BYU's Doman Called Heisman Contender

PROVO, UTAH -- has listed BYU quarterback Brandon Doman as one of the top ten contenders for college football's highest honor, the Heisman trophy. Taking advantage of the attention, the University has started promoting his contention, calling him "The Domanator" and producing a new poster featuring Doman.

But regardless of the promotion, its Doman's on-field performance that has led to his inclusion on ESPN's list. Behind Doman, the Cougars have won five straight games -- two last season and the first three this season. That record propelled the team once again to the top 25 in the polls, and this past week BYU reached 20th place for the first time since 1999. To date this season, Doman has thrown for 780 yards, completed 68% of his passes and hasn't yet thrown an interception.

But BYU, and Doman, doesn't face a particularly difficult schedule, making his case for the Heisman weak. The only team on BYU's scheduled that is ranked in the top 25 was Mississippi State, and BYU's game against them was cancelled following the terrorist attacks September 11th. Today BYU was able to reschedule the game for December 1st.

Doman, who is married and a returned missionary, is taking the attention in stride, "It's an honor to be mentioned with the Heisman Trophy," he said. But he also says that the Heisman is "a little far out in my thinking. I just try to concentrate on our next game."
