Craig Candeto, QB, Navy
OK, so Roger Staubach he's not. But maybe he's Dee Dowis, who finished sixth in the voting in 1989 for Air Force. In a wide-open race, anything's possible. Candeto has 869 yards and 11 touchdowns for the nation's No. 1-ranked rushing offense. And he still gets to play Notre Dame and Army to help pad his stats.
Kellen Winslow, TE, Miami
Back when he was striking Heisman poses in September, Winslow had the rest of the season to prove himself. The rest of the season arrived Saturday at Blacksburg, Va., and Winslow failed to materialize. Eight catches for 48 yards with a long reception of eight yards won't cut it.
