1) Collin Klein: QB, Kansas State (Last Week, No. 1)
It wasn't one of his monster statistical performances like we've come to expect, but the fact is that Klein continues to navigate the Wildcats to the BCS title game. He threw for 245 yards and added 64 yards rushing and a touchdown in K-State's 44-30 victory over No. 24 Oklahoma State.
2) Kenjon Barner: RB, Oregon (Last Week, Unranked)
Barner finally got to play more than two quarters in a game, and as a result, he returns to our rankings after one week off. Barner was simply sensational in setting a few big time records on Saturday. His 321 yards set the Oregon school record, and were the most ever allowed by USC. Oh, and he scored five touchdowns. Simply amazing.
3) Johnny Manziel: QB, Texas A&M (Last Week, No. 4)
Johnny Football moves up one spot after another sensational game. He threw for 311 yards and ran for 129 yards and two touchdowns as Texas A&M knocked off No. 16 Mississippi State 38-13. The Aggies gained 693 yards on the day.
4) A.J. McCarron: QB, Alabama (Last Week, No. 3)
The numbers were unimpressive: 14 of 27 for 165 yards and one touchdown. But McCarron led the Tide's most important drive of the season when the team needed it most, throwing the winning touchdown pass to beat No. 5 LSU...and he still hasn't thrown an interception all season long.
5) Braxton Miller: QB, Ohio State (Last Week, No. 5)
Another week, another big performance by Miller to keep the Buckeyes undefeated. Miller threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns without an interception and ran for 73 more and another score.
Darkhorse Spotlight: Teddy Bridgewater: QB, Louisville
The dynamic sophomore signal caller tossed five touchdowns and 324 yards without an turnover in Louisville's 45-17 win over Temple. Granted, the opponent was weak, but Bridgewater's Cardinals are now 9-0 on the year and his 18 touchdown passes on the season are a big reason why the team should crack the BCS top 10 this week.
