Carter's Top 50 NCAA Football Quarterbacks Of The 2009 Season

Case Keenum has proven all season long that he deserves to be considered as the best quarterback in the nation. Despite the less Heisman votes that he could be getting this season, he still gets at least my vote for the Quarterback of the Year for these reasons:

412 completions (most in FBS)

4,922 passing yards (most in FBS)
38 touchdown passes (T-most in FBS)
Only six interceptions
70.5 completion percentage (3rd in FBS)
8.43 yards per passing attempt (T-13th in FBS)
160.76 QB rating (5th in FBS)
Three 500-yards passing games
Has thrown for at least 320 yards in all but one game
