2. Patrick Mahomes (TEXAS TECH)
Once again Patrick Mahomes turns in another dazzling performance complete with its own highlight reel. Mahomes decimated the Cyclone defense through the air and they simply had no answer for him. The Red Raider quarterback threw for 428 passing yards while completing 71.7% of his passes and tallying five touchdowns, all the while committing zero turnovers. After injuring his leg two weeks ago against TCU, Mahomes, who leads the conference in passing yards, is still finding ways to avoid rushers and extend plays while his receivers get open downfield. Yet another stellar performance by Mahomes has come and gone leaving Red Raider Nation asking themselves, “What does this kid have to do to get some national attention?” This performance was incredibly close but, as we all know, competition counts. Iowa State is in complete disarray and it would take a miracle for the ‘Clones to win another game this year.
