What a fantastic weekend of college football.  Great performances, wild endings, and huge upsets permeated the college football landscape.  Simply put, this was what makes college football so great.  With rivalry week upon us, we should be treated to another great slate of games, highlighted by the LSU-Arkansas match-up on Friday.
Game of the Week – Iowa State 37 – Oklahoma State 31 (2 OT).  This game set the tone for the entire weekend.  The ‘Clones bounced back from an early 17 point deficit to knock off the 2nd ranked Cowboys in double-overtime.  Props to the ISU crowd as Jack Trice Stadium was rockin’ like never before.  Iowa State will relish their biggest win in school history, while OSU will try to revive their slim BCS Title Game chances.
Offensive Player of the Week – Robert Griffin III, Baylor- QB.  RG3 was simply magnificent against the Sooners.  The possible Heisman front-runner was 21-34 for 479 yards and 4 TD’s, and kept plays alive with his feet many times throughout the contest.  Is there a more valuable player to his team in the NCAA? 
Defensive Player of the Week – Sammy Brown, Houston – LB.  Brown helped keep Houston’s BCS hopes alive with 10 tackes, 4.5 TFL and 3 sacks in the Cougars’ 37-7 win over SMU.  He now leads the nation in TFL and stands second in sacks after his monster performance against the Pony’s.
