Heisman StatueCONNECTICUT — Here’s a brief look at my top five Heisman Trophy award candidates entering this weekend’s action.

1. Oregon QB Dennis Dixon: He threw four touchdown passes against Arizona State in a 35-23 win.

2. Boston College QB Matt Ryan: He’s still having a great season despite the Eagles’ loss last Saturday night. His performance against Virginia Tech can’t be discounted. He was great in that game.

3. Kentucky QB Andre Woodson: He has completed 80 passes in his last three games for an average of almost 400 yards. His team has lost two in a row through no fault of his own. He is still a great one.

4. Florida QB Tim Tebow: He was 22-of- 27 for 281 yards in a win against Vanderbilt.

5. Hawaii QB Colt Brennan: This senior threw for 425 yards in a 37-point win over New Mexico State for his undefeated team. He threw six touchdown passes and had only one interception. He also had four effective rushes.
