QB Trenton Bourguet – Arizona State

With starting quarterback Emory Jones going down with an injury during the second quarter on Saturday night against Washington, Bourguet entered the game and led the Sun Devils to an unexpected victory. Not only did he manage the game very well, but he also impressed statistically by completing 15 of 21 passes for 182 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. The question will now loom regarding who will start once Jones is fully healthy with Bourguet’s performance suddenly creating a quarterback controversy in Tempe.

DL Fadil Diggs – Texas A&M

Plenty of publicity has been given to the younger players on the Aggies’ defensive line, but it was Diggs who shined at Alabama on Saturday night. The 2020 signee has shined in spurts during his time in College Station but put it all together against the Tide with six tackles, three tackles for a loss, two sacks and two forced fumbles.

DL Darrell Jackson Jr. – Miami-Florida

Jackson was one of the many transfers that the Canes added during the off-season, but until the North Carolina game, he had been off to a slow start. Finishing the game with seven tackles, 1.5 tackles for a loss and one sack, this may have been the coming out party for a defensive lineman who has the potential to be one of the best in the ACC.
