Sonny Cumbie, Texas Tech
Cumbie led the Red Raiders to a big road win at Kansas State, completing 27 of 39 passes for 326 yards. The senior from Abilene had to TDs through the air without throwing an interception.
Runner-Up: Clint Marks, Middle Tennessee
Adrian Peterson, Oklahoma
Peterson was a key to OU's huge road win at Oklahoma State. The true freshman by way of Palestine, Texas had 33 rushes for 249 yards (7.5 yard average) and also ran for a touchdown on the day.
Runner-Up: Cedric Houston, Tennessee
Braylon Edwards, Michigan
Edwards, one of the nation's best at his position, helped the Wolverines get past in-state rival Michigan State. The Detroit senior hauled in 11 catches for 189 yards (17.2 average) and 3 TDs.
Runner-Up: Mark Bradley, Oklahoma
Props to the Bears for beating any Big XII team. They had not done it in their last eleven tries and hadn't beaten Texas A&M in 13 tries. Funny for that streak to go down on Halloween weekend.
Michigan State at Michigan
The Wolverines came from 17 points behind in just under six minutes to force overtime. After trading field goals and TDs in the first two extra periods, UM scored and then held MSU in the third OT to win the game.
Runner-Up: Oklahoma at Oklahoma State
North Carolina over Miami
One of the unbeatens went down on Saturday in Chapel Hill...as did the goalposts. The Hurricanes should have seen it coming, as UNC had already beaten both Georgia Tech and NC State on their home turf.
Runner-Up: Maryland over Florida State
