Three Stars of College Football: Week 13


1) Kedon Slovis, QB, USC

37/47, 515 Yds, 4 TD

Slovis has impressed since taking over for JT Daniels in the first week of the season, but he had his best performance of the season in a 52-35 rivalry game win over UCLA on Saturday. His 515 passing yards are the most in a single game in USC history, eclipsing Matt Barkleys 493 yard game in 2012. For the third straight week, Slovis completed 70 percent of his passes while throwing for over 400 yards and four touchdowns. The Trojans had four receivers go over 100 yards, and all four of them had at least six receptions, led by Michael Pittman Jr’s 13. USC doesn’t have another regular-season game left to play, but will make a bowl game, and they can still make the Pac-12 championship game if Utah loses to Colorado

2) Jayden Daniels, QB, Arizona State

22/32, 408 Yds, 3 TD

Speaking of freshmen Pac-12 QBs, Daniels helped Arizona State end a four-game losing streak and put a huge dent in the conference playoff hopes with a 31-28 win against Oregon. He completed his first 12 passes of the game, had eight completions of 17 yards or more, and passed for three touchdowns and no interceptions for the third consecutive game. His touchdown pass to Brandon Aiyuk with three minutes left sealed the game for the Sun Devils, who became bowl eligible for the third consecutive season. Arizona State faces Arizona next week in a battle for the Territorial Cup.

3) Jaret Patterson, RB, Buffalo

32 Att, 192 Yds, 4 TD; 3 Rec, 35 Yds, TD

Buffalo needed to respond after a tough loss to Kent State last week, and they did what they needed to do in a 49-30 win over Toledo on Wednesday night. Patterson scored in every quarter, and his five total touchdowns tied a MAC record for individual touchdowns in a game, while also becoming the first Buffalo player to accomplish the feat. The Bulls are bowl eligible for the third straight season after the victory, but still have to face Bowling Green next week.
