Baker Mayfield added another great game to his resume against TCU last Saturday. He threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns. He showed out against a TCU defense, which went into the game ranked sixth in the nation in total defense. This was crucial game for Mayfield to prove himself against a top 10 team, and he did not disappoint.

Bryce Love, RB, Stanford- 181 rushes, 1,622 rushing yards, 15 touchdowns

Bryce Love had another stand out performance against Washington on Saturday. He had 166 rushing yards on 30 attempts with three touchdowns. He also helped lead Stanford to the upset against the Huskies. This game was a big improvement from his game against Washington State, where he had only 69 yards rushing and one score.

Khalil Tate, QB, Arizona-  998 passing yards, eight touchdowns, 1,293 rushing yards, 11 touchdowns

Khalil Tate went off rushing against Oregon State, as he had 206 yards and two touchdowns. Tate leads an Arizona offense which controlled the game. Tate has looked unstoppable every time he has run the ball, and it was no different for him on Saturday.

Oklahoma State’s top candidate- Mason Rudolph, QB- 3,690 passing yards, 30 touchdowns, seven interceptions, 64.8 completion percentage, seven rushing touchdowns

Mason Rudolph may be out of the Heisman conversation, but he has still had quite the season. In his latest game against Iowa State, he put up great numbers. He had 376 passing yards and three touchdowns in a hostile environment. This game made sure Rudolph stayed undefeated as a starter against Iowa State and that he and the Cowboys still have a chance at a bigger bowl appearance. There is no doubt Rudolph has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest Oklahoma State quarterbacks.
