns and run for nine while piling up nearly 2,000 yards of total offense. If the Gators win out, he'll be among the top three.
Darren McFadden: His team's 0--3 start in SEC play is an albatross for the Arkansas superback.
DeSean Jackson: Four catches for five yards in Cal's deflating 31--28 loss to Oregon State will not help D-Jax get to New York City.
