my guess right now puts it at a three player race:
Manziel- hate to see him achieve Archie Status.... he is good, though.
McCarron- starting QB on team going for 3 straight BCS NC's
Marriota- from what I gather, but to be honest, I haven't watched a single Oregon game this year, to know how good he is. rooting for him to win it over the SEC candidates is almost like rooting for Oregon to undefeated and thus possibly pushing OSU out of a BCS NC spot (though OSU has plenty of work to do on it's own to even stay undefeated)
