Tracking the Candidates
Aug. 30, 2014
Mariota didn't have to play much in the Ducks' 62-13 thrashing of South Dakota. He completed 14 of 20 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns, and he added 43 yards and another TD on the ground.
Winston was 25-of-40 passing for 370 yards and a touchdown in the Seminoles' 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State, but he did throw two interceptions in the second quarter. He had a 28-yard touchdown run in the third quarter on a quarterback draw.
Gurley rushed for 198 yards and three touchdowns -- on runs of 23, 18 and 51 yards -- in the Bulldogs' 45-21 win over Clemson in Week 1. He added another touchdown on a dazzling 100-yard kickoff return.
Miller recently had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his throwing shoulder. He is out for the season.
UCLA only scored one offensive touchdown in its win over Virginia, but that score came on a 6-yard Hundley run in the second half. Hundley was under heavy pressure all game and was sacked four times. He completed 20 of 33 passes for 242 yards but fumbled twice and had a hard time sustaining drives.
