1. Jason White, QB, Oklahoma It was White's to lose heading into the weekend. And he didn't lose it--he still hasn't thrown an interception since Oct. 16--but his grip has loosened.
2. Alex Smith, QB, Utah He's too selfless to want this award anyway. "This team was so prepared for this moment," Smith told The Salt Lake Tribune after beating BYU. "Total team effort."
3. Cedric Benson, RB, Texas Can you really penalize a guy for his team being idle--especially when he's five spots ahead of a certain OU freshman in the national rushing standings?
4. Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma With his 10th 100-yard game of the season, Peterson tied the record held by Wisconsin's Anthony Davis for most games over the century mark as a freshman.
