KSI Index Rating National Spread-QB of the Week

Gold Medal Award

After finishing in the Top-3 for the KSI Index Ratings National QB of the Week for the third week in a row, Russell Wilson of North Carolina State University has finally broken through and won the Award for weekend number four of the 2010 college football season.  Wilson, who was sensational in a 45-28 rout of Georgia Tech last Saturday, edged Stephen Garcia of South Carolina, who lost a tightly contested SEC tilt with rival Auburn, 35-27.  He is now on the Heisman Radar!

 

Wilson was 28-of-41 for 368-yards passing with three touchdowns and one interception, while running for 16 yards on nine carries.  Garcia was 15-of-21 passing for 235-yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.  Garcia also rushed for 21 yards on 10 carries with the deciding point of separation being Wilson rushed for a touchdown while Garcia did not.

 

Colin Kaepernick, a consistent finalist for the Spread-QB Award on a weekly basis so far this season finished a close third.  Kaepernick was 16-of-25 for 196 yards rushing while rushing for 82-yards on 17 carries in a key 27-13 victory over Non-AQ rival BYU.

 

The KSI Index Gold Medal Award is set up for a BCS Conference quarterback who faces another BCS Conference foe, or a Non-AQ quarterback who is facing a BCS Conference opponent or another Non-AQ opponent that is ranked in the Top-25.

Terrelle Pryor beat out the three-headed quartet from the University of Michigan to win the Silver Medal Award for the KSI Index (Spread-QB) National Quarterback of the Week Award.  It is important to note that the three headed quarterbacking monster from Wolverine country had a sensational showing considering both Denard Robinson and Tate Forcier were injured on the day.  The three (including #2 starter Devin Gardner) finished 23-of-26 for 255 yards passing and two touchdowns through the air.  The quartet also rushed for 184-yards on 15 carries, scoring three touchdowns rushing.

 

Pryor was equally effective going 20-of-26 on the day for 224-yards through the air, while rushing 7 times for 104-yards and 1 touchdown rushing.  When adding his four touchdowns through the air with his touchdown romp with his feet, the five touchdowns proved to be the difference maker.

 

It would have been interesting to see what Denard Robinson could have accomplished if he hadn’t been injured in the second quarter.  Robinson, in a little over a quarters worth of work, was 4-of-4 passing for 60 yards through the air while rushing 5 times for 129 yards.  He contributed two rushing touchdowns before his injury, which occurred on his longest rush of the day, a 36-yard scamper up the Michigan sideline.

Bryant Moniz of Hawaii wins the Bronze Medal Award this week for his dominating performance against Charleston Southern, a team the Rainbow-Warriors won 66-7.  Moniz was 19-of-27 for 395 yards and 6 touchdowns through the air on the day for a 252 QB-Rating.  Moniz also had two rushes for 20-yards, finishing in second place behind Terrelle Pryor.

 

Russell Wilson wins the Gold Medal Award for his play versus a BCS Conference opponent (Georgia Tech), Pryor wins the Silver Medal Award for his work versus a cup-cake Non-AQ opponent who was not ranked in the Top-25 (Eastern Michigan which has now lost 16 games in a row) and Moniz earns the Bronze Award for demolishing a FCS school in Charleston Southern.
