7. Louisville, 8. Oklahoma, 9. Texas A&M, 10. FSU
500-YARD OFFENSIVE CLUB POW PLAYERS
1. QB Johnny Manziel – Texas A&M – Manziel was pretty impressive on Saturday as he completed 28 of 38 passes for an amazing 464-yards and five touchdowns and he also rushed for another 98-yards on 14 carries, giving him an incredible 567-Yards of Total Offense in the 49-42 loss to Alabama. So how did the Aggies lose? The Aggies put-up 628-yards, which was the most ever yards given-up by an Alabama Defense and that Crimson Tide Defense gave up 42-points and still won, because the Crimson Tide also had a great Quarterback in A.J. McCarron. As I said last week, Manziel (6-1, 200, 4.5) looked like he was back to his “Normal Super-Star Status” as he directed the Aggie Offense to perfection. Thus, giving the Reigning Heisman Trophy Winner some more great and exciting moments at Kyle Field in front of 87,596 screaming fans and National TV Audience that will be viewed for hours upon hours in helping to decide if Manziel will become the Heisman Trophy winner again. Last week there were 86,600 screaming Aggies.
400-YARD OFFENSIVE CLUB POW PLAYERS
1. QB Marcus Mariota – Oregon – Mariota had another Heisman Trophy-Type Game on Saturday as he recorded for 483 Total Yards and Five Touchdowns in the 59-14 Victory over The SEC Tennessee Volunteers. Mariota completed 23 of 33 passes for 456-yards and ran for another 27-yards, giving him the 483-Yards of Total Offense. Freshman Johnny Mundt, who replaced ailing Junior Tight End Colt Lyerla (6-5, 246), had five catches for 121-yards and two Touchdowns and Senior WR Josh Huff (5-11, 205) added six catches for another 125-yards and a Touchdown. Mariota also finished with a sensational 225.8 Quarterback Rating. Mariota ranks Second in the Country behind Bryce Petty of Baylor University, but Petty has only played in two games. This game on Saturday put Sophomore Mariota (6-4, 220, 4.5) right back into the Heisman Trophy Race where he belongs.
2. QB Sean Mannion – Oregon State – Mannion was sensational on Saturday as he completed 27 of 44 passes for a Career-High 443-Yards in a 51-48 Overtime Victory over Utah. The Junior from Pleasanton, California threw five Touchdowns which tied the Oregon State School Record while his 443-yard game total is the fourth most in School History and the highest total for a Beaver since 2003. Mannion (6-5, 220) currently has 12 Touchdown Passes this season which is tied for the leader in the country. His 1,237 Total Yards is second in the country and he is averaging 404-yards per game in Total Offense.
3. QB Blake Bell – Oklahoma – Bell was recruited out of Kansas to be the Oklahoma Passing Quarterback, but he has not been the Starting Quarterback until this past Saturday against Tulsa. In that game, Bell (6-6, 253) was one of the best Quarterbacks in the Country as he completed 27 of 37 passes for 413-yards and a Touchdown; plus he ran for another 24-yards, giving him 437-Yards of Total Offense in the 51-20 Victory over Tulsa. Bell showed unbelievable poise under pressure, as he completed 12 of 16 third down situations in his first College start as a Junior for the Sooners as they beat a very good Tulsa Team. The Sooners with Bell at the helm, averaged 15.81-yards per play on third down against Tulsa. It’s a staggering number that makes it easy to understand why the Sooners scored a season-high 51 points. The really amazing thing about this game for Bell was that he broke the Oklahoma School Passing Record of Sam Bradford which was 363-Yards. His 82-yard Touchdown Pass to Jaz Reynolds made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
On top of that, Bell had a tremendous 202.4 Quarterback Rating in this game and this was the best Quarterback Rating of an Oklahoma Quarterback since Bradford registered a great 199.9 Quarterback Rating at Baylor in 2008. The great performance of Bell gave Oklahoma plenty of confidence about its passing attack for the rest of the season while ending any controversy about who the Sooner Quarterback will be moving forward. “Those third down situations are very important to pick up,” Coach Bob Stoops said. “They relate to points when you’re picking up third downs, it relates to time on the clock, moving the ball, field position, all of those.”
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SWEET 16 QUARTERBACK POW PLAYERS
1. QB C.J. Brown – Maryland – Brown had another tremendous game as he completed 15 of 28 passes for 277-yards and added another 122-yards rushing giving him an outstanding 399-Yards of Total Offense in leading the Terrapins to a 32-21 victory over U-Conn. In his first game of the season against Florida International, Senior Brown (6-3, 210) completed 14 of 22 passes for 275-yards and two Touchdowns, and rushed for another 30-yards, including Touchdown runs of 31 and 5-yards, giving him 305-Yards of Total Offense in the 47-10 Victory. After three games, Brown has already recorded twelve Touchdowns. A year ago, no Maryland Quarterback accounted for more than 11 Touchdowns all season.
2. QB Connor Halliday – Washington State – Halliday was pretty sensational on Saturday as he led the Mike Leach Coached Cougars to their second straight win in a 48-10 victory over a pretty good Southern Utah team at Pullman. After failing to score an offensive touchdown in an Upset victory of Southern California last weekend, the Cougars probably had their best offensive performance of the Mike Leach Era in this victory. In this game, Halliday, a Junior UCLA Transfer, completed 32 of 41 passes for 383-Yards and five Touchdowns, hitting Sophomore WR Dominique Williams (6-2, 192, 4.45) for three passes for 101-yards and two Touchdowns. The Cougars recorded 464-yards against Southern Utah, an FCS Team. “This is the best day we’ve had in the Coach Leach Offense,” said Halliday. “I hit ten different receivers. It was easy to get them the ball! Everybody was wide open.” Halladay also had an outstanding 191.9 Quarterback Rating.
A Side Note: My Son, Eric, and I were Special Sideline Guests of Coach Mike Leach and the Texas Tech Red Raiders at two different Bowl Games. At one of the Bowl Games, I had the great pleasure of meeting the Parents of Wes Welker. Current Baylor Head Coach Art Briles and California Head Coach Sonny Dykes were on that Texas Tech Red Raider Coaching Staff.
The Washington State Cougars also got a long 72-yard interception return for a touchdown from Senior CB Damante Horton (5-10, 180, 4.4) for the second consecutive game. His 72-yard Interception Return For a Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
3. QB Connor Shaw – South Carolina – Shaw was pretty sensational on Saturday as he completed 21 0f 29 passes for 284-yards and three Touchdowns; plus he also ran for another 84-yards, giving him 368-Yards of Total Offense as he led the Gamecocks to a 35-13 Victory over a very tough Vanderbilt team. Shaw led the Gamecocks to their 13th straight victory at home and are tied with Georgia for the second longest active winning streak in the country. Senior Shaw (6-1, 205) hit Junior WR Nick Jones, (5-8, 174, 4.4), who played in our 2010 All-American Bowl Game Classic, with a 12-yard Touchdown pass in the first quarter; Junior RB Bruce Ellington (5-9, 197, 4.5) with a 26-yard Touchdown in the second quarter; and Sophomore FB Brandon Wilds (6-2, 223) with a 33-yard Touchdown pass in the third quarter. Shaw was very accurate in this game as he was 72.4% on his passing and he recorded a great 188.8 Quarterback Rating.
4. QB Kenny Guiton – Ohio State – Guiton plays Second Team Quarterback behind Braxton Miller who is one of the best Quarterbacks in the Country. So he does not get to play Quarterback very much, but in the game on Saturday against California, Miller got injured, giving Guiton his chance and he took full advantage and played like he was the Ohio State Heisman Trophy Candidate and Super-Star as he completed 21 of 32 passes for 276-yards and an amazing four Touchdowns. Guiton then added another 92-yards rushing, giving him 368-Yards of Total Offense as he lead the Buckeyes to a 52-34 Victory.
Several minutes after the game, in the locker room, Offensive Coordinator Tom Herman put his arm around Guiton and told the Team what a great luxury the Buckeyes had in such a Special Player in Guiton as its backup Quarterback. Later when Coach Herman was asked if he was blown-away by the numbers that Guiton put-up! “No, I wasn’t. I see him play every day and he’s the best in the business at what he does. I do get choked-up, because his story still touches me,” said Coach Herman.
5. QB Nick Marshall – Auburn – Marshall was pretty outstanding on Saturday as he led his Auburn Tigers to a 24-20 victory over Mississippi State. In that game on Saturday, Junior Marshall (6-1, 210) completed 23 of 34 passes for 339-yards. Marshall also rushed for 22-yards, giving him 361-Yards of Total Offense. At Wilcox County High School, Marshall was a Two-Sport Super-Star and in Basketball, Marshall averaged 27.3 points per game as a Senior, after throwing for 2,956-yards and 32 Touchdowns in Football. If you will remember, Marshall set a Georgia High School Record with 103 Career Touchdown Passes. I also had him rated as one of the Top Athletic Quarterbacks in the Country before he Signed with The Georgia Bulldogs. Coming up next for Marshall and the Auburn Tigers will be the LSU Tigers and the interesting thing for all Tiger Fans around the country is a Quarterback Matchup on Saturday of two Former University of Georgia Transfer Quarterbacks and that would be the “M-Guys” of Mettenberger and Marshall.
6. QB Ford Childress – West Virginia – Childress is a Redshirt Freshman Quarterback from Houston, Texas and he started his first College Football Game onn Saturday and completed 25 of 41 passes for 359-Yards and Three Touchdowns in leading the Mountaineers to a 41-7 Victory over Georgia State. Childress is a Former High School Super-Star who was unbelievable as he recorded an impressive 153.8 Quarterback Rating in the victory. Childress looks like he will be the next great Mountaineer Quarterback of the Future.
7. QB Brett Hundley – UCLA – Hundley had another sensational game on Saturday as he completed 16 of 24 passes for 294-yards and Three Touchdowns as he led the Bruins to a Huge 41-21 Victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln. Hundley also rushed for another 61-yards, giving him 355-Yards of Total Offense. The Cornhuskers started off with an 18-point lead before Hundley led a great comeback to Defeat a very good #23 Cornhusker team. Hundley threw a 28-yard Touchdown Pass to Senior WR Shaquelle Evans (6-1, 212, 4.5); a 12-yard Touchdown to Phillip Ruhl; and a 3-yard Touchdown to Nate Lese. Junior RB Jordon James (5-9, 193) ran for another 122-yards to go with 61-yards of Hundley.
When you watch The Redshirt Sophomore Hundley (6-3, 227, 4.5) play, you will realize that he is one of the best Athletic Quarterbacks in the Country. Hundley has great Athleticism and when he breaks out of the pocket, he has great speed to outrun any player on the Defense just as he did in the Pac-12 Championship Game when he ran for 83-yards against a tough Stanford Defense and a 72-yard-Touchdown run against Rice. Hundley also set UCLA School Records in 2012 with 318 Completions; 3,740-yards passing; and 4,095-yards of Total Offense.
8. QB Keith Price – Washington – Price was outstanding on Saturday as he completed 28 of 35 passes for 342-Yards and Two Touchdowns in a 34-24 Victory over Ilinois in Soldier Field with Illinois Hall of Fame and NFL Hall of Fame Linebacker Dick Butkus on the Sidelines in support of his Illini Team. This was a great Team Effort for the Huskies and Coach Steve “Sark” Sarkisian. Price threw for 342-yards and two Touchdowns and Junior Tailback was unstoppable as he ran for a Career-High 208-Yards and the Huskies held off Illinois in the Fourth Quarter to win 34-24 at Soldier Field. Senior Price (6-1, 205) from Compton, California had an Outstanding 180.9 Quarterback Rating. Washington (2-0) collected 615-yards in this game after getting 592-yards and keeping high-powered Boise State without a touchdown in a 38-6 win two weeks ago, but they had to hang on down the stretch. “We had a chance to finish them off,” Price said after the game. “We didn’t do it. We let them crawl back into the game late. We saw a 21-point lead in the third quarter dwindle to seven in the fourth, before winning.” This was their sixth straight loss against ranked opponents.
9. QB Nate Sudfeld -Indiana – Sudfeld had a Career-Game on Saturday against Bowling Green as he completed 17 of 26 passes for 335-Yards and two Touchdowns in a 42-10 victory over the Falcons. Sophomore Sudfeld (6-5, 230) recorded an outstanding 199.0 Quarterback Rating in this game.
10. QB Kolton Browning – Louisiana Monroe – Browning completed a Career-Best 43 of 68 passes for 315-yards for three Touchdowns and rushed for another 19-yards, giving him 334-Yards of Total Offense as the Warhawks stopped a late Wake Forest rally and beat the Demon Deacons 21-19 at Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Senior Browning (6-1, 215) led ULM as they had their third straight 400-yard game on Offense as they piled-up 424-yards and 26 first downs.
11. QB A.J. McCarron – Alabama – McCarron was pretty outstanding in the Huge game with Texas A&M at Kyle Field on Saturday as he completed 20 of 29 passes for a Career-High 334 Yards and Four Touchdowns, which tied his Career-Best for Touchdown Passes in a single game. His 5-yard pass Touchdown Pass to Junior FB Jalston Fowler (6-1, 250) with only 2:28 left to play in the game, put Alabama up 49-35 and proved to be game-winner. On that play, he faked a handoff to the right, looked left, and tossed a short pass to his Fullback Fowler for the Final Touchdown of the Game. McCarron had three other Touchdown passes of 22-yards to Senior WR Kevin Norwood (6-2, 195); 44-yards to Junior WR DeAndrew White (6-0, 190); and 51-yards to Senior WR Kenny Bell (6-1, 180). McCarron is now second on the All-Time list at Alabama for passing yardage as he’s second to my Good Friend Brodie Croyle with 6,400 yards.
12. QB Tommy Rees – Notre Dame – Rees has been outstanding before, but this might be his best game ever for the Irish Quarterback as he completed 20 of 33 passes for 309-Yards and two Touchdowns in the 31-24 victory over Purdue. Junior Rees (6-2, 203) is the Son of my Old Friend, Bill Rees, who was a long-time Recruiting Coordinator for the UCLA Bruins. In this game, Rees hit Freshman WR Davaris Daniels (6-2, 190, 4.45) on both of his Touchdowns, including a beautiful 82-yard Touchdown. Daniels caught eight passes from Rees for 167-yards and a 20.9 Yards Per Catch. This 82-yard Touchdown Pass to Daniels made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
13. QB Blake Bortles – Central Florida – Bortles had one of the greatest games ever as a Quarterback for Central Florida when he led the Knights to a HUGE 34-31 UPSET victory over Penn State. In that game, Bortles completed 20 of 27 passes for 288-yards and three Touchdowns; while rnning for another five-yards, giving him 293-Yards of Total Offense in the victory. In beating Penn State, the Knights got their First Win Ever for the Knights against a Big Ten school. Junior Bortles (6-4, 230) put-up some huge numbers in 2012 when he completed 62.9 percent of his passes for 3,059-yards and 25 Touchdowns. Against Penn State, Bortles led an offense that compiled 507-yards of Total Offense and in the process, Bortles recorded an outstanding 192.9 Quarterback Rating.
14. QB Brendon Key – Cincinnati – Key was able to return to his old starting Quarterback position after losing the starting job to Munchie Legaux after being sidelined with a sore shoulder, limiting him in Pre-Season Camp. The sixth-year Senior was back at the helm after Legaux was lost for the season with an injury. Key (6-4, 233) took full advantange and completed 12 of 14 passes for 277-yards and four Touchdowns in leading the Bearcats to a 66-9 victory over Northwestern State. Key also rushed for another nine-yards, giving him 286-Yards of Total Offense in the victory. In this game, Key had a “Mind-Boggling” 328.7 Quarterback Rating.
15. QB Teddy Bridgewater – Louisville – Bridgewater had two great games, but in his third game against Kentucky, he was able to overcome a shaky start to complete 16 of 28 passes for 250-yards and a 13-yard Touchdown pass to Junior WR DeVante Parker (6-3, 205) just befor Halftime in a 27-13 Victory over Kentucky. Bridgewater also ran for another 35-yards, giving him 285-Yards of Total Offense in the Cardinals third win of the season. Although Bridgewater and the Cards were less dominating than in their first two games, they still outgained the Wildcats 492 to 375 and were able win their third straight Kentucky Governor’s Cup.
16. QB Zach Mettenberger – LSU – Mettenberger was pretty good in the first game of the season against TCU, and in his second game ahainst UAB, he had one of the most impressive games ever for an LSU Quarterback as he completed 16 of 19 passes for 282-Yards and an LSU School Record Five Touchdowns as the the Tigers won by a 56-17 score. In Game #3, against Kent State, Mettenberger (6-5, 235) had another great game as he completed 13 of 18 passes for 264-yards and three Touchdowns, hitting Junior Jarvis Landy (6-0, 195, 4.5) for 21-yards in the first quarter and again for 31-yards in the second quarter. He hit Junior Odell Beckham (6-0, 187, 4.4) for five-yards in the fourth quarter.
Another impressive game by Mettenberger (6-5, 235) is a real boost to his NFL Draft Status. I believe that Mettenberger is much improved from last season and I was especially impressed on a couple of his passes in this game. His 250.4 Quarterback Rating against UAB was also very impressive, but his 295.7 Quarterback Rating in the Kent State victory was even more impressive.
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER 11 BACKS & ENDS POW PLAYERS
1. WR Mike Evans – Texas A&M – Evans had an outstanding first game of the season against Rice and he followed that game with another outstanding game against Sam Houston State, but in the Alabama game on Saturday, Evans was so impressive, his NFL Draft Stock is now probably off the charts. Sophomore Evans (6-5, 225, 4.5) is a huge Wide Receiver who looks like a Tight End and he is an unbelievably huge target for Quarterback Johnny Manziel. In the Alabama game, against the #1 Team in the Country, Evans caught Seven Passes for 279-yards, including an unbelievable 95-Yard Touchdown Catch that made the Alabama Secondary look silly. This 95-yard Touchdown Catch made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
2. AP Bishop Sankey – Washington – Sankey was no less than incredible on Saturday as he rushed for a “Mind-Boggling” 208-yards on 35 carries and added 63-yards on three catches coming out of the backfield, giving him an amazing 271-Yards of Total Offense as the Huskies beat Illinois in a 34-24 Victory in Soldier Field with Illinois Hall of Fame and NFL Hall of Fame Linebacker Dick Butkus on the Sidelines in support of his Illini Team. Junior Sankey (5-10, 210, 4.5) scored once on the ground and one by a pass-catch.
3. AP Jeff Scott – Ole Miss – Scott was unbelievable on Saturday in Austin as he helped lead the Rebels to a 44-23 Victory over the Longhorns in Memorial Stadium. The Longhorns gave up 550-yards against Brigham Young in their first game of the season and then the Horns changed Defensive Coordinators and then gave up 552-Yards to Ole Miss. In this game Scott returned a punt 73-yards for a Touchdown and rushed for a Career-High 164-Yards and caught one pass for six-yards, as he finished with another a Career-High 243-All-Purpose Yards. The punt return for a Touchdown was his second of his career and moved him into fourth on the Ole Miss All-Purpose yardage list with 3,421-All-Purpose Yards List. Scott did these heroics in front of 101,474 Longhorn fans who weren’t very happy. His 73-yard Punt Return For A Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
4. AP Paul James – Rutgers – James had an outstanding game on Saturday as he rushed for 192-yards on 21 carries and scored three Touchdowns. Junior James (6-0, 210, 4.5) also made one catch coming out of the backfield for 30-yards, giving him 222-All-Purpose Yards in their 28-10 victory over Eastern Michigan.
5. AP Tyler Boyd – Pittsburgh – Boyd was outstanding on Saturday as he recorded six catches for 134-yards; rushed twice for 39-yards; and returned one kickoff for 22-yards, giving Freshman Boyd (6-2, 190) 195-All-urpose Yards in the Panthers 49-27 victory over the University of New Mexico.
6. AP De’Anthony Thomas – Oregon – Thomas was outstanding again, as usual, as he rushed for 86-yards, caught one pass for 28-yards, and returned two kickoffs for 58-yards, giving him 172-Yards of Total Offense in the 59-14 victory over Tennessee. Thomas (5-9, 173, 4.3) is a real Super-Star, but on such a great Oregon Team, with players like Quarterback Marcus Mariota (6-4, 220, 4.5) who had another Heisman Trophy-Type Game with 483 Total Yards and Five Touchdowns, it’s sometimes tough getting a lot of publicity.
7. RB Jordan Hall – Ohio State – Hall had an outstanding game on Saturday as he teammed with Quarterback Kenny Guiton in leading the Buckeyes to a 52-34 victory over the California Golden Bears. In this game, Senior Jordan (5-9, 197, 4.5) rushed 168-Yards on 30 carries and scored a career-high three touchdowns in the Victory.
8. AP John Hubert – Kansas State – Hubert had a great day on Saturday as he rushed for 118-yards and caught two passes for another 50-yards, giving him 168-Yards of Total Offense in the 37-7 victory over U-Mass. Hubert (5-7, 190, 4.3) is a Phenomenon who can score on any play in any game. He was over-shadowed a lot by the great performances of Quarterback Collin Klein in 2012, but if the Wildcats are going to do anything in 2013, then Hubert will be the one with the fabulous stars that is doing it.
9. WR Davaris Daniels – Notre Dame – Daniels had an outstanding game for a Freshman as he caught both Touchdowns from Quarterback Tommy Rees. Daniels (6-2, 190, 4.45) also had a beautiful 82-yard Touchdown. In the 31-24 victory over Purdue, Daniels caught eight passes from Rees for 167-Yards and a 20.9 Yards Per Catch. This 82-yard Touchdown Pass to Daniels made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
10. AP Ka’Deem Carey – Arizona – Carey was outstanding for the second straight week. Last week, in the Wildcats 58-13 victory over UNLV, Junior Carey (5-10, 197) finished with 171-Yards on 16 carries and averaged an impressive 10.7 yards per carry. This week, against UTSA, Carey rushed for 128-yards and two Touchdowns as the Wildcats beat the Roadrunners by a 38-13 score. Carey also caught two passes for 33-yards, giving him 161-Yards of Total Offense in the victory.
11. RB Alex Collins – Arkansas – Collins had a unbelievable “Break-Out” Game as he rushed for 172-Yards on 24 carries and scored one Touchdown as the Razorbacks beat Samford last week by a 31-21 score. The Razorbacks won a huge recruiting battle with Miami for the services of True Freshman Collins who was from South Plantation, Florida. This week, Collins rushed 25 times for 115-yards and one touchdown in 24-3 win over Southern Miss and he became the first True Freshman in SEC History and first True Freshman in NCAA since Adrian Peterson in 2004 to begin career with three consecutive 100-yard rushing games. After three games, Collins leads the SEC and ranks Fourth in the Country with 418-rushing yards this season, and his average of 139.9 rushing-yards per game is second in the SEC and eighth Nationally.
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPECIAL ELITE EIGHT DEFENSIVE POW PLAYERS
College Super POW Rules
Must Win Your Game or Unless Two Teams in The Top 10 Are Playing!
1. OLB Anthony Barr – UCLA – Barr is a UCLA All-American Linebacker and on Saturday he led the Bruins in their 41-21 Victory of Nebraska in Lincoln. Senior Barr (6-4, 245, 4.5) led the Bruins as they completely dominated the second-half as he collected a Team-High 11 tackles, including 1.5 tackles for a loss. Barr also forced an amazing three fumbles, which was one of the reasons that the Cornhuskers didn’t score a single point in the second half.
Coming out of High School, I had Barr rated as one of the Top Running Backs in the Country, despite breaking his ankle in his senior season. Barr signed at UCLA to play Running Back, just like his Dad (Tony Brooks) did in College and in the NFL after being Drafted in 1992 NFL Draft. After two years on offense, Barr moved to Defense and with unbelievable Athleticism, has become one of the Top Defensive Players in the Country. Barr is a Potential #1 Draft Choice and will be one of the Top Players Drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft. In 2012, Barr finished second in the country with 13.5 Quarterback Sacks and he also had 21.5 Tackles For a Loss.
2. DE Josh Shirley – Washington – Shirley (6-3, 232) was dominant against Illinois on the road in Soldier Field as he recorded seven tackles, including three quartback sacks in a 33-24 victory. The Huskies came out on top in this game after dropping seven of nine away from home and hadn’t won on the road outside the Pac-12 since beating Syracuse in 2007, but as good as all that sounds, they were hardly content. “In every department there should be improvement,” Junior Shirley said. “The sky’s the limit for this team. We just have to go back to the drawing board on Monday and fix the corrections next week.”
3. DT Ego Ferguson – LSU – Ferguson had a career-games for the Tigers in their 45-13 Victory over Kent State as he recorded eight tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss and a sack. Ferguson was a High School Super-Star and he went to Hargrave Prep School. He is still a Super-Star, but he has been playing behind some highly rated LSU Defensive Linemen who were Drafted in the 2013 NFL Draft, but now it’s his turn to be the SEC Super Star. In this game, Ferguson set a Career-High Record Tackles in his first-year as a starter. In leading the Tigers in Tackles, Junior Ferguson (6-3, 308, 4.9) anchored an LSU Defense that held Kent State to just 58 rushing-yards and 248-yards of total offense. The Tigers also held Kent State to 4 of 14 on third-down conversions and just 1.8 yards per rush.

OLB Ryan Shazier – Ohio State – Shazier had another fabulous game on Saturday as he led the Buckeyes Defense with 12 tackles, including 10 solo tackles; plus he recorded one quarterback sack for a minus nine-yards and he one forced a fumble as the Bucks beat California 52-34. Junior Shazier (6-2, 225, 4.6) was the Leader of an Ohio State Defense that held the California passing offense, which was ranked first in the Country entering their game on Saturday to 100-yards below their season average. Shazier is a returning All-Big-Ten Linebacker who had 115 tackles in 2012 and 17 of those tackles were for a loss. Shazier is on the Butkus Award and Lombardi Award watch lists after finishing among the Top 10 in the Big-Ten in five different statistical categories last season.

CB Dexter McDougle – Maryland – McDougle had an outstanding game as he recorded a personal-best two interceptions, including one hat he returned 49-yards for a touchdown to essentially seal the Terrapins 32-21 Victory over University of Connecticut in the Homecoming of Randy Edsall. It was te first Maryland pick-six since November 2011. Senior McDougle (5-11, 195) also led the team with seven solo tackles. Maryland now has an amazing six total interceptions on the season, two more than all of 2012. But there was some bad news, as McDougle left the game in the fourth quarter with an apparent shoulder injury.
6. CB Kip Daily – Kansas State – Daily was pretty sensational on Saturday as he grabbed two Interceptions in the 37-7 Victory over U-Mass. The Senior Cornerback Daily (5-11, 180, 4.3) picked-off his first interception in the first quarter against U-Mass and returned it 38-yards for the first touchdown of the game. Daily picked off his second interception on a fourth down late in the third quarter, ensuring KSU would have no trouble in a 37-7 win over the Minutemen.

8. CB Blake Countess – Michigan – Countess is coming off an ACL injury which kept him out of the 2012 season, but this Red-shirt Sophomore had an outstanding game last week against Notre Dame when he recorded two interceptions, including one that sealed the victory for the Wolverines.
