Last week's winner: It was Kevin Beetch, who not only went a sparkling 6-0, but predicted a final score of 42-17 in the KU-OSU game - only a total of four points off.
Kansas University quarterback Todd Reesing leads a long, impressive list of Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year candidates.
Others worthy of consideration:
Sam Bradford: Oklahoma's quarterback Sam Bradford, a scratch golfer and accomplished basketball player, is the nation's most underrated quarterback.
Michael Crabtree: A freshman for Texas Tech, he has 20 touchdown receptions and 1,707 receiving yards.
Chase Daniel: Having a super year, but the fact the Missouri quarterback has generated more Heisman Trophy hype than Reesing and Bradford is more a function of him having a bigger name coming into the season.
Jordy Nelson: He came to Kansas State as a walk-on, which is hard to believe. He's a super punt return man, a fast and strong receiver, and even mixes in a touchdown pass here and there.
Jamaal Charles: Nobody's talking about the speedy Texas back, but he's bounced back with a great season after a sophomore slump. He averages 6.4 yards a carry and has 15 touchdowns.
Graham Harrell: His numbers (43 touchdown passes, 443.5 yards per game) are outrageous, but some of that can be traced to a system that blows off the pass.
There isn't much to discuss on the Coach of the Year front. Gary Pinkel has had an amazing season with the Tigers, but KU's Mark Mangino can wrap it up with a victory on Saturday, a victory that would make him 36-35, the school's first coach with a winning record since Jack Mitchell.
Now this week's games...
Kansas 31, Iowa State 20: The Cyclones' last four-opponents: Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas State, Colorado. Opponents 121, Iowa State 111. Not bad at all for the rapidly improving Cyclones, who take a two-game winning streak into the game.
Missouri 44, Kansas State 13: What do the oddsmakers know that the rest of us don't? Sure, the game is at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, but Missouri is favored by just seven points, one week after K-State allowed 73 points to Nebraska?
Oklahoma State 45, Baylor 13: T. Boone Pickens, the financial backbone of the OSU athletic department, praised KU athletic director Lew Perkins, whom he referred to as "a good friend" during a halftime interview at last Saturday's game, but that wouldn't stop Perkins from answering with one word if Pickens ever were in the market for a basketball or football coach and asked for permission to talk to either or both of KU's coaches. That one word would be, "No." Bill Self, by the way, never has met Pickens.
Ohio State 21, Michigan 20: Illinois stole some appeal from this game because it would have been some story for Michigan to start the regular season by losing to Appalachian State and finish it by pinning the Buckeyes with their first loss. Not having a shot at thrill actually hurts the Wolverines and helps the Buckeyes enough for them to win at the Big House.
Notre Dame 17, Duke 13: The Fighting Irish do their best work against basketball powerhouses. Duke joins UCLA as the only teams bad enough to lose to Charlie Weis.
Oklahoma 38, Texas Tech 31: Blame the Sooners' explosive offense, not the refs, for the outcome of this game in Lubbock.
