1. Oklahoma State The Terrific Trio: QB Zac Robinson, TB Kendall Hunter, WR Dez Bryant.
The buzz: Robinson isn't the typical pro-style, drop-back quarterback; instead, he's a great fit for the Cowboys' offense. He threw for 3,064 yards and 25 touchdowns last season and also ran for 562 yards and eight scores. Hunter is a little guy (5 feet 8/190 pounds) who has good speed and is tougher than he looks; he ran for 1,555 yards and 16 touchdowns in '08. We've saved the best for last: Bryant is the best wide receiver in the nation. He's a big target (6-2/215) who really can move. He had 87 receptions for 1,480 yards and 19 touchdowns last season; best of all, he averaged 17 yards per catch. Bryant can beat you deep. He can outjump you. And he can take a short slant pass and sprint 65 yards for a score. There are a few reasons Oklahoma State should average 40 points a game this season, and these three are the biggest.
Other teams to be reconized were No. 5 BYU with QB Max Hall, RB Harvey Unga and TE Dennis Pitta; No. 4 UCLA with DT Brian Price, LB Reggie Carter and CB Alterraun Verner; No. 3 Oklahoma with QB Sam Bradford, RB DeMarco Murray and TE Jermaine Gresham and No. 2 Florida with DE Carlos Dunlap, LB Brandon Spikes and CB Joe Haden
