Things are starting to get fairly tight between Reggie Bush and Vince Young.
- Reggie Bush, USC-There are some institutional reasons for believing so (Tailback-U, anyone?). Bush had an average game against California, rushing for 82 yards. California really had a nice gameplan to shadow him inside and out. Still has two big games remaining against ranked foes Fresno State and UCLA to spruce up the Heisman resume.
- Vince Young, Texas-Another fine afternoon against roadkill Kansas. Threw four touchdown passes and the Texas offense had 52 points at the half. It's kind of annoying, however, when a quarterback can play "500" out there and not only complete his pass, but have it go for touchdown---twice!
- Matt Leinart, USC-Two rushing touchdowns sealed California's fate on an otherwise challenging afternoon where the Bears defense kept a lot of the Trojans' offensive weapons in check.
- Brady Quinn, Notre Dame-Smashed Navy, throwing another four touchdowns on 71% completions. Fantastic season.
