After another week of incredible football with several upsets, here are your Week 8 Beast Mode Performers.
Rakeem Cato, Marshall: 15 of 27 for 214 yards, 4 TDs and 1 Int at FIU. The Marshall QB is on this list for second week in a row. We had to include Cato who set the NCAA Football record for Consecutive Games with a Passing Touchdown at 39 passing Russell Wilson (NC State, Wisconsin). Cato has the Thundering Herd at 7-0 and if they keep winning, they will be in the conversation for the College Playoffs.
Trevone Boykin, TCU: 26 of 39 410 yards, 3 TDs and 1 Int vs Oklahoma State. Boykin is finally putting it together for the Horned Frogs and quietly having a great season. TCU is in the middle of the Big 12 race and it may come down to the last week of the season to determine a Champion.
Marquise Williams, North Carolina: 38 of 47 for 390 yards, 4 TDs and 1 Int vs Georgia Tech. After 4 straight losses, the Junior helped his Tar Heels to their first Conference win. They have underperformed this season but it is not too late to finish strongly.
Royce Freeman, Oregon: 29 carries for 169 yards, 4 TDs vs Washington. Oregon is back in the driver’s seat for the Pac-12 North Division title and if they win out, they will almost certainly be a part of the College Football Playoffs. They still have to face a Stanford team which seems to be a thorn in their side.
Devontae Booker, Utah: 32 carries for 229 yards, 3 TDs at Oregon State. The Junior from Sacramento, California wanted to make sure his Utes were still a factor for the South Division title. Their only loss came against Washington State (27-28).
Nick Chubb, Georgia: 30 carries for 202 yarsds, 2 TDs at Arkansas. The Freshman has played extremely well filling in for Todd Gurley and he doesn’t look like he will be slowing down. He made more of an impression with the rock than the Razorbacks and that intimidating O-line. Georgia controls their own destiny in the SEC East.
Andre Davis, USF: 6 receptions for 154 yards, 3 TDs at Tulsa. Needed to only catch 6 dimes and made 3 of them count for touchdowns. The Senior in his last two games has a total of 278 yards with 4 TDs.
Josh Doctson, TCU: 7 receptions for 225 yards, 2 TDs vs Oklahoma State to help his Horned Frogs keep their chances for a Big 12 Conference Title alive. Nevada to keep their Mountain West Conference Title hopes alive. Next they host Texas Tech and their potentially high flying offense.
None for this week but I am sure you are going to have something to say about this.
