Bronze Stiff Arm Candidates: Week 1

As with my Top 25 I'm also going to keep you updated on my list of BSA (Heisman) Candidates as the season goes on. The basis for these 23 candidates are from my Heisman Hopefulls column back in January (Refer to Part 1 and Part 2 for further breakdown and information on each player). Originally there were 25 but we've already dropped two going into the season and will likely drop more as the season goes on. Remember a good portion of these stats are inflated due to inferior opponents, also many of these numbers aren't as high as others because some coaches (Mike Stoops - Arizona, Bob Stoops - Oklahoma) were smart enough to take their starters out once the game was in hand, thus stats not inflated as others. So here they are, in alphabetical order your Top 23 Bronze Stiff Arm Watchlist members:
