CLEMSON QB TAJH BOYD THREW FIVE TOUCHDOWNS ON SATURDAY!
THE MAX EMFINGER 2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWSLETTER WEEK #6
THE HEISMAN QUARTERBACK CLUB
This week, there are Six Super Quarterbacks who had incredible 200.0 Quarterback Ratings, including Boyd-261.9, Mariota-230.8, Winston-226.6, Petty-203.0, Mettenberger-200.6, and Franklin with a 198.4 Quarterback Rating.
1. QB Tajh Boyd – Clemson – Boyd was sensational again on Saturday as he completed 20 of 27 passes for 455-Yards and Five Touchdowns. The Heisman Trophy hopeful also won his 26th game as a Starting Quarterback. He passed for his 455-Yards and Five Touchdowns in just under three quarters of work as his Tigers beat Syracuse by a 49-14 score to spoil the Syracuse Orangemen debut into the Atlantic Coast Conference. In this game, Senior QB Boyd (6-1, 225, 4.6) from Hampton, Virginia matched his own Clemson School Record in Touchdown Passes in a single game, and he broke his own School Record for passing yards in a single game and surpassed 10,000-Yards of Total Offense in his career. Boyd had a “Mind-Boggling” 261.90 Quarterback Rating in this game
Boyd hit 60 and 42-yard Touchdown Passes to Junior WR Adam Humphries (5-11, 190, 4.45) in the first quarter that helped set the tone for the game and then the Tigers upped the lead to 28-7 when Boyd hit Sophomore TE Stanton Seckinger (6-4, 220, 4.6) in the right corner of the end zone early in the second quarter. Boyd completed the first-half by hitting Junior WR Martavis Bryant (6-5, 200, 4.45) with a 40-yard Touchdown Pass midway through the second quarter for a 35-7 lead.
Boyd had an almost flawless first half against the Syracuse Orangemen and their blitzing defense, as he hit 15 of his first 17 passes for 317-yards and Four Touchdowns as his receivers continued to be able to break free. One thing to keep in mind is that the Clemson Receivers are one of the most talented group of Wide Receivers in the Country. In fact, after the NFL-Type Wide Receivers at LSU, I don’t think that there are that many other Wide Receiver Corps that are better.
With such a talented receiving group, Boyd made it look easy as he hit a wide-open Humphries with Touchdown Passes of 60 and 42-yards and then as he was standing at his own goal line, Boyd hit Junior Super-Star WR Sammy Watkins (6-1, 210, 4.3) in full-stride with a perfect spiral-pass at the 45-yard line, and Watkins (In Photo) easily sprinted the rest of the way for a 91-yard Touchdown, which made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week. “That play really sealed the game for us,” said Watkins, who had four catches for 126-yards. “Tajh did such a great job of getting the ball out to us so quick and so fast.”
“I got guys here who flat just go out there and get it, some of the best skill guys in the country,” said Boyd. “We try to put these guys in the best position possible. We played a pretty complete game and we are getting close to where we want to be.”
2. QB Marcus Mariota – Oregon – Mariota is just a “Real Freak” at Quarterback. In only about two-and a-half quarters of work, Mariota completed 16 of 27 passes for 355-yards and Five Touchdowns, and he also ran for 43 more yards and two Touchdowns, giving him 398-Yards of Total Offense and Seven Touchdowns as the Ducks beat the Colorado Buffs by a 57-16 score. The Ducks had got off to a “Tricky-Start” as the Buffaloes started off with an unbelievable 10-8 lead.
The Buffs had their Home Folsom Field in a real frenzy when they kept things really tight early, but the crowd didn’t like it when Colorado kept going for field goals while the Ducks were piling up the points as Sophomore QB Mariota (6-4, 215, 4.5) from Honolulu, Hawaii hit both Josh Huff and Bralon Addison with two Touchdowns apiece in only two-and-a-half quarters.
The Quarterback that is getting a lot of the early Heisman hype still hasn’t played a full game this season, but he swears he doesn’t mind being a sideline spectator after making quick work of opponents. “There’s three other Quarterbacks behind me and they practice their tails off all week and I think they deserve a chance to play,” Mariota said of his two backups Jeff Locke and Freshman QB Jake Rodrigues (6-3, 218, 4.6).
Mariota then set a school record with 42 points accounted for in the victory and in this game Mariota recorded a tremendous 230.8 Quarterback Rating. Mariota now ranks eighth in the country in passing efficiency after a 5-0 season with a 176.30 Quarterback Rating and ninth in Total Offense with a 339.20 Yard per game average, helping Oregon to a a Total Offense of 630.40-Yards per game average.
Oregon is 5-0 and has scored at least 55 Points in all of their first five games this year under New Head Coach Mark Helfrich, a former Offensive-Coordinator at Colorado, who took over when Coach Chip Kelly left to be the Head Coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.
3. QB Jameis Winston – Florida State – Winston was unbelievable on Saturday as he performed on National Television and proved to the Entire World that he is a bonified and legit Heisman Trophy Candidate as a mere Freshman. Against an undefeated Maryland Team, in Tallahassee, the Seminoles were led by Red-Shirt Freshman “Famous Jameis” Winston (6-4, 220, 4.6) of Bessemer, Alabama. In this game, in front of the entire world, Winston completed 23 of 32 passes for 393-yards and Five Touchdowns and then added another 24-yards rushing, giving him 417-Yards of Total Offense and Five Touchdowns as they beat the Terps by an astonishing 63-0 score. We should have known that something Great was coming when Winston hit 5 of 5 passes for 52-yards in the Seminole opening drive of the game. Winston them finished the game with an incredible 226.6 Quarterback Rating.
The fact that Winston was exceptional once again is becoming less newsworthy by the week. He now has played in three ACC games and has topped 300-yards and Four Touchdowns in each of them. His predecessor, EJ Manuel, did that just once in his career against an ACC team. One of his plays that will go on the Highlight Reel and also into the ESPN Plays of the Week was a play that he somehow got away from what looked like a Sure-Sack with Houdini-Type Escape Skill, rolled-out to the right, and threw a perfect Touchdown Pass to Junior TE Nick O’Leary (6-3, 240, 4.6).
Last week, against Boston College, Winston completed 17 of 27 passes for 330-yards and four Touchdowns; plus he also rushed for 67-yards on 14 carries,; giving him 397-Yards of Total Offense, as he led the Seminoles to a great 48-34 comeback over Boston College. For the 5-0 season, Winston has accounted for 19 Touchdowns.
4. QB Bryce Petty – Baylor – Petty was sensational again as he completed 17 of 25 passes for 347-Yards and two Touchdowns and also rushed for another 23-yards, giving him 370-Yards of Total Offense as the Bears beat West Virginia by a 73-42 score. “I think it’s still funny for people to say that we need to prove something to anybody when we scored our first Touchdown in forty seconds,” said Petty. While playing only one drive into the second half, Petty had one of the Baylor school record-tying eight rushing Touchdowns. The Bears, shining even brighter with their Gold Chrome Helmets, already had 674-yards while scoring on nine of 10 offensive series for a 63-21 lead before he came out of the game. “It’s the right scheme, the right players and everything is working. It’d be hard to beat this offense,” said Petty, who had a fabulous 203.0 Quarterback Rating in the game. With these “Mind-Boggling” STATS, the Heisman Trophy Watch List people are going to have to make a trip to Waco, Texas to see these Baylor Bears play.
Heisman Trophy Candidate Junior RB Lache Seastrunk (5-10, 210, 4.4) from Temple, Texas had his eighth consecutive 100-yard rushing game as he ran 15 times for 172-yards and two Touchdowns, including an 80-Yard Touchdown as the Bears had 28 points in the first quarter for the fourth straight game. The 80-yard Touchdown, of Seastrunk (Also in Photo) made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
“Our players played extremely active and with a lot of intensity and purpose,” said Head Coach Art Briles. “That was our plan to play with purpose early. We decided just to judge the game by the first half, because we felt like we did what we needed in the first half to win the football game.”
Based on the data that is available since 1980, STATS say that Baylor is the only BCS College Football Team to score at least 66 Points in four consecutive games; plus it is the first time that a BCS College Football Team has started off the football seson with four straight games of scoring 66-points or better. Also, no other BCS or FCS team has scored 28 points in the first quarter of any three games in a single season since 1996, according to data available to STATS. Baylor still is one game short of matching the Oklahoma in 2008 with five consecutive games scoring at least 60 points.
5. QB Zach Mettenberger – LSU – Mettenberger is getting better every week than the week before. This past Saturday, against Mississippi State, he completed an incredible 25 of 29 passes for 340-yards and two Touchdowns in leading LSU to a 59-26 win over The Bulldogs in Starkville. This sounds like modest stats, but in reality, the 25 completions was a Career-High, in orchestrating the New “Cam Cameron” Offense to 563-Yards of Total Offense and Eight Touchdowns and the Cam Cameron Coached Mettenberger also had an unbelievable 200.6 Quarterback Rating. After this game, “Mett” ranks Fourth in the Country with a 190.1 Quarterback Rating.
This 86% completion percentage by Mettenberger is the fourth-highest total for an LSU Quarterback in LSU School History in a game with at least 20 attempts. Mettenberger also became only the third LSU Quarterback in School History, and the first since Rohan Davey in 2001, to have 300-yards passing in back-to-back games. The 59 points were the most for the Tigers in an SEC game since scoring 63 against Kentucky in 1997. LSU has scored 30 points or more in all six games, the first time in school history. His 25 completions were also the most by an LSU Quarterback since Rohan Davey completed 31 against Illinois in the 2002 Sugar Bowl.
Mettenberger has been Making Magic on the Football Field and with two back-to-back 300-yard passing games against Georgia and Mississippi State, many feel that he has plunged into the Heisman Trophy Race. Guess who comes to Tiger Stadium on Saturday! If you guessed the Florida Gators, you are right and if The Mett Magic-Man does his stuff again in front of a CBS National Television Audience, then he might have to change his name to Zach Heisenberger. I will always remember when a guy named Joey Theseman changed his name to Joe Theisman and it worked.
6. QB James Franklin – Missouri – Franklin was outstanding for the third straight Saturday as he completed 19 of 28 passes for 278-yards and also used his legs with 12 rushes for another 63-yards, giving him 341-Yards of Total Offense and Four Touchdowns as he led the Tigers to a 51-28 victory over Vanderbilt. Senior Franklin (6-2, 230, 4.5) from Corinth, Texas is a real Freak. Everyone needs to look-out for the Georgia Bulldogs, because Heisman Trophy Candidate Franklin and the Missouri Tigers are coming to town. Look for James Franklin to really make his Heisman Trophy move on Saturday. Aaron Murray and his Bulldog Passing Attack better be ready.
Coach Gary Pinkel installed this Wide-Open Spread Offense and on Saturday, the Tigers and Coach Pinkel won their 95rd game since coming to the school 13 years ago. It’s been two years since James Franklin was an All-Big 12 Quarterback with “Mind-Boggling” statistics and considered to be one of the Best Quarterbacks in the Country and one of the most dangerous Athletic Quarterbacks. But then after an injury-plagued and mostly forgettable Junior Season last year, which was Franklin and The Missouri Tigers first in the SEC, a lot of people forgot about Franklin. If the last three weeks are any indication, Franklin is now back in the Heisman Race.
Against Vanderbilt, Franklin almost had a 200.00 Quarterback Rating, to keep pace with Boyd-261.9, Mariota- 230.8, Winston-226.6, Petty-203.0, and Mettenberger-200.6, as he only missed it by one point with a 198.4 Quarterback Rating.

SPECIAL TOP GUNNERS OF THE WEEK #6
At my Super Elite Top Gun Football Camps, Super Combines, and All-American Bowl Game Classics, lives are sometimes touched and changed forever. I always tell our players to always do their best and never let-up, because they sometimes will never know who is watching them or Scouting them and so they need to be the best that they can be on every single play. “Will my coaches or I remember you for what you did when we crossed your path today or will we never remember you?”
It was July 2010 and I had just rented a Big SUV and was set to take three or four players with me to Florida to my 2010 Super Elite Top Gun Camp. Ronald Martin lived in White Castle, about 10-miles from Plaquemine and I was going to meet him at Plaquemine High School and he was going to leave his car in the parking lot and then ride with me to Florida. Ameer Abdullah lived in Homewood, Alabama which is in North Alabama and I was going to pickup him and a Friend in Mobile, Alabama on my way to Florida. and everything was set to take one car when the phone rang and it was the Head Football Coach at Pineville High School and he had a Running Back named Derek Milton that he wanted to go to my Top Gun Camp, but that he did not have a ride and could not afford to take a Bus. I told him to tell Milton to meet me at the Racetrack by the Baton Rouge Mississippi River Bridge and he could ride with me.
About the same time, Ronald Martin called me back and said that Junior RB Tyre Bracken (5-8, 186, 4.3) wanted to go, but he also needed a ride. I told Martin to bring Bracken to my house and we would take two cars; my car and my rented car and we would leave from my house in Plaquemine.
Odell Beckham (In Top Gun Photo) and Jeremy Hill were two Louisiana High School football players who would meet us in Florida at the Super Elite Top Gun Camp.
Except for Hill, who was already committed to LSU, all Five of the Top Gun Campers, including, Beckham, Martin, Abdullah, Milton, and Bracken, did not have a single scholarship offer when they got to The 2010 Super Elite Top Gun Camp, First Practice. Abdullah played Cornerback and did a 40-Inch Vertical Jump.
Abdullah was also Nicknamed as the next Mini Deion Sanders and was voted as the Skills Defensive MVP; while Beckham and Martin were the Co-Offensive Wide Receiver MVP. Martin did a 42-Inch Vertical Jump and a 4.0 Pro-Shuttle and Beckham and Martin made numerous one-handed catches and were Coached by my good friend and NFL Hall of Fame WR Wes Chandler. Bracken ran the fastest Forty at the Camp when he recorded a 4.33 Forty. Beckham ran a 4.36 Forty and Martin ran a 4.42 Forty. Milton weighed 218 and he did a 37 Vertical Jump and a 4.47 Forty.
1. AP Odell Beckham – LSU – Beckham was sensational last week against Georgia, but the Tigers still fell short as the Bulldogs sealed their 44-41 victory over the Tigers with 1:47 left in the game. In that game, Beckham caught six passes for 118-yards and added another 175-yards with seven Kickoff Returns. These two totals gave him a “Mind-Boggling” Total of 293-All-Purpose Yards.
After such an incredible game against Georgia, it would seem very difficult to be able to have another game that was just as impressive. This past Saturday, Junior WR Beckham (6-0, 190, 4.33) from New Orleans caught nine passes for 179-Yards and Two Touchdowns, including a 14-yard Touchdown pass from Zach Mettenberger in the second quarter and another 33-yard Touchdown in the fourth quarter. When you add the 111-yards that Beckham recorded on his five kickoff returns, it gives Beckham another equally “Mind-Boggling” Total of 290-All-Purpose Yards in the 59-26 victory over Mississippi State at Starkville.
2. AP Ameer Abdullah – Nebraska – Abdullah has been a Super Star for three years, but on Saturday, he was just sensational as he rushed for 225-Yards on 20 carries and caught one pass for another 15-Yards, giving him 240-All-Purpose Yards and Two Touchdowns as he helped the Cornhuskers to beat Illinois by a 39-19 score. If you get your calculator out, you can see that Ameer Abdullah averaged an incredible 11.3-yards per carry and a 11.4 yards per touch.
Abdullah was a Super-Star Return Specialist as a True Freshman, returning one 100-yards for a Touchdown, and then last year, as a Sophomore, Abdullah rushed for 1,137-yards. Junior RB Adbullah (5-8, 190, 4.3) from Homewood, Alabama was producing great this year, but none of his games fell into the Heisman Candidate Category until his game on Saturday. Abdullah pounded the Fighting Illini Defense for a Career-High 225 Yards, at Memorial Stadium. He also ran for a pair of Touchdowns, including a beautiful 43-yard Touchdown in the fourth quarter that featured a really nice cutback in front of the Fighting Illini bench.
3. RB Jeremy Hill – LSU – Hill was sensational last week against Georgia and he came back this week against Mississippi State and he was sensational again for the second straight week. In the game on Saturday in Starkville, Sophomore RB Hill (6-2, 235, 4.5) of Baton Rouge, Louisiana rushed for 157-yards and scored Two Touchdowns, including a 69-Yard Touchdown in the first quarter. He also caught three passes for 13-yards, giving him 170-All-Purpose Yards as the Tigers won by a 59-26 score. The 69-Yard Touchdown made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
4. FS Ronald Martin, Jr – LSU – Martin has had two outstanding games against Georgia (In Photo, defending Justin Scott-Wesley) and Mississippi State after losing his Dad, Ronald Martin, Sr, just before the Auburn game. Against Georgia, Junior FS Martin (6-1, 202, 4.42) of White Castle, Louisiana (about 10-miles from my house) recorded a Career-High seven tackles and then on Saturday, against Mississippi State, he recorded four tackles and two pass-breakups, including the blocked pass of Quarterback Dak Prescott on third down and forcing a Field Goal with 12:01 left in the game. I knew Ronald Martin, Sr and we had been Friends for about five years before he pasted away very unexpectedly!
500-YARD OFFENSIVE CLUB POW PLAYERS
1. QB Connor Halliday – Washington State – Halliday was absolutely incredible on Saturday as he completed 41 of 67 passes for 521-Yards and Three Touchdowns as he led his Cougars to a 44-22 victory over The California Golden Bears in an Air-Raid Game. Jared Goff, the Golden Bears Quarterback was also in Air-Raid Mode as he completed 32 of 58 passes for 489-Yards and Two Touchdowns. In this game, both Halliday and Goff combined for 1,010-yards passing.
400-YARD OFFENSIVE CLUB POW PLAYERS
1. QB Derek Carr – Fresno State – Carr has been sensational all of this season, but he has been Flying Under the Publicity Radar. Carr threw for 419-yards on Saturday and he threw for Five Touchdowns, but this is not that strange at Fresno State, because Carr threw Five Touchdowns in the First game of the season against Rutgers and then he threw Four Touchdowns against Boise State last week and now Five Touchdowns on Saturday in the 61-14 victory over Idaho to keep the Bulldogs at 5-0 for the season.
So on Saturday, Senior QB Carr (6-3, 220, 4.8) from Bakersfield, California completed 37 of 48 passes for 419-yards and Five Touchdowns. Carr also ran for another 12-yards, giving him 431-Yards of Total Offense in the 61-14 victory over Idaho. Sophomore WR Davante Adams (6-2, 212, 4.5) of Palo Alto, California caught 16 of his passes for 185-yards and all three Touchdowns.
350-YARD OFFENSIVE CLUB POW PLAYERS
1. QB Shane Carden – East Carolina – Carden is “On-Fire” as he has put-up his second straight 350+ Passing Game. On Saturday, against Middle Tennessee, Carden completed 43 of 57 passes for 365-Yards and a Touchdown and when you add his two-yards on the ground, it gives him 367-Yards of Total Offense after getting 398-Yards last week against North Carolina. In that North Carolina game, Junior QB Carden (6-2, 220) completed 32 of 47 passes for 376-yards and three Touchdowns as they beat the Tar Heels by a 55-31 score in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This was the first win for East Carolina over North Carolina in almost four decades and with the Middle Tennessee win, it brought the Pirates record to 4-1.
Carden has really been stunning all season as he has completed 154 of 214 passes with a 73 percent completion rate for 1,537-yards and 12 Touchdowns. He’s averaging 307- yards per game through the air and has only thrown four interceptions while leading The Pirates to a great 4-1 record. Carden has been so outstanding that he has been added to the Maxwell Award Watch List as the Top Player in the Country. Joining Carden, as new additions in the Maxwell Award Watch List are Boston College Running back Andre Williams and FSU Freshman Quarterback Jameis Winston.
2. QB Teddy Bridgewater – Louisville – Bridgewater was just another outstanding Heisman Trophy Candidate doing what he does best and that is trying to be the #1 Quarterback in the Country. On Saturday, against Temple, Bridgewater did not waste any time in letting the Owls know what kind of trouble they were going to be in the next Sixty-Minutes. In that next Sixty-Minutes, Bridgewater completed 25 of 35 passes for 348-yards and two Touchdowns. He also ran for two-yards, giving him 350-Yards of Total Offense. On the opening drive, Bridgewater hit Senior TE Ryan Hubbell (6-5, 225, 4.6) with a 36-yard reception that put the Cardinals down to the 5-yard line. Then, he made the Owls go for a fake run, up the middle, and then rolled to his right and hit a Wide-Open Junior TE Gerald Christian (6-3, 265, 4.62) with an easy one-yard Touchdown Pass.
Bridgewater was 7 of 9 for 133 yards and one Touchdown in the quarter, and with a 22-yard field goal by John Wallace, the Cards led 10-0 after the first quarter. It was more of the same in the second quarter. Dominique Brown scored on a two-yard run and then Bridgewater found Eli Wallace for a 15-yard Touchdown to give the Cardinals 325-Yards of Total Offense and a 24-0 lead.
Coach Charlie Strong knows just how NFL ready his Quarterback is at running a Pro-Style Passing Offense. Asked where Bridgewater can improve, he simply said, “Well, there’s one (pass) he didn’t make.” Unfortunately for the Owls, there were 25 he did complete. The only surprise may have been that the final score wasn’t a lot worse. Louisville played Temple in 2006, the Cards won 62-0. Bridgewater tied a Career-High with Five Touchdown passes last season in a 45-17 win over the Owls.
3. QB Keith Price – Washington – Price was outstanding in trying to lead his Huskies to a win over a very talented Standford team, but his great effort fell short as the Cardinal beat them in a thrilling 31-28 loss at Stanford. In this National Television game, Senior QB Price (6-1, 205) from Compton, California completed 33 of 48 passes for 350-Yards and two Touchdowns and one interception. If you watched the game, you saw a great Quarterback who was a great leader and who was making plays with his feet; taking hard hits; and really making the tough plays. I thought he was one of the best Quarterbacks in the Country and I was impressed with his Athleticism against one of the Top Defenses in the Country.-
2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SUPER 10 BACKS & ENDS POW PLAYERS
1. AP Duke Johnson – Miami – Johnson was incredible as a True Freshman last year, but this year, he is even better, if you can visualize that? On Saturday, “The Duke” rushed for 184-yards on 22 carries; ran four kickoffs back for 114-yards; and caught one pass for 27-yards, giving him an “Eye-Popping” 325-All-Purpose Yards in a 45-30 victory over Georgia Tech. Sophomore RB Johnson (5-9, 196, 4.4) from Miami, Florida was one of my True Freshman All-Americans in 2012.
2. AP Ty Montgomery – Stanford – Montgomery was pretty sensational as he returned the Opening Kickoff 99-Yards for a Touchdown; returned another Kickoff for 66-yards, caught three passes for 56-yards, including a 39-Yard Touchdown catch; and rushed for 30 yards, giving him 290-All-Purpose Yards as Stanford were able to beat Washington by a 31-28 score. Junior WR Montgomery (6-2, 212, 4.4) from Tahlequah, Oklahoma is another Gamebreaker for the Cardinal and he had 170-All-Purpose Yards at Half-time.
3. RB Andre Williams – Boston College – Williams was unbelievable in the 48-27 victory over Army on Saturday as he rushed for an amazing 263-Yards on 30 carries and Five Touchdowns. Senior RB Williams (6-0, 227, 4.6) averaged an unbelievable 8.8 Yards Per Carry in the victory.
4. RB Carlos Hyde – Ohio State – Hyde was unstoppable on Saturday as he rushed for 168-yards on 26 carries and caught four passes for another 38-yards, giving him 206-All-Purpose Yards as the Buckeyes edged a very tough Northwestern Team by a 40-30 score. Senior RB Hyde (6-0, 242, 4.56) also scored three Touchdowns in the victory.
5. WR Davante Adams – Fresno State – Adams was unbelievable on Saturday as he was the favorite target of Quarterback Derek Carr who passed for 419-yards and Three Touchdowns. Sophomore WR Adams (6-2, 212, 4.5) of Palo Alto, California caught 16 of his passes for 185-yards and all Three Touchdowns in the 61-14 victory over Idaho.
6. RB Lache Seastrunk Baylor – Seastrunk had another unbelievable game for the Baylor Bears. Junior RB Seastrunk (5-10, 210, 4.4) of Temple, Texas had his eighth consecutive 100-yard rushing game as he ran 15 times for 172-Yards and Two Touchdowns, including an 80-Yard Touchdown as the Bears had 28 points in the first quarter for the fourth game in a row. His 80-Yard Touchdown, made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week.
7. RB Rajion Neal – Tennessee – Neal followed-up his Career-Game last week against South Alabama when he rushed for 169-yards and a Touchdown as he rushed for 148-yards on 28 carries against Georgia. Neal also had 19-yards receiving, giving him 167-All-Purpose Yards, but the Vols lost 34-31 in Overtime at Knoxville. Neal scored Two Touchdowns in the Fourth Quarter on runs of one and seven-yards.
8. AP T.J. Jones – Notre Dame – Jones has been outstanding all season, but in this game 37-34 victory on Saturday over a very tough Arizona State team, Jones was especially Special as he caught eight passes for 135-yards and a Touchdown and returned a punt for another 27-yards, giving him 162-All-Purpose Yards in the victory for the Irish. Senior WR Jones (6-0, 185, 4.45) from Roswell, Georgia has been Flying Under the Publicity Radar all season, but after this game, he will be getting his share in preparation for the NFL Draft.
9. AP Bralon Addison – Oregon – Addison was everywhere last week as he helped the the Ducks beat The Golden Bears by a 55-16 score.

This week, Sophomore WR Addison (5-10, 190, 4.4) of Missouri City, Texas only caught five passes, but two of them went for Touchdowns, including first quarter Touchdowns of 44 and 75-yards. His 75-Yard Touchdown Catch made the ESPE Sweet Sixteen Plays of the Week. He finished with 158-Yards receiving.-
10. WR Jarvis Landry – LSU – Landry has been sensational for three years and he has been unbelievable all of this season as he and Odell Beckham had 100-yards again for the second time this season. Landry and Beckham both made some incredible NFL-Type catches in this game from Zach Mettenberger and he finished with 10 catches for 156-Yards and a Touchdown. Beckham caught six passes for 188-yards and a Touchdown. In the TCU game, Landry caught eight passes for 109-yards and a Touchdown; while Beckham caught five passes for 118-yards.

2013 COLLEGE FOOTBALL SPECIAL DANDY DOZEN DEFENSIVE POW PLAYERS
College Super POW Rules
Must Win Your Game or Unless Two Teams in The Top 10 Are Playing!
1. FS Bradley Roby – Ohio State – Roby was pretty impressive on Saturday in a very physical football game against a Northwestern Football Team that thought that they had every right to win this game in their Home Stadium-Ryan Field. In this game, Junior FS Roby (5-11, 192, 4.45) from Suwanee, Georgia recorded six tackles, including five solo tackles and a blocked punt that he recovered in the End Zone for a Touchdown. His Touchdown was the only Touchdown that the Buckeys scored in the first half, but they finally beat the Wildcats by a 40-30 score.
2. CB Loucheiz Purifoy – Florida – Purifory is a Super Athlete who started off on Offense this season for the Gators, but was moved to Defense. On Saturday, against Arkansas, Purifoy was pretty sensational for a Cornerback as he recorded his first interception and he returned it for a Touchdown; recorded his first career sack; forced a fumble; had three pass breakups to go with four tackles as the Gators beat the Razorbacks by a 30-10 score. This got Purifoy named to the Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week.
3. CB Anthony Jefferson – UCLA – Jefferson was outstanding on Saturday as he recorded seven tackles and two interceptions as the Bruins were pretty pressed in beating a very good Utah Team by a 34-27 score. Junior CB Jefferson (6-1, 184, 4.4) had a “Break-Out” Game as he has been a little limited after suffering a herniated disk a couple seasons ago.
4. CB Lorenzo Doss – Tulane – Doss has been an unbelievable player for two years for the Green Wave and on Saturday, against North Texas, he might have been the best Defensive Player on the field as he recorded two interceptions, including one in the first quarter and then returning another intercepton in the second quarter for a 67-yard Touchdown and gave the Green Wave a 21-7 lead and they finally won by a 24-21 score in a Conference USA game. Sophomore CB Doss (5-11, 170, 4.4) of New Orleans, Louisiana also recorded his third and fourth Interceptions of the season and his eighth and ninth of his two-year career. Doss played in my 2012 All-American Bowl Game Classic.
5. CB Terrance Mitchell – Oregon – Mitchell was outstanding on Defense for the Ducks on Saturday as he was trying to keep pace with the Ducks Offense that scored 57 points in a 57-16 victory over Colorado. In this game, Junior CB Mitchell (6-0, 189, 4.4) recorded six tackles, including five solo tackles; had two interceptions; and one pass breakup in the victory. In 2012, the Ducks led the Nation in interceptions with 26 and they also led the Pac-12 in passes defended, breaking-up 16 passes. Teammate Junior CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (5-10, 190, 4.4) had16 pass-breakups and four interceptions.
6. DE Michael Sam – Missouri – Sam had a truly amazing game two weeks ago against Arkansas State when he recorded three Quarterback Sacks and forced a fumble as he led the Tigers to a 41-19 victory. So it was another outstanding Saturday when he recorded three more Quarterback Sacks in leading the Tigers to a 51-28 victory over Vanderbilt. This is the third straight week that a Mizzou Defensive End has been selected to the College Football Defensive MVP as Junior DE Kony Ealy (6-5, 275) was outstanding three weeks ago for Defensive Coordinator Dave Steckel and for the last two weeks, Senior DE Sam (6-3, 255, 4.7) has been dominating as the Tigers remained undefeated at 5-0. Saturday, Sam recorded two sacks on fourth-down plays in the fourth quarter when the Commodores were trying to score with a late rally.
7. DE/OLB Prince Shembo; 8. ILB Dan Fox; and 9. OLB Jaylon Smith – Notre Dame – These three Former High School Phenoms were pretty sensational on Saturday against Arizona State. In that game, Shembo, Fox, and Smith led a Notre Dame Defense that helped lead the Irish to a 37-34 victory over Arizona State. Senior OLB Shembo (6-2, 258, 4.65) of Charlotte Ardrey Kell, North Carolina recorded seven tackles, including five solo tackles, three tackles for a loss, and three Quarterback Sacks. For the first five games of this season, Shembo (In Photo) played mostly at Linebacker, but in this game against Arizona State, he put his hand on the ground and played more at Defensive End and this made a world of difference to the Irish Defense as it gave Shembo a chance to become the Star.
While True Freshman OLB Smith (6-3, 230, 4.4) of Fort Wayne Bishop Luers, Indiana was playing OLB and he recorded eight tackles, including six solo, and one pass breakup. Remember when Smith was The Indiana Mr Football in the 2012 Season after leading the Bishop Luers Football Team to four straight Indiana Football State Championships. Senior ILB Fox (6-3, 245, 4.7) of Rocky River, Ohio recorded seven tackles, including four solo tackles, and an interception in the victory. Notre Dame Defensive Coordinator Bob Diaco has got to be really pround of these three Super Stars.
10. DE Carl Lawson – Auburn – Lawson was unbelievable for a True Freshman as he recorded a Career-High six tackles, including three and a half tackles for a loss, two Quarterback Sacks and a Quarterback Hurry as the Tigers beat Ole Miss by a 30-22 score. True Freshman DE Lawson (6-2, 256, 4.62) from Alpharetta Milton, Georgia was one of the Top Five Defensive Players in the Country in 2012.
