Turner Gill, coach, Kansas: This sticker could have gone anywhere. Jordan Webb probably deserved it with a fantastic performance (18-of-29, 179 yards, three touchdowns) in his first career start, or true freshman James Sims, who rushed for 101 yards and a score on 17 carries. The front seven slowed Georgia Tech's Heisman hopeful, quarterback Joshua Nesbitt, to just 33 yards on 15 carries and could have gotten a sticker too. But Gill kept his team together and Kansas' eight-game losing streak has been snapped with a huge 28-25 win for the Jayhawks.

Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: After struggling a week ago, Jones threw for 380 yards on 30-of-40 passing and four touchdowns in a dominating 47-17 win over No. 17 Florida State. Here's what I wrote about his day.

Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M: Moore spent his day trying to replace a limited Von Miller. The true freshman couldn't have delivered a more impressive day in a 48-16 win over Louisiana Tech. He recovered a fumble, notched two sacks, forced three more fumbles, and made seven tackles. The 6-foot-4, 248-pounder looks like a budding star for the Aggies defense.

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State: Blackmon further staked his claim as Brandon Weeden's No. 1 option in the Cowboys' offense, catching 10 balls for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Oklahoma State's 41-38 win over Troy. Saturday night's performance gives him 18 catches for 257 yards and five touchdowns on the year.

DeJon Gomes, S, Nebraska: The Blackshirts were full of big plays in a 38-17 win over Idaho: five interceptions, two for touchdowns, and seven sacks. But Gomes made the day's biggest play of the game when he intercepted Idaho's Nathan Enderle, a Nebraska native, and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. Eight of his 10 tackles also came in the first half while Nebraska raced to a 31-3 halftime lead with a 28-point second quarter. Gomes and safety Rickey Thenarse each recorded their first career touchdown after returning interceptions in the second quarter.
