The five non-BCS conferences and 75 percent of the independents are differentiated from the Big Six in virtually every other facet, so it only makes sense the best players from this subdivision-subdivision have an award for its best player. Just as fitting is for this honor to bear the name of the last player from one of these universities to win college football’s top honor, 1990 Heisman winner and BYU quarterback Ty Detmer. SaturdayBlitz.com will track this completely exclusive field’s progress throughout the season.
Here is my week two ballot based on game performance. Feel free to chime in with who you would have voted for based on last weeks performance...
#1 Kolton Browning, ULM
412 yards passing, 69 yards rushing and the game winning touchdown in overtime over Arkansas. Not bad for a day of work.
#2 Chuckie Keeton, Utah State
Led his team to an OT victory over Utah and passed for 216 yards and 2 TD while rushing for 86.
#3 Brent Leonard, ULM
Help Kolton Browning and the crew pull off the upset of Arkansas. Hauled in 11 passes for 112 yards and caught a TD pass with 47 seconds left to put the game into overtime.
