Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford: Luck completed 23-of-27 for 227 yards with three touchdowns in the 45-19 win over UCLA. He also caught a beautiful, one-handed 13-yard reception on a trick play. Trending? Same.

LaMichael James, RB, Oregon: James was off over the weekend, but this story raised my eyebrows at least. Trending? Same.

He ranks 10th in the nation with 122.2 yards rushing per game. He might need to get his buddy, quarterback Keith Price, to stop throwing so many touchdown passes. Polk has just four rushing touchdowns this season. Trending? Up.
