THE WEEKEND'S BEST
October 16, 2005

NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
    RB Steve Slaton, West Virginia

    31 carries, 188 yards, 6.1 ypc, 5 TDs

TOP QUARTERBACK

Cody Hodges, Texas Tech

Sure he threw two interceptions. And sure it was against lowly Kansas State. But anytime someone throws for 643 yards (643!), that player deserves to be recognized. Hodges, a senior, had five TD passes and completed 44 of 65.

Runner-Up: Colt Brennan, Hawaii - 515 yards, 7 TD

TOP RUNNING BACK

Yvenson Bernard, Oregon State

The Beavers went into Berkeley and stunned the Bears 23-20 thanks in part to the performance of this sophomore from Florida. Bernard ran 42 times for 194 yards, over 4.5 per carry, and a pair of touchdowns in the victory.

Runner-Up: Jerome Harrison, Washington State - 260 yards

TOP WIDE RECEIVER

Santonio Holmes, Ohio State

The junior from Florida helped get the Buckeyes back on track against Michigan State. Holmes hauled in just five passes but for 150 yards (30 per catch) and two touchdowns in OSU's 35-24 Big Ten win on Saturday.

Runner-Up: Jeff Webb, San Diego State - 142 yards, 2 TDs

TOP TEAM

Virginia

After dropping two straight games away from home, the Cavs returned to Charlottesville and upset previously-unbeaten Florida State. QB Mauques Hagans was nearly perfect, allowing UVA to improve to 4-2 on the season.

Runner-Up: West Virginia - (W) vs Louisville 46-44 (3OT)

TOP GAME

Southern Cal over Notre Dame

This battle proved to be everything that it was hyped to be and much more. The Irish led most of the way, but after scoring with two minutes left, UND saw Matt Leinart march down the field and score the game-winner as time expired.

Runner-Up: UCLA 44 over Washington State 41 (OT)

TOP UPSET

Cincinnati over Connecticut

The Bearcats, who had beaten E. Michigan and W. Carolina by a combined six points and who had been hammered by Miami (Ohio), knocked off the Huskies 28-17. Had UConn won, they would be tied atop the Big East standings.

Runner-Up: Oregon State 23 over California 20
