Another college football week in the books and more transfers making a huge impact. Here are some standouts from week eight that stood out to me.
1. QB Jayden Daniels, LSU
During a win over previously unbeaten Ole Miss, Daniels (Arizona State) completed 21 of 28 passes for 248 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 121 yards and three touchdowns on 23 carries.
2. RB Dae Dae Hunter, Liberty
The Hawaii transfer rushed for 213 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries and had four receptions for 31 yards during a 41-14 victory over BYU.
3. QB Bo Nix, Oregon
Nix (Auburn) completed 22 of 28 passes for 283 yards and five touchdowns, while also rushing for 51 yards during a 45-30 victory over previously unbeaten UCLA. He’s been exceptional since the game one loss to Georgia.
4. WR Malik Heath, Ole Miss
While suffering their first loss of the season at LSU, wide receiver Malik Heath (Mississippi State) had eight receptions for 145 yards and was dominant.
5. QB Michael Penix Jr., Washington
The Indiana transfer completed 36 of 51 passes for 374 yards and two touchdowns in a win over Cal.
