Time to hand out our awards a little bit earlier this week. Sorry for those of you expecting them at 4 a.m.
Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State: Weeden bounced back from a rough first half to set school records for completions (47) and passing yards (438) and two touchdowns, which should have been three if not for a fumble from Justin Blackmon. Weeden had an outstanding second half and helped the Cowboys knock off No. 8 Texas A&M in College Station, 30-29.
Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor: Griffin is on an absolute tear, completing 29 of 33 passes for 338 yards and five touchdowns in a 56-31 blowout win over Rice. He now has 13 touchdown passes to 12 incompletions in three games.
John Hubert, RB, Kansas State: The Wildcats made some headlines with a huge 28-24 win on the road against Miami to move to 3-0. Hubert helped them do it with the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and 166 yards on 18 carries. That's 9.2 yards per carry against a 'Canes defense that held Ohio State to six points last week. Noooooot bad, Mr. Hubert.
Eric Stephens, RB, Texas Tech: The Red Raiders played without their top receiver, but in a tight game against Nevada, Stephens emerged as the reliable ballcarrier Texas Tech knows he can be. He carried the ball 26 times for 134 yards and two scores in a 35-34 win over the Wolf Pack.
