don’t know how to be much more efficient than 407.7 yards per game, 3.6 TDs per game and 72 percent completions.

But Bradford, Oklahoma State’s Zac Robinson, Texas’ Colt McCoy and Missouri’s Chase Daniel are, according to the time-honored passer rating used by the NCAA.

In the last 10 years, seven Big 12 quarterbacks have finished in the top four of Heisman voting, including winners Eric Crouch (Nebraska 2001) and Jason White (OU 2003).

Kansas State’s Michael Bishop placed second in 1998, OU’s Josh Heupel placed second in 2000, White was third in 2004, Texas’ Vince Young was second in 2005 and Missouri’s Daniel was fourth in 2007.

Now here comes a very special night in November 2008, with the possibility of a Heisman Trophy and a Big 12 title and a Big Bowl berth all rolled into one big showdown on Owen Field.
