Matt Leinart and the Trojans were all business this week in their dismantling of Washington. Leinart completed passes to 7 different receivers on his way to a 20 of 26 day. Dwayne Jarrett caught 3 of those TDs for the 2nd time this year.

Broncos defensive end Matt Judeman drove Jacobs into the ground in the first quarter, and Omar was out of the game after that. It was an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, so Jacobs should return this week for the Falcons.

Reggie Bush will probably win the Heisman Trophy, but Young is going to make voters at least consider him as college football's best player. Young looked like Superman in Texas' big win versus previously undefeated Texas Tech. Vince looked very comfortable passing the ball despite two early interceptions.


Reggie McNeal, QB, Texas A&M Aggies

McNeal helped the Aggies hold off a late comeback by the Wildcats. McNeal ran for a 26-yard touchdown on A&M's first offensive play and didn't look back. It was an average day throwing the ball as it was Reggie's feet that racked up the big numbers.

Brad Smith was on fire this last Saturday versus the Cornhuskers. He set a school record with 480 yards of total offense as the Tigers cruised to a 41-24 win over Nebraska. The Bugeaters had led the nation in rushing yards allowed per game (65) until Smith rolled up 246 yards on them by himself.

Reggie Bush just won the Heisman trophy. He was again a big time playmaker for the Trojans, even though he didn't have a big day rushing. In the 2nd quarter of the game Bush returned a punt, spinning out of a pack of six Huskies, on his way to an 84-yard score.

DeAngelo had another 200 yard game (his 4th of the season) and the Tigers ended East Carolina's 2-game win streak on Saturday. Williams had a career high 39 rushes and scored a pair of goalline touchdowns to help seal the win.

LenDale had another below average day as the Trojans rolled on to another victory. White got a majority of the carries on Saturday but failed to get into the endzone. LDW continued to show great power between the tackles and more great games await him this season.

The 11th ranked Seminoles bounced back from their first loss of the season and beat up on the poor Duke Blue Devils. Washington again teamed up with Lorenzo Booker to provide the 'Noles with a good run game. But the real story was freshmen Gregg Carr's three touchdown catches.

Martin Nance played a great game versus Eastern Michigan, and although he didn't have over 100 yards receiving (only the 2nd time this year), he did catch both of Josh Betts' touchdown passes. Nance provided a consistent target for his QB as the Redhawks held off Eastern Michigan for a close win. Martin continually shows great leaping ability and body control down in the red zone.

Derek Hagan was held in check for the most part in a crushing loss to Stanford. Sam Keller, the Sun Devils QB, was cleared to play despite numerous injuries, but was largely ineffective and thus was benched in the 3rd quarter. Hagan's numbers suffered in this game and ASU should hope that Keller comes back soon.

The Red Raiders tried to keep up with the Longhorns, but in the end, they didn't have enough offense, and they made too many mental mistakes to win. Hicks had a good game for Tech, and QB Cory Hodges did pass for 369 yards and 2 touchdowns versus an aggressive Texas defense.

The Beavers ran into a hot, undefeated (7-0) team, with a superstar QB from southern California. No, it wasn't USC, but UCLA, and the QB's name is Drew Olson who threw for a school record 6 TDs in this shoot-out game. Mike Hass had another great game for he Beavers, but in the end it wasn't enough. In an interesting twist, Beaver QB Matt Moore transferred from UCLA after Drew Olson beat him out for the starting job in 2003.

Steve Smith saw Dwayne Jarrett have another monster day for the USC offense. Smith still provided a reliable and consistent target for Matt Leinart. Jarrett has 25 TD catches in 20 games, but Smith sees most of the attention from opposing defenses.
