Every week (usually when a good player plays against a bad team), there are players who put up crazy video game numbers. These guys need to be recognized for completely dominating, regardless of the competition.
This fantasy-structered team consists of one quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, one tight end, one kicker, and one defense.
QB Collin Klein (Senior, Kansas State)- Klein absolutely dominated West Virginia going 19-21 for 323 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 41 yards and four touchdowns. Klein is essentially somebody you’d create in a video game- he’s huge, he can break out for big runs, and now all of a sudden has an arm. Currently, Klein is 2nd out of all quarterbacks with 14 rushing touchdowns behind Tevin Washington, but should be first by the end of the season.
Honorable mention- QB Seth Doege (Texas Tech)- Doege went 30-42 with 318 yards and seven touchdowns in an overtime win against TCU.
RB Kasey Carrier (Junior, New Mexico)– Against Air Force, Carrier went off for 338 yards and three touchdowns on 39 carries. Get this, in the past three games KC has collected 690 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. Watch out for this Lobo.
RB Kenneth Dixon (Freshman, Louisiana Tech)- Last time we heard about a Dixon in college football I believe it was a Dennis Dixon. Well now we have a new Dixon, Kenneth Dixon, who ran all over Idaho for 232 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Get this, in the past three games KD has rushed for 445 yards and 12 touchdowns…and he’s just a freshman.
(Sorry for obnoxiously using and repeating “Get this “and bolding and italicizing it)
Honorable mention- RB Joe Bergeron (Texas)- Against Baylor Joe “Harrsion” Bergeron rushed for 117 yards and five touchdowns.
WR Robert Woods (Junior, USC)- Woods had a pretty good day casually setting two USC records: Most receiving touchdowns in a game/Most career receptions passing Dwayne Jarrett. Woods had eight catches for 132 yards and four touchdowns against Boulder; he now has nine touchdowns in seven games.
WR Tyler Lockett (Sophomore, Kansas State)- With Collin Klein slinging, Lockett benefited with nine catches for 194 yards and two touchdowns. Coming into the game Lockett never made more than four catches for over 59 yards.
WR Tavarres King (Senior, Georgia)- After a few quiet weeks, Tavarres finally broke off for a big game with nine catches for 188 yards and two touchdowns. King has been a solid downfield threat averaging 19.7 yards per catch.
Honorable mention- WR Terrance Williams (Baylor)- In a loss against Texas, Williams collected 10 receptions for 183 yards and a touchdown.
TE Garrett Hoskins (Senior, Eastern Michigan)- In Eastern Michigan’s first win of the season coming against Army, Hoskins had seven catches for 158 yards and a touchdown. Hoskins has been surprisingly great with three games of 100 yards or more.
Honorable mention- TE Zach Ertz (Stanford)- Ertz had a season-high 134 yards and a touchdown against Cal.
K Jaden Oberkrom (Freshman, TCU)- In a close OT game against Texas Tech, Oberkrom was flawless going 6/6 with a long of 45 adding five extra points. The freshman kicker has a bright future, he’s 14/16 on the season with a long of 50.
Honorable mention- K Jeremiah Detmer (Toledo)- Detmer went 5/5 with a long of 47 and added two extra points.
DST Southern Methodist- In a win over Houston, SMU totaled six interceptions, three sacks, three fumbles recovered, and four defensive touchdowns despite giving up 42 points.
Honorable mention- DST Bowling Green- Against Massachusetts, Bowling Green had four interceptions and one defensive touchdown while holding the offense to just 118 yards (33 passing, 85 rushing)
