3. Ka'Deem Carey, Arizona

Key stats: Carey did just that, rushing 48 for 206 with four touchdowns in a 42-16 upset of Oregon.

The buzz: The magnitude of the upset helps Carey rank especially high. He's also maintaining a season-long streak of 100-yard games and ripped the Ducks for his second 200-yard game of the year.

2. Keenan Reynolds, Navy

Key stats: Reynolds ran 36 times for 240 yards with seven touchdowns in a 58-52 win over San Jose State.

1. Andre Williams, Boston College

Key stats: Williams carried 32 times for 263 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-26 win over Maryland.
