NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK
QB Vince Young, University of Texas
Cody Hodges, Texas Tech

Tyrell Sutton, Northwestern
The true freshman out of Akron, Ohio propelled the Wildcats to a huge win over in-state rival NIU on Saturday. Sutton ran 30 times for a total of 214 yards (7.1 ypc) and four TDs as NU took down the Huskies 38-37.

TOP WIDE RECEIVER

With a new QB taking over for the Bears this week, the sophomore stepped up to lead the way in Seattle. Jordan hauled in 11 passes for 192 yards and a trio of touchdowns as Cal took down Washington 56-17.
Runner-Up: Hank Baskett, New Mexico
Led by the play of QB Vince Young and the three FGs of kicker David Pino, the Longhorns went into Columbus and came away with a huge 25-22 victory over Ohio State. UT is now 2-0 and just three weeks away from Oklahoma.
Runner-Up: (tie) Notre Dame and Clemson
LSU over Arizona State
Down three points with just over a minute to go and facing a fourth down, the Tigers' JaMarcus Russell found Early Doucet open in the endzone for a 39-yard TD pass. ASU's last drive was stopped, and Les Miles earned his first LSU win.
Runner-Up: Northwestern over Northern Illinois
SMU over TCU
After the Frogs went into Norman and took down Oklahoma in week one, no one considered that a trip to Dallas would be a challenge for TCU. The Mustangs, led by DeMyron Martin's three TDs, would have nothing of it and downed TCU 21-10.
Runner-Up: Ohio over Pittsburgh
