Zach Collaros, QB, Cincinnati: Starting for the injured Tony Pike, Collaros completed 15-of-17 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for another 52 yards in a 41-10 win over Louisville.
Pitt's offensive line: The Panthers had many stars on offense, but it all started with a dominant performance up front in a 41-14 win over South Florida.
Connecticut: Yep, the whole team. The Huskies played through heavy hearts after the murder of Jasper Howard, and they turned in an inspired and admirable effort in nearly winning at West Virginia.
