Matt Leinart continued to tear apart the competition in an easy win over Arkansas. Matt played only 3 quarters in this blowout, passing for 4 TDs and also running a TD in. Overall the Trojans racked up over 700 yards of total offense, with Leinart leading the way. USC will look to extend their 24 game winning streak this week versus Pac-10 rival Oregon.

Freshmen tailback Jamaal Charles stole the show for the Longhorns in their domination of Rice. Vince Young led Texas on a 99-yard TD drive in which he had a 51-yard scramble. Young was not asked to do much against the Owls except hand off to the freshmen sensation. Young left the game midway in the 3rd quarter because it was a blowout.

Reggie McNeal had one of the best games by a college QB that I've seen this season. McNeal set a school record with 449 total yards, throwing for 349 yards and running for 100 in just three quarters to lead Texas A&M to a 66-8 win over SMU on Saturday. His 5 TD passes were 15, 80, 62, 32, and 47 yards long. McNeal and the Aggies took advantage of SMU turnovers as Reggie showed great command of the offense. It was the first 300-yard passing day of his career.

Brad Smith played a turnover-free game and showed great touch, timing, and accuracy on all of his throws. Troy beat Missouri last year, but Smith ensured that it wouldn't happen again with his solid play. He had an unspectacular Saturday, but was consistent with his reads and made good decisions with the football.

Reggie Bush scored the first two times that he touched the ball in a rout of the Razorbacks. Bush had a phenomenal run on a simple dive play with his first carry of the game. He started inside, then made a couple of quick moves leading him into the clear on his way to a 76-yard TD run. The Trojan offense scored 9 TDs on their first 10 possessions, and Arkansas couldn't say "Uncle!" fast enough.


DeAngelo Williams, RB, Memphis Tigers

Williams had a great game, leading the Tigers to a 55-15 win. It was their first win of the year, and DeAngelo was the driving force once again. He had 147 yards in the 1st half on 16 carries, and it was his 5th 200-yard rushing game of his career. He had TD runs of 15, 9, and 20 yards while displaying the burst that he is known for.

LenDale White again played the role of the TD machine for the defending champion USC Trojans. The Trojans reached the 70-point plateau for the first time in nearly 35 years. USC scored early and often, once scoring 4 TDs in the span of 3 minutes and 20 seconds. White showed off his trademark power running style that included a 1-yard plunge at the goal line.

The Gophers were up big (40-0) at halftime and had already racked up 579 yards of offense. Florida Atlantic is in their 2nd year of Division I-A, and they were simply overmatched by the power running game led by Maroney. With his 3rd carry of the game Laurence took it off the right end, threw in a few juke moves and went untouched for a 38-yard score. During the next series Maroney took a dump off pass 37 yards for the TD. Laurence capped off the 2nd quarter with a 10-yard scoring run, giving Minnesota points on all seven 1st half possessions.

Washington showed good versatility against Boston College as FSU rudely welcomed BC to the ACC. His stats have not been extraordinary this season as he splits time with Lorenzo Booker in the Seminole backfield. Despite his limited playing time, Washington remains a good NFL draft prospect.

Martin Nance was among a trio of Redhawks that helped in beating the Golden Flashes of Kent State. Nance had a nice TD catch on a 1-yard jump pass. Martin has great leaping ability, as well as great size and wingspan, which make him nearly impossible to cover in the red zone. He displayed great hands and concentration with his other receptions.

Derek Hagan provided Sam Keller with a consistent target and he caught a 27-yard TD pass. ASU pounded Northwestern in a 52-21 rout. The Sun Devils bounced back nicely from a loss against LSU by racking up a school record 773 yards of offense. Hagan is a solid and spectacular receiver that can be counted on every week. NFL scouts are excited to see what he can do in the pro game.

The Red Raiders completely embarrassed Sam Houston State in an 80-21 rout. However, it wasn't the most points they've scored in a game. Back in 1925 they dropped 120 (!) points on Wayland Baptist. Hicks didn't play in the game against Florida International for what coach Leach called personal reasons. Cory Hodges passed for 436 yards and 5 TDs, favoring QB-turned-WR Robert Johnson. Hicks should once again become the premier WR for the Red Raiders and provides them with the best deep threat on the team.

Hass provided a big play receiver for the Beavers, but it wasn't enough versus Louisville as Oregon State fell 63-27. The Beavers were down early and the game turned into a rout because of a stellar Louisville pass rush and great special teams play. Because his QB had little time, Hass saw some errant passes thrown his way. He made the most of it with 9 receptions and a TD.

The Razorbacks played aggressive pass defense against the Trojans and kept Steve Smith from scoring. He was about the only Trojan not to score in this one sided contest. USC had the ball for only 1:32 in the first quarter, but gained 246 yards on eight plays - four of them touchdowns - for a 28-7 lead. Smith provides the Trojans with a consistent, big-play receiver that Leinart can count on.
