COLLEGE FOOTBALL '10: 6 players who could prevent Mark Ingram from winning another Heisman

Mark Ingram was the third consecutive sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. Hence, he becomes the third consecutive player who returns with a chance to match Ohio State's Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the coveted bronze statue.

Here are six player who could keep Ingram from winning another — other than his teammate, Trent Richardson, who might steal enough carries from Ingram to keep his numbers down.

Terrelle Pryor, qb, Ohio State. He's been compared to Vince Young since high school, and he could be ready to start playing like the former Texas star.

Ryan Mallett, qb, Arkansas. He has a huge arm and a coach whose offenses always put up big numbers. He'll also have a chance to knock off some marquee teams, most notably No. 1 Alabama.

— Ryan Williams, rb, Virginia Tech. The Hokies are always in the mix for a national championship and they still lean on their running game. Williams is a nice back to lean on.

— Case Keenum, qb, Houston. Barring injury, he'll become the NCAA's career leader in yards passing. He puts up Xbox-like numbers and if the Cougars can push for a BCS bid, it will be impossible for him to get overlooked.

— Kellen Moore, qb, Boise State. Mark this down: If Boise State goes undefeated again, Moore will be a Heisman Trophy finalist. The undersized quarterback — he's about 6-feet tall — threw 39 TD passes and only three picks last year.

— Jake Locker, qb, Washington. Locker is one good year away from being a top-five NFL draft pick. He's a spectacular athlete and if he can lead Washington into Pac-10 contention, he'll make a Toby Gerhart-like Heisman run.
