The Manning Award has named nine quarterbacks as its "Stars of the Week," and two are from the Pac-12 and three of others are of interest.

The two Pac-12 QBs on the list are USC's Matt Barkley and Arizona's Matt Scott.

The QBs of interest are two that Pac-12 teams face this weekend -- Nebraska's Taylor Martinez (UCLA) and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib (USC) -- and another conference team faces next weekend in Ohio State's Braxton Miller (California).

Here are the numbers and comments from the Manning award for these five.

Matt Barkley, USC

(23-of-38, 372 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INT)

Barkley hooks up a 75-yard touchdown connection on the first play of the season to get USC rolling in a 49-10 wipeout of Hawaii.

Braxton Miller, Ohio State

(14-of-24, 207 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INT)

The sophomore adds 161 rushing yards, a school record for a quarterback, and another touchdown in a 56-10 blowout of Miami (Ohio) for Urban Meyer's Buckeye debut.

Taylor Martinez, Nebraska

(26-of-34, 354 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INT)

Martinez, known more for his running skills than his passing skills, registers a career-high in passing yards in leading the Huskers to a 49-20 victory over Southern Miss.

Ryan Nassib, Syracuse

(44-of-65, 470 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT)

Nassib throws four second-half touchdowns and obliterates his own school record for completions (29), but it's not enough for the Orange, who fall to Northwestern, 42-41.

Matt Scott, Arizona

(30-of-46, 387 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT)

Scott sets his career-high in passing yards, including a 10-yard scoring strike in overtime to give the Wildcats a 24-17 win over Toledo in the debut for coach Rich Rodriguez.
