Listen to the Week 11 predictions podcast:
The Top 3:
1. Marcus Mariota, Oregon
Possibly the last big road test for Mariota took place this weekend in Salt Lake City and the Ducks quarterback was brilliant once again. He threw for 239 yards, rushed for 114 yards and accounted for four touchdowns in the 51-27 win. It was his seventh game with at least four touchdowns, which leads the nation, and his 184.56 QB rating still leads the nation by a wide margin. On the year, he’s scored 37 touchdowns and thrown just two interceptions.
Season Stats: 2,780 yards, 67.1%, 29 TDs, 2 INTs, 524 rush yards, 8 TDs
2. Dak Prescott, Mississippi St
Mississippi State sort of played a football game in Week 11. Prescott didn’t play the entire game but still posted solid numbers in a 45-16 win over UT-Martin. The Bulldogs signal-caller threw for 206 yards and two touchdowns while rushing six times for 54 yards and another score on the ground. Prescott leads the SEC in total offense with 3,010 yards
Season Stats: 2,231 yards, 61.1%, 18 TDs, 7 INTs, 779 rush yards, 11 TDs
3. Trevone Boykin, TCU
The TCU quarterback has slowly but surely worked his way into the top three. And it’s warranted after his performance against a very good Kansas State team. In the Horned Frogs' 41-20 win over KSU, Boykin threw for 219 yards and a touchdown and no interceptions, but he did most of his damage on the ground. He rushed 17 times for 123 yards and three touchdowns. Boykin is fourth nationally with 359.7 yards of total offense per game.
Season Stats: 2,691 yards, 58.0%, 23 TDs, 4 INTs, 546 rush yards, 7 TDs
