This week, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron is listed No. 6 in the running. That's down three spots from where he was a week ago after he threw for a career-high 306 yards and four touchdowns in a 44-13 victory at Tennessee. Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein continues to be the strong front-runner, getting 10 of 11 first-place votes and finishing with 31 points. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o is a distant second. USC wide receiver Marqise Lee, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller and West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith now rank above McCarron.
