College Football All-Week 11 Team
Week 11 of the college football season provided many amazing performances from some of the sport's unknown. There was an ACC running back who broke a school record, a freshman cornerback who scored three touchdowns and a linebacker who seems like he'll fit better on the other side of the ball.
It was another interesting week, to say the least.
As we near the end of the regular season, players and teams are taking their level of performance to new heights. But which players were the best this week?
Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech
Much like last season, Thomas has struggled mightily throwing the football. He's thrown a combined 28 interceptions the last two seasons and is still completing less than 60 percent of his throws.
But in the most unlikely spot to succeed, the senior signal-caller completed 80.6 percent of his passes for 366 yards and two touchdowns in the Hokies' 42-24 win over Miami. Most importantly, he did not throw any interceptions.
It was a game in which Virginia Tech was a huge underdog and it was raining cats and dogs. Still, Thomas played flawless football and led his team to its best win of the season.
If only Frank Beamer's club could have played this way all season.
Andre Williams, Boston College
Williams was not going to let Boston College lose to New Mexico State. The senior running back carried the ball 30 times for 295 yards, which is a new school record. He also scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to seal the 48-34 victory over the Aggies.
Besides Williams breaking records, this performance gave the Eagles their first road win of the season, and now they're just one win away from qualifying for a bowl for the first time since 2010.
Shock Linwood, Baylor
If you weren't afraid of Baylor already, Linwood gave you another reason to fear its explosive offense. Without Lache Seastrunk and Glasco Martin, the freshman runner carried the ball 23 times for 182 yards in Baylor's 41-12 win over Oklahoma.
It seems like any player who gets thrown into this Baylor lineup ends up producing video game numbers. That's a sign of a wonderful coaching staff. Somebody needs a raise.
Cody Latimer, Indiana
Latimer was already considered one of the best wide receivers in Indiana history. In the Hoosiers' 52-35 win against Illinois, he had the best game of his career. The junior wideout set career highs with 11 receptions and 189 yards. He also caught three touchdowns, all of which either tied the game or gave Indiana the lead.
Latimer continues to climb up the school record book, and with performances like this, it won't be long before he's considered the greatest Hoosier receiver of all time.
Nelson Agholor, USC
The talented sophomore didn't light up the stat sheet offensively. In fact, he only caught four passes for 35 yards in USC's 62-28 win over California. However, he did provide a spark on special teams, returning one punt 75 yards and another 93 yards for touchdowns. Both scores came in the first half and allowed the Trojans to take a 41-14 lead into halftime.
USC has now won four of its last five games and remains in the hunt for a Pac-12 South division title.
Josh Harper, Fresno State
Harper had another big game for Fresno State, and the Bulldogs remain undefeated with a 48-10 win over Wyoming. The junior tight end caught nine passes for 159 yards, averaging more than 17 yards per reception.
He was the only receiver on either team to top 100 receiving yards and consistently proved he is a mismatch for Wyoming's defense.
In the last two games, Harper has a combined 26 receptions, 412 yards and two touchdowns.
Stanford's Offensive Line
Didn't we hear that Oregon's defensive line has gotten bigger and stronger?
It was no longer a weakness?
Stanford doesn't want to hear all that.
The Cardinal lined up and ran it straight at Oregon. You knew they were going to run the ball, they knew they were going to run the ball. So what? The Ducks still couldn't stop it.
The Cardinal pounded out 274 yards and kept a clean pocket for quarterback Kevin Hogan. The big uglies also didn't allow a single sack in the upset victory.
Give it up for Stanford!
Will Sutton, Arizona State
The Sun Devils defensive lineman is back!
The senior defensive tackle had arguably his best game of the season in a 20-19 win against Utah. He finished with nine tackles, one tackle for loss and intercepted a pass on Utah's last drive to seal the win for Arizona State.
Sutton has found himself over the last couple of weeks and has increased his level of play. The Sun Devils will need this type of production from him on a consistent basis if they are going to secure a Pac-12 South title.
Myles Jack, UCLA
Is he a linebacker or a running back?
Maybe he's Superman?
Myles Jack did a little bit of everything for the UCLA Bruins in their 31-26 win over the Arizona Wildcats. Not only did he have eight tackles, break up two passes and recover a fumble, but he also led the team in rushing with 120 yards and a touchdown.
It was jaw-dropping to see a player rush for a 66-yard touchdown on offense and then come in on defense to play linebacker. Jack was the player of the week in college football.
DeVon Edwards, Duke
The redshirt freshman cornerback was barely recruited coming out of high school. Well, he made many schools look foolish in a 38-20 win over North Carolina State.
Edwards became the only FBS player in the last 10 years to score three non-offensive touchdowns in a single game. He had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and then returned two interceptions back for scores.
What makes it even more impressive is that he's only started two games in his young career.
