Missouri QB Chase Daniel was 23 of 28 for 405 yards and four touchdowns against Nevada a week after the Wolf Pack held Texas Tech's Graham Harrell to fewer than 300 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
South Florida QB Matt Grothe gave the Big East its first signature win of the season, against Kansas, by digging the Bulls out of a 17-point hole. He was 32 of 45 for 338 yards for two touchdowns and also ran for a score.
Cracking the BYU record book for a quarterback is no easy task. From Gifford Nielsen to Marc Wilson to Jim McMahon to Steve Young to Robbie Bosco to Ty Detmer to John Beck, the Cougars have a long list of productive QBs.
Hall joined them in the first three quarters of a 59-0 rout of UCLA. Hall threw seven touchdown passes, tying a school record held by McMahon and Wilson. Hall finished 27 of 35 for 271 yards, with an interception.
Along the way, Hall kept BYU in the hunt for a BCS game with a second consecutive victory over a Pac-10 opponent. At the same time, Hall put himself in the discussion for the Heisman Trophy.
COORDINATOR OF THE WEEK: Robert Anae, BYU offensive coordinator
Anae rounds out the double-dip for the BYU offense in our national awards.
Though UCLA has been a mess on offense because of injuries, the Bruins' defense was expected to be the strength of the team. UCLA's 27-24 win over Tennessee in the opener seemed to prove that point.
BYU shattered that notion. A week after a 28-27 win over Washington, the Cougars erased any doubt against the Bruins. BYU led 42-0 at halftime, and the Cougars finished with 521 yards.
Griffin was 7-for-15 for 129 yards and a touchdown against Washington State, but he did most of his damage on the ground. He ran for a school-record 217 yards and two touchdowns against the Cougars.
Others considered for freshman of the week: Michigan RB Sam McGuffie: The Wolverines might not have a quarterback, but at least they have McGuffie - a true freshman who accounted for 178 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Better yet, he didn't fumble.
Oklahoma WR Ryan Broyles: Broyles, a redshirt freshman wide receiver, had another huge week for the Sooners with three catches for 85 yards and a touchdown against Washington.
