1. Trevone Boykin (TCU)
Even when trailing at the half 35-17 in Manhattan, Boykin showed why he’s a step above most quarterbacks in the nation by showing no panic and sticking to his game. In addition to completing 66.7% of his passes, he provided the big plays that the Frogs would desperately need to barely escape the Little Apple with a win. With just over six minutes remaining in the game, Boykin took a read-option and zipped 69 yards for a touchdown to give TCU the lead. No Wildcat would even touch him. Not only that, after K-State would tie on the next possession, Boykin once again came through finding his go-to-guy Doctson for a 55-yard touchdown strike with 1:10 remaining in the game. It would ultimately be enough for the victory. Tack on 11 carries for 124 yards and two rushing touchdowns to his two passing scores and you’ve got just another day at the office for Trevone Boykin. Even with two picks, leading your team to an 18-point, second half comeback in Manhattan is good enough for the top spot.
