THE WEEKEND'S BEST
September 6, 2005

NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
    RB Brian Calhoun, University of Wisconsin

TOP QUARTERBACK

Omar Jacobs, Bowling Green

Sure, the Falcons' upset bid of Wisconsin fell short, but Jacobs showed why he is one of the top QBs in the country. The junior from Florida completed 30 of 51 passes for 458 yards and five touchdowns on Saturday.

Runner-Up: Matt Moore, Oregon State

TOP RUNNING BACK

Brian Calhoun, Wisconsin

Calhoun, a transfer from Colorado, dashed for 258 yards and 5 TDs on 43 carries in a Saturday morning, season-opening victory over Bowling Green. The junior averaged a half-dozen yards per carry on the day.

Runner-Up: Laurence Maroney, Minnesota

TOP WIDE RECEIVER

Chad Jackson, Florida

The junior from Birmingham, Alabama hauled in 10 passes for 138 yards and 3 touchdowns as the Gators took down Wyoming on Saturday. Jackson also had one rushing attempt that went for five yards.

Runner-Up: Greg Jennings, Western Michigan

TOP TEAM

Georgia Tech

The Jackets, a team we said would be one to watch for in the ACC this season, went into Auburn and ended the Tigers' winning streak. QB Reggie Ball and RB P.J. Daniels led GT to the nine-point victory.

Runner-Up: Georgia

TOP GAME

Clemson over Texas A&M

After a disappointing season in 2004, the Tigers got the 2005 season off to a good start with a last-second victory over one of the Big XII favorites. CU's Jad Dean kicked the game-winning field goal with two seconds left.

Runner-Up: Illinois over Rutgers

TOP UPSET

TCU over Oklahoma

The Horned Frogs weren't even a preseason favorite in the WAC, much less a threat to Oklahoma. Or so everyone thought. Coach Gary Patterson's squad went into Norman and came away with a huge seven-point victory.

Runner-Up: Notre Dame over Pittsburgh
