BUZZ: Florida State and North Carolina haven't had 1,000-yard rushers since the turn of the century - and won't this season, either. North Carolina also hasn't had a 3,000-yard passer in that span, and that's not going to happen this season, either. FSU and Miami have quarterbacks who should reach the 3,000-yard plateau this season, but don't expect a 1,000-yard receiver at either school simply because the receiving corps are so deep that neither is going to have a 75-/80-catch guy.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RUSHERS: Georgia Tech RB Anthony Allen, Boston College RB Montel Harris, Georgia Tech QB Josh Nesbitt, Virginia Tech RB Ryan Williams.
PROJECTED 3,000-YARD PASSERS: Miami's Jacory Harris, FSU's Christian Ponder.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS: None.
BUZZ: The Big East didn't have any 3,000-yard passers last season, but if Cincinnati's Zach Collaros can stay healthy, he should reach that plateau this season. Pitt's Jonathan Baldwin was a 1,000-yard receiver last season, but he could have problems reaching that level again because the Panthers will be breaking in a new quarterback. WVU's Noel Devine has increased his yardage total each season on campus, putting him in line for a 1,500-yard season this fall.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RUSHERS: West Virginia RB Noel Devine, Pittsburgh RB Dion Lewis, Connecticut RB Jordan Todman.
PROJECTED 3,000-YARD PASSERS: Cincinnati's Zach Collaros.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS: Cincinnati's Armon Binns, Rutgers' Mohamed Sanu.
BUZZ: Notre Dame had a 3,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard receiver, but Jimmy Clausen and Golden Tate turned pro early. No matter: Dayne Crist and Michael Floyd should reach those plateaus this season. And it wouldn't be a surprise if Navy had two 1,000-yard rushers.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RUSHERS: Navy QB Ricky Dobbs, Navy FB Vince Murray.
PROJECTED 3,000-YARD PASSERS: Notre Dame's Dayne Crist.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS: Notre Dame's Michael Floyd.
BUZZ: Most of the league's big-number guys are gone, especially at quarterback. A lot of MAC quarterbacks have to prove themselves this fall.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RUSHERS: Temple RB Bernard Pierce, Northern Illinois RB Chad Spann.
PROJECTED 3,000-YARD PASSERS: None.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS: Toledo's Eric Page, Miami's Armand Robinson.
BUZZ: BYU's Harvey Unga and Utah's Eddie Wide were 1,000-yard rushers last season. But Unga may not play this fall and Wide is going to have to share time with Matt Asiata, which means this league could be devoid of 1,000-yard rushers. TCU almost certainly will lead the league in rushing, but the Horned Frogs are going to use a committee approach at tailback. Wyoming is an offense to keep an eye on this season. The Cowboys are going into their second season under Dave Christensen, who oversaw some powerful offenses as Missouri's coordinator. BYU won't decide on a quarterback until fall drills, but it's a good bet that the new starter - replacing Max Hall - will have good numbers.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RUSHERS: None.
PROJECTED 3,000-YARD PASSERS: Wyoming's Austyn Carta-Samuels, BYU's Jake Heaps (or whomever wins the job), San Diego State's Ryan Lindley, Utah's Jordan Wynn.
PROJECTED 1,000-YARD RECEIVERS: San Diego State's Vincent Brown, Wyoming's David Leonard.
