I can already feel the e-mails and comments coming. “Where did Beau Blakenship go? You can’t punish him just because he was off this past week!” To you tens of Beau Blakenship fans out there… I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of Beau Blakenship. You can’t stop Beau Blakenship, you can only hope to contain him.
Wasn’t there supposed to be an epic battle between two Heisman frontrunners this week? Did Geno Smith miss the bus? It looks like those NFL teams who have adopted the “Torpedo for Geno” losing campaign may want to rethink that. (My personal favorite: “Petrino for Geno”)
The +1 also wanted to give a quick acknowledgement to Stefphon “No Typo” Jefferson. Stefphon is averaging 156 rushing yards per game and needs to average 150.4 yards in his remaining games to hit 2,000.
1. Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State (1,397 yards passing, 70.5%, 10 TD’s, 2 INT’s; 551 yards rushing, 5.0 ypc, 14 TD’s) Optimus Klein Transformed the 5+1 and completely obliterated (an awful) West Virginia defense to solidify himself atop the Heisman mountain.
2. Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon (870 yards rushing, 6.6 ypc, 12 TD’s; 112 yards receiving, 1 TD) Kenjon could have rushed for 400 yards if Oregon Head Coach Chip Kelly had turned him loose all game instead of just the first quarter.
3. Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech (2,209 yards passing, 70.8%, 28 TD’s, 7 INT’s) Seth has thrown for 817 yards and 13 TD’s over the past two weeks during wins over West Virginia and TCU.
4. Colby Cameron, QB, Louisiana Tech (2,306 yards passing, 71.3%, 20 TD’s, 0 INT’s) Colby has one blemish on his record which is a loss to Texas A&M that should have been a win (except for the NCAA replacements refs. Wait…. What? Those weren’t replacement refs? *shaking head*)
5. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia (2,414 yards passing, 74.2%, 26 TD’s, 2 INT’s) Geno has to start winning again. Period.
+1. Stefphon Jefferson, RB, Nevada (1,248 yards rushing, 5.0 ypc, 15 TD’s)
