Dallas Colleges: Helmet stickers 101412
Trey Millard, FB, Oklahoma: Oklahoma dominated everywhere on Saturday, and with apologies to the Sooners' defense (who got a helmet sticker last week, I might add), I'm going with the man who maximized every touch in Saturday's 63-21 victory over Texas. Millard caught a 73-yard pass and scored on a 25-yard reception. He finished with five catches for 119 yards and ran three times for 45 yards. His day included one hurdle over a defender and another play in which he hurdled one defender while a second defender bounced off of his legs. Ridiculous.
Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State: Klein had a very Collin Klein-like day in Saturday's clutch 27-21 win at Iowa State. On the final scoring drive for K-State, with the Wildcats clinging to a 24-21 lead, he converted third downs of 8, 5 and 2 yards to extend the drive and milk eight minutes off the clock. He finished with 187 yards on 16-of-24 passing and rushed for three scores and 105 yards on 25 carries. Great day on what looked to be -- and was -- a tough matchup for the 'Cats.
Texas Tech's defense: Geno Smith wasn't sure what went wrong on Saturday, but everything went right for the Texas Tech D, who held the West Virginia quarterback to just one touchdown pass and forced stops deep in its own territory all game long. West Virginia had 408 yards of offense, but went just 2-of-7 on fourth down in the Red Raiders' 49-14 dismantling. The Texas Tech D constantly stymied the Mountaineers offense, and Smith had his lowest completion percentage of the season by far, at just 52.7 percent (29-of-55). That's a good of an offense as you'll see in the country, and Tech held it to 14 points. Did anyone think that was possible before Saturday? Coordinator Art Kaufman has these boys rollin'.
Quinn Sharp, P/K, Oklahoma State: Sharp provided the winning margin in OSU's wet, sloppy, storm-delayed 20-14 victory over Kansas by booming field goals of 42 and 49 yards and drawing a roughing-the-kicker penalty on a late punt that prevented KU from getting one more shot to win the game. He also boomed a 73-yard punt, put one inside the 20-yard line and averaged 53 yards on his five punts for the night.
Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU: Boykin threw for one fourth-quarter touchdown and ran for another, redeeming himself for a rough outing against Iowa State a week ago on just one day's practice at quarterback the week of the game. Boykin finished the Horned Frogs' 49-21 victory at Baylor with four touchdown passes and 261 yards on 22-of-30 passing. He also ran for 56 yards and a touchdown.
