Top Performers: TCU's Boykin, Arizona State's Carrington, Georgia's McKenzie
TCU’s Trevone Boykin may be the most versatile quarterback in college football. After throwing for 599 yards in his previous two contests, Boykin used his legs on Saturday, churning for 123 yards and three rushing touchdowns against Kansas State. Run, pass -- he did it all in the 41-20 blowout of the Wildcats. The victory ended Kansas State’s five-game winning streak and prepped sixth-ranked TCU to jump in the College Football Playoff selection on Tuesday.

Lloyd Carrington took the fight out of the 10th-ranked Irish with his 58-yard interception return in the fourth quarter to seal the 55-31 victory for No. 9 Arizona State. The Sun Devils dominated for most of the first half but a resurgent Notre Dame rallied from down 34-10 to come within three points in the fourth. Carrington’s timely interception came off a bobbled catch, off the fingertips of Notre Dame’s Corey Robinson. His was one of five turnovers forced by the Arizona State defense on the day. The Sun Devils (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12) face conference opponent Oregon State on Saturday.
Georgia’s Isaiah McKenzie set the tempo early, returning the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown against Kentucky to give the 20th-ranked Bulldogs an early lead. In the third quarter, he danced his way for a 59-yard punt return for a touchdown. Kentucky would fight back, but McKenzie and the Bulldogs proved too strong in the 63-31 rout.
