Ouimet's Heisman (Week 11)
2. Alex Smith, QB, Utah – This quarterback and the Utes are having a great season and are headed to a BCS bowl game if they finish the season undefeated. Alex is 152 of 229 for 2,196 yards with 24 touchdowns, while only throwing two interceptions so far this season. This past week the Utes put up 63 points with Mr. Smith leading the way completing 21 of 26 for 291 yards and four touchdowns over Colorado State. This week the Utes will be traveling to Wyoming, who will give the Utes a challenge as they have already beaten Mississippi this season. Look for Alex and Coach Meyer to come into this game with the best game plan of the year as they try to win the Heisman for Alex and at the same time get a bid to the BCS.
3. Jason White, QB, Oklahoma – We know that Jason White will be in New York, but will he be able to repeat as this year's Heisman Trophy winner? Against Texas A&M he completed 19 of 35 for 292 yards and five touchdowns as he led the Sooner offense in the win on the road in College Station. He now is 161 of 258 for 2,130 yards with 25 Touchdown and that will continue this week as they are playing a very average team in Nebraska at home. He has four straight games with at least three touchdowns and Mr. White might be the first player to win back to back Heisman's since Archie Griffin if he can continue the touchdown streak the rest of the season.
4. Adrian Peterson, RB, Oklahoma – He was able to rush for 101 yards on 29 carries with one touchdown, while running for 100 plus yards in his ninth straight game. He now has 239 carries for 1,373 yards and nine touchdowns, while you will be seeing more of the same this week against Nebraska. The main problem for Mr. Peterson is quarterback Jason White is the reigning Heisman Trophy winner and is putting together an outstanding year again, but look for this freshman in a front row seat in New York.
5. Cedric Benson, RB, Texas – The Longhorns had a big win over Oklahoma State in come behind fashion, which was led by Mr. Benson's 23 carries for 142 yards and five touchdowns. He now has 242 carries for 1,439 yards and 17 touchdowns, while he will get more opportunities on the road this week at Kansas this Saturday. Don't forget this kid or count him out for New York just yet, because he is capable of anything down the stretch!
