PLAYER OF THE YEAR
Darren McFadden RB, Arkansas, Jr.
McFadden entered every game as a marked man. Stop him and you’ll beat Arkansas, coaches preached. Easier said than done. McFadden is big. He’s fast. Oh, and he throws touchdown passes, too.
McFadden is the quintessential one-man gang. He ranked fourth in the nation with 1,725 rushing yards — and he tossed four touchdown passes. He was at his best in games against South Carolina (when he tied the SEC single-game rushing mark with 321 yards and also had a TD pass) and No. 1 LSU (206 yards rushing with three TDs and 34 yards passing with one TD). McFadden, simply, is the best.
