The Case for Crouch

November 26, 2001

Nebraska quarterback Eric Crouch may not have eye-catching
passing numbers, but he's the leading candidate for the Heisman
Trophy because he can run. By rushing for 953 yards and 16
touchdowns in 11 games this fall, Crouch has easily surpassed
those single-season totals of every previous Heisman-winning
quarterback. Here's how Crouch compares with the top runners
among those signal-callers, including Paul Hornung (below).
