Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State: Weeden threw for 328 of his 409 passing yards in the first half and left the game early in the third quarter. His six touchdown passes and no interceptions pushed Oklahoma State to a big halftime lead in its 65-28 win over Tulsa.
Will Muschamp, defensive coordinator, Texas: His defense locked down Texas Tech's offense, keeping them under 150 total yards for the first time since 1990. The Longhorns defense allowed just seven points and helped Texas earn a tough conference win in Lubbock over Texas Tech, 24-14.
Scott Smith, DE, Texas Tech: Smith was everywhere for a Texas Tech defense that played fantastic in its loss to Texas. He tipped a pass to himself for an interception, tipped another pass that ended up in the hands of Jarvis Phillips, who returned the pick 87 yards for a touchdown. He also had two sacks and a forced fumble to go with his six tackles.
T.J. Moe, WR, Missouri: Missouri's season was preparing for an early black eye after back-to-back interceptions from Blaine Gabbert. But with under a minute to play, Moe took a pass from Gabbert, made a few defenders miss and raced 68 yards into the end zone for a 27-24 win over San Diego State that rescued an otherwise lackluster night for the Tigers.
Taylor Martinez, QB, Nebraska: T-Magic made it happen all day in a lot of different ways in Nebraska's 56-21 win over Washington. His 80-yard touchdown run on the opening play of the second half put the Huskers up by 21, and he ran for 137 yards on 19 carries with three scores. He also threw for 150 yards on 7-of-11 passing and got his first career touchdown pass on his first pass of the day.
