Avinash Kunnath, Pacific Takes & California Golden Blogs: Taylor Kelly made good decision after good decision, executing the ASU offense to perfection. Utah's defense was supposed to be their strength this year, and Kelly never allowed them the chance to breathe in the first half. Kelly has the Sun Devils halfway to bowl eligibility and looks like he's going to be the perfect man for Todd Graham's offense.

Jon Woods, Ralphie Report: I'll have to go with Sean Mannion. 24-35 for 379 yards and 2 touchdowns on the road at UCLA is quite the performance. While the Beavers didn't score a whole lot of points against the Badgers, it's has play that has lead Oregon State to an improbable 2-0 start.

Trevor Wong, Conquest Chronicles: Jordan Webb. Leading your team back from a 17-point deficit on the road in the final seven minutes is pretty darn good. He capped off the Buffaloes' comeback with a 4-yard run to give his team their first win of the season. Hey, Colorado is also tied for first place in the South division, too.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Jordan Webb - He battled despite being down late in the game, put up huge numbers and served as a leader to a team that looked absolutely broken all season until late in the game. Also, his game-winning touchdown run on fourth down is the most clutch play of the Pac-12 season thus far.

JazzyUte, Block U: Jordan Webb. Great grit leading Colorado to a huge conference win on the road. Who woulda thought the Buffaloes would be tied for first in the Pac-12 South? Yeah, it ain’t gonna last, but still!

Ryan Rosenblatt, Bruins Nation: Jordan Webb had a nice line, 29-for-42 for 345 yards and two touchdowns so he's in the conversation on that alone, but Colorado won! That's worth more points than anyone else in the conference could get. That he took his team down the field, called an audible on fourth down and scored the winning touchdown just makes it that much better.

David Piper, Addicted to Quack: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu. Arizona decided that they weren't going to throw the ball to Terrance Mitchell. Instead, they tried to pick on Ifo. He responded with two interceptions, one being in the red zone and the other a pick six, and three pass deflections. That's quite a day for a cornerback.

Scott Allen, Rule of Tree: Jordan Webb. Gave Buffs fans their first reason to cheer this season by leading a dramatic comeback win at Wazzu.

AndyPanda, Building the Dam: Brandin Cooks. His speed torched a UCLA secondary that has some very good athletes in it several times. And Oregon St. hasn't been stretching the field very much for some time now. Cooks changed the game, and signaled a changing of times with the Beaver offense.

UteCentral, Ute Football Central & Pacific Takes: Arizona State's Taylor Kelly could do no wrong against Utah while passing for a career high 326 yards against a supposedly talented Ute defense. Kelly toyed with the Utah defense and seemed to know and exploit every weakness available the Utes had to offer. Normally the Ute's are able to rattle opposing quarterbacks with their blitz and pressure packages, but Kelly seemed unfazed by any of it all night long.

awbutler, Pac Hoops & Pacific Takes: I’m jumping back on the OSU bandwagon and handing my POW award to big Sean Mannion and his baby giraffe legs. And cannon arm. He was cool in the pocket and made all the right plays; particularly in the first half. Biggon was impressive in the most significant win of the weekend.

Justin Karp, Pacific Takes & Bold Saguaros: Undoubtedly, this goes to Arizona State's Chris Young. A junior JuCo transfer from Arizona Western, Young had his coming-out party at Sun Devil Stadium against Utah. He recorded 8 tackles (6 solo, 2.5 TFL) and 1.5 sacks. He and Will Sutton generally turned Utah's potent offense into an utter derpfest.
