Texas' Colt McCoy unanimous in Heisman Trophy poll

October 22, 2008 |  2:24 pm

Texas quarterback Colt McCoy not only retained the No. 1 position this week in the HeismanPundit/Orlando Sentinel Heisman Trophy poll, he was the unanimous choice of all 10 voters.

The top three in the poll were Big 12 quarterbacks, McCoy was joined by No. 2 Sam Bradford of Oklahoma and No. 3 Graham Harrell of Texas Tech.

Florida's Tom Tebow, who won the Heisman Trophy last year, is ranked No. 5. But even he says he's using the vote he gets as a former winner to pick McCoy if the Texas junior continues to dominate.

USC's Mark Sanchez, who was as high as No. 2 one week, is again out of the top 12, despite the Trojans' 69-0 victory Saturday over Washington State.
