ED BARKOWITZ Texas' Colt McCoy, despite his showing in the Big 12 title game, is the better of the two quarterbacks and his experience in tight games will be the difference. The Longhorns will gain redemption from being snubbed for a shot at the 2008 title by winning outright. Texas, 24-17. CHUCK BAUSMAN Alabama has survived and thrived in the rugged SEC. Texas just hasn't played the same quality of opponent. You know how Heisman Trophy winners usually bomb in their bowl games?

In listening to Penn State players talk this week about Alabama's running game, they made it clear they were treating running back Trent Richardson with the same respect as 2009 Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram. That will come in handy for Saturday night's game between the two prestigious programs. Ingram is likely out; coach Nick Saban said Wednesday he was "probably not going to be ready to play" against the 18th-ranked Nittany Lions as he continues to recover from left knee surgery.

Brown is still available in three out of four leagues; but following his dominant, 30-carry performance against the Raiders, he'll be a hot waiver-wire target this week. Tavon Austin, WR, Rams. After being a nonfactor over his last seven games, and forced to labor without Sam Bradford at the controls, Austin was discarded in many leagues.

Because someone eventually has to strike that pose. Just don't ask us for a definitive who at this stage. That's what StiffArmTrophy.com tries to do. Each week, it polls 60 actual Heisman voters, from 35 states. What that means exactly, not even Beano Cook knows. But it's a place to start, if nothing else. A week ago, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor had retaken a slight lead on Michigan QB Denard Robinson. Boise QB Kellen Moore was third, followed by Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez.

There will be no 2005 Heisman Trophy winner now that Reggie Bush has returned the award from that year. The head of the Heisman Trophy Trust said yesterday the award will be vacated. Bush announced Tuesday he would forfeit the trophy he won with Southern California. In June, the NCAA ruled him ineligible for that season for receiving improper benefits. The Heisman Trophy Trust requires players to be in good standing with the NCAA to be eligible for college football's highest honor.

THE BEST Mark Ingram, Alabama Size: 5-9 1/4, 215. 40 time: 4.62. Projected round: 1 Mayock: "Ingram's a warrior with just an incredibly aggressive running style, and he will block. He can be a true three-down back if there is such a thing in today's NFL. " THE RISER Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech Size: 5-9 1/2, 212. 40 time: 4.59. Projected round: 2 Mayock: "He's my No. 2-rated running back behind Ingram. His main issue is durability. When healthy, you're talking about a 212-pound back with tremendous lateral cutting ability and explosion, who's big enough and strong enough to lower his pad level and push the pile.

SCOUTING REPORT Cedric Benson, Cincinnati: He celebrated his second consecutive 1,000-yard season with an arrest in July for misdemeanor assault, his fourth pinch as a pro. Jahvid Best, Detroit: Had five touchdowns in the first two weeks last year and just one the rest of the season. Figures to get plenty of chances as the Lions' best option, and if his turf toe (or any other ailment) comes up, former Eagle Jerome Harrison is backing him up. LeGarrette Blount, Tampa Bay: Already a decent option as a No. 2 back, Blount's stock will rise if he can handle the third-down duties the Bucs are throwing at him this preseason.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones might miss the rest of the season because of a neck injury. Coach Wade Phillips said yesterday that Jones, who was injured early in the 20-13 loss at Pittsburgh, has a "herniated disk, maybe two" and will definitely miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants. "Our people don't think it's career threatening or anything else that he would have to be operated on or anything like that," Phillips said. "But it is something that might put him out this year.

The Green Bay Packers, who have been seeking to sign free-agent wide receiver Andre Rison, were reported to be close to completing a trade for Rison's former roommate at Michigan State, receiver Mark Ingram. The Milwaukee Journal quoted Packers general manager Ron Wolf as saying Green Bay was working on a trade to get Ingram from the Miami Dolphins. The Journal said it was not known what players or draft choices might be involved in such a trade. "It's close, but you hate to say anything about it until it's completed," Wolf said.

When it comes to fantasy drafting, we all have regrets, right? Seriously, who thought Devonta Freeman would be a rushing beast? Didn't we all know that Larry Fitzgerald's best days were far behind him? Surely all those offseason distractions would cast a pall over Tom Brady's season. . . Yeah, not so much. That's right, friends. It's time for our semi-annual exercise in self-flagellation, when we reflect back two short months on what could have been had we made all the right moves during our preseason draft.

From Duce Staley to Brian Westbrook to LeSean McCoy, the Eagles went 17 seasons with a top running back who was drafted and developed by the team. Westbrook was ready to replace Staley, and McCoy apprenticed behind Westbrook before taking the job. Now the Eagles must replace McCoy. With McCoy's Eagles career coming to a close when a pending trade to Buffalo is processed Tuesday, the Eagles will likely look to free agency or the draft to fill his sizable void. The Eagles have three running backs under contract for 2015: Darren Sproles, Kenjon Barner, and Matthew Tucker.

I don't spend a lot of time regretting decisions I've made in life, mostly because there's nothing I can do about them now. Still, I regret targeting Nick Foles ahead of Andrew Luck in my drafts this year. And though Foles hasn't been a bust by any stretch, I don't think this mistake is going to end so well for me. When it comes to fantasy drafting, most of us have regrets, don't we? Seriously, who thought DeMarco Murray would be a record-breaking beast? And weren't most so-called experts convinced that Antonio Gates was all washed up?

It's the time of year when fantasy enthusiasts obsess over draft order and which players will be available when the time comes to make that fateful first-round pick. Jamaal or Shady? Peyton or Brees? Bud or Miller? But as important as your initial pick can be, it pales in comparison to the handful of selections you'll make - or miss - several rounds later. Who are this year's hidden gems? Let's take a look at my sleeper picks, broken down by position. (Note: ADP, or "average draft position," indicates where the player is typically being selected within his position.

A LOT has been said about Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham and the Saints' receiving corps coming to town tonight, but not as much has been said about New Orleans' running backs, who have the ability to change the course of a game in an instance. Unlike the Eagles, who have a true starting running back in LeSean McCoy, the Saints' combination of running backs features Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles, though, as of late yesterday, not Pierre Thomas, who was ruled out with a back injury. Each comes with a different style, a challenge many on the Eagles defense are looking forward to tonight.

STOPPING THE Packers this week is largely about stopping Eddie Lacy. Seneca Wallace is a veteran quarterback, and he'll be better with some time to prepare than he was when he was thrown into Green Bay's Monday night home loss to the Bears. But Wallace's arm shouldn't beat you, not if Nick Foles and the Eagles' offense are even half as impressive as they were Sunday at Oakland. No, for the Packers to win Sunday, it sure seems Lacy and the running game will have to carry the load.

This time of year, fantasy enthusiasts tend to obsess over their first-round draft picks. Do you go with Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, or Ray Rice with the top overall pick? How early should you jump on Aaron Rodgers and Calvin Johnson? Is it still funny to claim you're taking a kicker with your first pick? (Answer: For the love of all things sacred, no . Please, stop!) While these decisions are important, you'd be better served expending more mental energy on the middle and later rounds, where championship fantasy rosters are built.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama's Trent Richardson is eager to show what he can do against No. 1 Louisiana State. Not because Saturday night's showdown is the type of game that serves as a showcase for the Heisman Trophy candidate. The star tailback for the No. 2 Crimson Tide said it's because he was injured and didn't play much against the Tigers in 2010. "This game means a lot to me because I didn't get to play in it last year except for about one quarter," Richardson said. "So I really can't wait to showcase what a healthy Trent can do in this game.
