Time to give out helmet stickers for some of the best Week 2 performances among the non-AQs.
Bryce Beall, Houston. Beall set a career-high with 195 yards rushing in a 54-24 win over UTEP on Friday night. Beall also tied his career high with three touchdown runs, and averaged 10.3 yards per carry as the Cougars racked up 308 yards on the ground.
Alex Carder, Western Michigan. Carder went 24-for-33 for 298 yards and five touchdowns in the Broncos’ 49-14 win over Nicholls State. Carder became the first Western Michigan quarterback to throw for five touchdowns since Tim Hiller in 2005. Carder threw his five TDs to four different receivers: Jordan White (two), Dallas Walker, Blake Hammond Ansel Ponder once each.
Alex Ibiloye, TCU. The safety forced three fumbles in No. 4 TCU’s 62-7 win over Tennessee Tech. Nobody forced more than two fumbles for the entire 2009 season. Ibiloye totaled a team-high nine tackles, including 1.5 for loss.
Colin Kaepernick, Nevada. Kaepernick turned in one of his classic performances, with 402 yards of total offense in a 51-6 win over Colorado State. Once again, Kaepernick led the team through the air and on the ground, going 21-of-29 for 241 yards and a touchdown, with 11 carries for 161 yards rushing and two touchdowns on the ground. He has gone over 100 yards passing and rushing for the 11th time of his career.
Bryant Moniz, Hawaii. Moniz took a hard hit in a loss to USC last week and missed several days of practice, but he looked good as new in a 31-28 win over Army. Moniz went 25-of-36 for 343 yards and three touchdowns. He got off to a particularly fast start, going 17-of-22 for 239 yards and threw all his touchdown passes to give the Warriors a 21-0 lead.
