3. Terrance Broadway
Going into the 2012 season, Louisiana-Lafayette expected sophomore quarterback Terrance Broadway to watch and learn from senior Blaine Gautier. After an early-season injury put Gautier on the sideline, circumstances called Broadway to lead the Ragin Cajuns.
He did, and 2,842 yards, 17 touchdowns, and a bowl victory later, Broadway has proven himself as perhaps the most versatile quarterback in the conference. If he can stay injury free in 2013, the Cajuns may be looking at another bowl appearance.
