DeSean Jackson WR, California.
The Bears were off last week. USC's loss to Stanford makes Jackson the only viable West Coast candidate.
This week: Oregon State.
Tim Tebow QB, Florida.
The Gators have two losses and Tebow is a sophomore. Mark this down: He'll finish second or third, then be next season's preseason favorite.
This week: Off.
Mike Hart RB, Michigan.
He should pass 1,000 yards today and has yet to have the kind of game that would knock him out of consideration.
This week: Purdue.
Chase Daniel QB, Missouri.
If he has a big day at Oklahoma, Daniel will be in the thick of it, after a stunning game against Nebraska (33 of 47 passes for 401 yards and 2 touchdowns; 11 rushes for 72 yards and 2 more TDs).
This week: At Oklahoma.
Andre Woodson QB, Kentucky.
A loss at South Carolina dropped him from serious contention.
This week: Louisiana State.
Colt Brennan QB, Hawaii.
He sat out against Charleston Southern and threw five interceptions against Idaho, then left last week's Utah State game with another injury. Hawaii still is undefeated, but Brennan's season had to go just as perfectly.
This week: Tonight at San Jose State.
John David Booty QB, USC.
His basic credential was that USC was undefeated. Stanford took care of that.
This week: Arizona.
