3. Penn State BUZZ: QB Daryll Clark emerged as a playmaker last season, running for 10 TDs and passing for 2,592 yards and 19 touchdowns. RB Evan Royster ran for 1,256 yards and 12 scores in 2008, and there is good depth at running back, too.
4. Florida BUZZ:Tim Tebow has a chance to go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks in history; he has thrown for 62 touchdowns (against just 10 interceptions) and run for 35 TDs in the past two seasons. While there is no true feature back, sophomores Jeffery Demps and Chris Rainey combined for 1,257 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.
5. Ole Miss BUZZ:Jevan Snead, who began his career at Texas, is the best SEC quarterback not named "Tebow." And there is a three-headed tailback led by sophomore Brandon Bolden.
6. Georgia Tech BUZZ: QB Josh Nesbitt has a ways to go as a passer, but he is a great fit as the decision-maker in the triple-option offense. He ran for 693 yards and seven touchdowns last season. RB Jonathan Dwyer is coming off a 1,395-yard, 12-touchdown season, and RB Roddy Jones ran for 690 yards and four scores.
7. California BUZZ:Jahvid Best is the best running back in the nation. Backup Shane Vereen probably could start for 75 percent of the schools in the country. There is a lot of pressure on QB Kevin Riley to step up his game.
8. Oregon BUZZ: QB Jeremiah Masoli played well down the stretch last season. He needs to develop into a better passer this season. RB LeGarrette Blount ran for 1,002 yards and 17 touchdowns last season, when he shared time. This season, he will be the starter and likely average four or five more carries per game.
9. BYU BUZZ: QB Max Hall has thrown for 7,805 yards and 61 touchdowns the past two seasons. RB Harvey Unga is a threat as a runner (1,132 yards, 11 TDs) and a receiver (42 receptions, 309 yards, four scores), as he proved last season.
10. Nevada BUZZ: QB Colin Kaepernick has run for 1,723 yards and 23 touchdowns and thrown for 5,024 yards and 41 scores the past two seasons. RB Vai Taua ran for 1,521 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2008, one season after RB Luke Lippincott ran for 1,420 yards and 15 scores. Lippincott, who missed all but two games last season, will back up Taua this season.
