The List highlights the Top Performers from week 7 of college football.
1.) Seth Doege QB Texas Tech
I’m sure nobody though Seth Doege would outplay Heisman front-runner Geno Smith yesterday, but he certainly did so rather convincingly. Doege and the Red Raiders made West Virginia look like Sam Houston State yesterday en route to a 49-14 beating. Doege threw 4 of his 6 TDs in the 1st half while finishing with 499 yards passing and 6 TDs on the day.
Mayhem was present at the game yesterday, however he was caught before he could cause a car accident and make someone regret not having All State insurance…
2.) Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M
Has anyone else started to notice that Manziel makes this list every week? It’s about time we start talking about Manziel being a serious Heisman candidate because he has taken Kevin Sumlin’s offense to a new level this year in terms of efficiency. Yesterday was no different for Manziel as he threw for 395 yards and 3 TDs while also running for another 181 yards and 3 TDs, This effort was much needed in the Aggies 59-57 victory over #23 Louisiana Tech.
3.) Jeremy Hill RB LSU
In yesterday’s biggest game, one of the youngest players stepped up. True Freshmen Jeremy Hill proved to be the biggest offensive weapon on the evening as he helped lead #9 LSU to a huge win over #3 South Carolina last night. Hill battered the South Carolina interior defense for 124 yards and 2 TDs on just 17 carries.
Mute this video, but watch it…
4.) T.J. Yeldon and Eddie Lacy RBs Alabama
In a nutshell: Missouri didn’t fair very well against the run yesterday. T.J. Yeldon and Eddie Lacy did basically whatever they wanted in their thumping of the Tigers while helping Bama rack up 362 yards on the ground. Yeldon finished with 144 and 2 TDs while Lacy chipped in with 177 and 3 more scores. Each averaged over 8 yards a carry.
The suplex was always one of my favorite wrestling moves…
5.) Montee Ball RB Wisconsin
It was good to see Montee Ball back to being his old self yesterday as he and the Badgers got another much needed conference win. Ball toted the ball 29 times for 247 yards and 3 TDs. After yesterday’s game only Travis Prentice of Miami(Oh) and Ricky Williams of Texas have more career rushing TDs than Ball.
