Joe Nicholson/US PresswireJake Locker can make a loud Heisman statement this week against Nebraska.
Jacquizz Rodgers, RB, Oregon State: Off. Trending: Neutral.

Jake Locker, QB, Washington: Locker completed 22-of-33 for 289 yards with four TDs and no interceptions. If HE leads the Huskies to a win over Nebraska, he'll be in the middle of the race. Trending: Up.

LaMichael James, RB, Oregon: He returned from a one-game suspension and rushed for 134 yards on just 16 carries, with a highlight-reel 72-yard TD scamper that was all him. Trending: Up.

Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford: Luck didn't throw terribly well vs. UCLA -- 11-of-24 for 151 yards, two TDs -- but he also rushed seven times for 63 yards. Trending: Neutral.

Nick Foles, QB, Arizona: Didn't do much vs. The Citadel, but he didn't need to: completing 17-of-22 for 214 yards with a TD and an interception. Trending: Neutral.

Matt Barkley, QB, USC: Another solid performance. Barkley completed 20-of-35 for 202 yards with two TDs and no picks. He also had an impressive -- and surprising -- 20-yard scramble. Trending: Neutral.

James Rodgers, WR, Oregon State: Off. Trending: Neutral.

Shane Vereen, RB, California: Vereen rushed 16 times for 59 yards and a TD and caught three passes for 18 yards and a TD in the blowout win over Colorado. Trending: Down.

Chris Polk, RB, Washington: He rushed for 117 yards on 20 carries, including a 52-yard scamper for a TD. Trending: Up.

Ronald Johnson, WR, USC: He caught five passes for 58 yards with a couple of drops. Trending: Down.
