Three other PAC-10 players are on the, including California junior RB Jahvid Best, Oregon senior RB LaGarrette Blount, and USC's senior DB Taylor Mays. Another upcoming Beaver opponent, Cincinnati's senior WR Mardy Gilyard, is also on the list. The winner is selected by a vote of the Bowl Subdivision head coaches.

Last year's winner, Texas QB Colt McCoy, is one of six players returning from last year's list.
