1. Texas QB Colt McCoy
The gunslinger mentality McCoy displayed in 2008 has returned and the Texas offense is humming as a result. His performance on Thanksgiving night was one of the most memorable moments of the season. McCoy gashed Texas A&M's defense by air and on the ground, throwing for 304 yards and four touchdowns and rushing for 175 yards and another score. McCoy and the Longhorns are one win away from a trip to Pasadena for the BCS title game, and a strong showing against Nebraska in the Big 12 title game could earn McCoy the Heisman Trophy.
