Cade Klubnik, Clemson quarterback

Is it attainable for a 2-of-4 passing efficiency to register extra emphatically than Klubnik’s did in opposition to Syracuse? The freshman entered in aid of DJ Uigalelei through the third quarter of Clemson’s 27-21 win and quarterbacked the Tigers again from a 21-10 deficit. He did not do a lot, totaling simply 19 yards passing and 15 yards dashing, however the truth that Clemson’s struggling offense out of the blue stopped turning the ball over and started scoring when he entered is fascinating. Nonetheless, coach Dabo Swinney insists there isn’t any quarterback controversy and Uiagalelei stays the No. 1 possibility forward of the previous five-star prospect Klubnik.

Can the Tigers win a nationwide title with Uiagalelei, although? He is improved since final season, however his lackluster exhibiting in opposition to Syracuse underscored the numerous lingering imperfections. Swinney turned to him in a second of want and the crew responded properly, so Klubnik is formally within the image now even when he is not the starter. It may be troublesome for Swinney to place that toothpaste again within the tube. If Uiagalelei struggles on the highway in opposition to a stable Notre Dame protection subsequent week, Klubnik might discover himself with excess of 4 cross makes an attempt in opposition to the Combating Irish. It was a restricted pattern dimension, certain, however with playmaking talents like this, maybe Klubnik must be getting common taking part in time no matter Uiagalaelei’s efficiency.

Kendre Miller, TCU operating again

It took Miller seven video games to surpass the variety of dashing yards he amassed in 10 final season because the junior operating again racked up a season-high 153 yards in TCU’s 38-28 win over Kansas State. Each of Miller’s landing runs got here within the second half because the Horned Frogs accomplished their rally from an early 28-10 deficit. 

Miller’s workload has steadily elevated all season, culminating with back-to-back video games of over 20 carries carries and greater than 100 yards in massive wins the previous two weeks. Miller has scored at the least one dashing landing in each sport throughout TCU’s 7-0 begin, and has seven touchdowns over the previous 4 video games. Not unhealthy for a prospect who was considered a three-star athlete and ranked among the many lowest gamers TCU signed within the Class of 2020.

Bo Nix, Oregon quarterback

Since Oregon’s season-opening loss to Georgia, “good Bo” has been the one model of Oregon quarterback Bo Nix that we have seen. The ex-Auburn signal-caller developed a fame over three seasons within the SEC for his mercurial play with catastrophic lows typically following highlight-reel throws or artistic runs. However in reuniting with Oregon offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham, who was his offensive coordinator at Auburn as a freshman, Nix has rediscovered the mojo that made him so promising as a freshman.

He led the Geese with 5 passing touchdowns in a 45-30 win over UCLA on Saturday in a monumental Pac-12 showdown. Now, Oregon is within the driver’s seat of the league and Nix might discover himself taking part in in greater video games for Oregon than he ever did at Auburn because the Geese attempt to clinch a spot within the Pac-12 title sport together with a New 12 months’s Six bowl look. With 17 touchdowns and simply three interceptions, Nix’s 165.9 quarterback score is greater than 35 factors larger than it was for his finest season at Auburn.

Jason Taylor II, Oklahoma State security

Oklahoma State ranks 117th nationally in complete protection, a far cry from final season’s fifth-ranked unit which keyed the Cowboys’ 12-2 season. However the protection got here up with massive performs when it mattered most in a 41-34 victory over Texas final week, and there was no greater hero than Jason Taylor II. The senior security picked off Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers twice and recorded a game-high 9 tackles.

Taylor learn Ewers’ eyes all the way in which on a crucial fourth-and-8 play late within the fourth quarter and ran from the center of the sphere to drag down a crucial interception that helped cement the end result. He was injured whereas awkwardly flipping out of bounds, which made for a tough ending to an in any other case memorable efficiency.

John Torchio, Wisconsin security

In keeping with Torchio, he performed like *crap* in Wisconsin’s 35-24 win over Purdue. Even so, he received Huge Ten Defensive Participant of the Week honors after selecting off two passes and operating one in every of them again 31 yards for a landing. The pick-six put the Badgers forward 14-0, and his second one arrange a fast Wisconsin landing that made it 28-3 early within the third quarter.

Determining this Wisconsin crew is sort of unattainable, however in two of three video games to date underneath interim coach Jim Leonhard, the protection has seemed like its previous self.
