We had some great showings on Saturday and others weren’t. Deanrd Robinson and Taylor Martinez fell to the back of the line after last weeks performances. Terrelle Pryor failed to follow up a great pasing game against Indiana with a horrible game vs the Badgers. Kellen Moore and Cam Newton continue to win and put up ridiculous stats. Here is the top 5 for week 8:
5th Justin Blackmon WR Oklahoma State Cowboys He leads the nation in most major categories for receiving and is a major reason behind his Cowboys being 6-0 with a big time battle against Nebraska this week. He will be matched up with stud CB Prince Amukamara for the Huskers. If he has a big game here, he will climb on this list.
4th DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma Sooners The All-Time leader in Touchdowns for the Oklahoma Sooners keeps getting it done every week. He padded his stats against a weak Iowa State team last week, but he will have a national spotlight on Saturday night when his Sooners head to Mizzou for a battle with the Tigers.
3rd LaMichael James RB Oregon Ducks He dropped a spot after the bye week, but LaMichael still has a great shot to hoist the trophy in December. Look for him to have a huge game against the Bruins this Thursday night.
2nd Kellen Moore QB Boise State Broncos 14-16 fro 231 yards and 2 TD, and that is just in the half he played. His stats would be twice as impressive if he played in the 2nd half of any games this year. The fact that he plays a weak schedule in the WAC is what bothers me about him.
1st Cameron Newton QB Auburn Tigers His performance in the shootout against the Razorbacks was incredible. He added another 4 TD’s to his tally this season and almost rushed for 200 yards. He has the Tigers up to number 5 in both polls and 4th in the BCS rankings. He finds a way to get it done every week.
