Jonathan Fields, Northwestern

The experts overlook the Cougars time and time again, but WSU just keeps on winning. A road victory over New Mexico should look impressive at season's end.

The defending national champions drove down the field in the final minutes to score a TD and tying two-point conversion before winning the game on a missed extra point in overtime.
Runner-Up: Northwestern at TCU

The Thundering Herd has lost some of its fright recently, while the Trojans look to be a front-runner in the Sun Belt this season.
