Super Senior TCU QB Trevone Boykin Accounted for an Amazing Six Touchdowns in their 56-37 Victory over SMU on Saturday. Boykin Completed 21 of 30 Passes for 454-Yards and Five Touchdowns and Ran for Another 20-Yard Touchdown when his Receivers were covered.

In this Amazing Game, Boykin also Recorded his Fourth 400-Yard Passing Game of his career. The 454 Passing Yards was his fourth-highest total in TCU History and in this game, Boykin became the only TCU Quarterback to have multiple games of Five Touchdown Passes in a career.
Boykin was Scheduled to play in our All-American Bowl Game, but he was nursing an injury and he did not play.
QUARTERBACK BAKER MAYFIELD – OKLAHOMA #6
Super Junior Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield set an Incredible Single-Game Oklahoma School Record for Total Offense with 572-Yards of Total Offense and is the Most of any Quarterback this Season in the Sooners 52-38 Victory over Tulsa.
In this Incredible Game, Mayfield led an Oklahoma Offensive Attack that Recorded 773-Yards of Total Offense, which is the most Offensive Output since 1988 and the Fourth Highest Offensive Production in Oklahoma Sooner School History.
Mayfield Completed 32-of-38 for a Career-High 487-Yards Passing, which is the Second Highest this season and he rushed for another Career-High 85-Yards on 13 carries, giving him his 572-Yards of Total Offense. Mayfield tied an Oklahoma School Record with Six Total Touchdowns, tied a personal Career-High with Four Touchdown Passes; and set another Career-High with two Rushing Touchdowns.
One of the Mayfield Rushing Touchdowns went for 39-Yards, and that Touchdown Run is the longest carry by a Sooner Back this season. Stats indicate that Mayfield has become the first FBS Player since at least 2000 with at least three Passing Touchdowns and at least one Rushing Touchdown in each of his team’s first three games of a season.
Mayfield is notable for being the first True-Freshman Walk-on to start a BCS Season Opener at Texas Tech, but later Transferred to Oklahoma.
QUARTERBACK BRAD KAAYA – MIAMI #15
Sophomore Super Quarterback Brad Kaaya is the ACC Reigning Rookie of the Year and he was Sensational on Saturday when he Passed for a Career-High 379-Yards in leading the Miami Hurricanes to a 36-33 Overtime Victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers at Sun Life Stadium.

In the Game, Kaaya Completed 25 of 42 Passes for 379-Yards and TWO Touchdowns. Saturday. Though he also threw his first interception of the season, it was his first pick thrown in 110 pass attempts.
RUNNING BACK PLAYER OF THE WEEK
RUNNING BACK LEONARD FOURNETTE – LSU #7
Super LSU RB Leonard Fournette was Incredible as he led the LSU Tigers to a 45-21 Victory over the Auburn Tigers in an SEC Conference Game that the Auburn Tigers could not Tackle him and because of it, he gained 228-Yards on 19 Carries and Scored Three Touchdowns, while Averaging 12-Yards Per Carry.
It was obvious early on in the Game, that Fournette was going to have an Incredible Game. On the First Play of the Game, Fournette Raced 71-Yards down to the Auburn 4-Yard Line, setting up the First LSU Touchdown of the Game.
Last Season, as a True Freshman, Fournette was able to convince most LSU Fans and most NFL Scouts that he might be the Best Player in the Country, but this Year, he has been even more Impressive, because he seems to be even better than we all first thought. Last year, Fournette Faced Eight-Man Defensive Fronts and had No-Respect for the LSU Passing Game. This Year is no Different with LSU Facing Eight-Man Fronts, but the way Fournette Completely Embarrassed a Pretty Outstanding Auburn Defense on Saturday was Unbelievably Incredible.
Fournette has all of the NFL Scouts Drooling Over the Prospects of getting the #1 Pick in The NFL Draft. Fournette is only a Sophomore, but in which ever NFL Draft that he decides To Declare, either in 2016 or 2017, he will become the #1 Overall Pick, because he is Ready to Play and Will Start and Star in his First NFL Game.
FLANKER BACK PLAYER OF THE WEEK
FLANKER BACK JOSH DOCTSON – TCU #9
I watched the TCU and SMU Football Game on Saturday and I have not seen a Better Wide Receiver since watching both of the LSU Wide Reciver Super Freaks of Odell Beckham and Landry in the 2013 Football Season.
