Why he could win: He passed for 3,528 yards and 39 touchdowns last season and returns to the best wide receiver group in college football.
Why he won't: It's always tough as the prohibitive favorite. Every mistake or average performance gets magnified.
Why he could win: He won't have to share the spotlight with Russell Wilson and is a touchdown machine (he scored 39 TDs last season).
Why he won't: A new quarterback and new offensive coordinator could take time to click. Plus, defenses will stack the line to try to stop him.
Why he could win: He's the best running back in the best conference on a team that has a chance to be really good this season.
Why he won't win: He suffered a torn ACL midway through last season. Can he stay healthy and regain his form?
Why he could win: Dual-threat quarterback should put up big numbers and highlight plays. He will get lots of attention if Michigan is as good as advertised.
Why he won't win: Faces Alabama in the season opener and finishes at Ohio State with a trip to Nebraska sandwiched in between.
Why he could win: He passed for 4,385 yards and 31 TDs in 2011 and should pile up impressive statistics again in Dana Holgorsen's pass-happy offense.
Why he won't win: A move to the Big 12 will be an adjustment. He also doesn't have the same national profile as Barkley or Ball.
