Here are five guys who can slap a sticker on their helmet for a job well done.

Taylor Martinez, QB, Nebraska: He might even deserve two. Martinez rushed for 241 yards and threw for 128 more, accounting for five touchdowns in Nebraska's 48-13 beatdown of Kansas State.

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State: Blackmon wasn't even open on a few of his big catches against Louisiana-Lafayette in the Cowboys' 54-28 win. Blackmon has obviously earned the trust of quarterback Brandon Weeden, who threw up jump balls to Blackmon several times on Friday night -- once for a 43-yard touchdown into double coverage and another touchdown on a fade route in the back of the end zone. Blackmon finished with 13 catches for 190 yards -- both career highs -- and the two touchdowns.

Missouri's defense: It's tough to pick out a single player from the unit, who used a big effort from all 11 guys to shut out Colorado in Missouri's 26-0 win. They limited Colorado to 311 yards -- just 61 on the ground -- and forced a turnover. Defensive tackle Terrell Resonno blocked a field goal, and the Tigers also forced a safety after a flag for intentional grounding on Colorado's Tyler Hansen. These guys are giving up just more than 11 points a game. It's time to start considering them one of the conference's best defenses.

Taylor Potts, QB, Texas Tech: He completed 42 of 59 passes for 462 yards and four touchdowns with just one interception. His fourth touchdown helped give the Red Raiders a 17-point lead in its 45-38 win over Baylor at the Cotton Bowl.

Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State: He threw five touchdown passes and topped 350 yards. Three of his touchdowns were from longer than 20 yards in his first road start, earning the win over the Ragin' Cajuns.
