    QB: Paul Jones (Penn State)

    Jones has a reason to smile as he finds himself back on the POTW list after missing out last week. Paul led his team to a 35-31 victory over Pitt and played possibly his best game to date this year, going 17-23 for 367 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT. While the 1 INT will still worry the coaches in Penn State, Paul Jones looks like he has turned a corner this year and is starting to make smarter decisions, as his accuracy is way up and his interceptions per game (at least for this week) is way down. Can Jones continue this and climb up the Heisman boards?


    HB: Marcus Coker (Iowa)

    Coker is another guy who has been on this list before. Marcus dominated North Carolina this week to the tune of 26 carries for 242 yards and 2 touchdowns as Iowa beat North Carolina 38-24. Marcus has been on an absolute tear to start the year and it is no surprise that he has led his team to a 3-0 start to the season. If Coker can continue to tear it up on the ground look for Iowa to really make a strong run towards a BCS Bowl game come year's end. Special mention to Michigan State's Nick Hill who ran for 227 yards on 20 carries and 2 touchdowns in the Spartans 38-28 loss to Notre Dame.


    WR: Chad Hunter (Arizona State)

    When opposing defenses face Arizona State they certainly have to know where Tal Walstead is at all times. The halfback opens up space in the secondary for the wide receivers to exploit, and boy did Hunter take advantage this week. Hunter ended the day with 7 catches for 176 yards and a touchdown as Arizona State edged by TCU 35-28. More weeks like this one and the Sun Devils will start to dream of get a hand on that Pac 10 championship trophy. Special shoutout to POTW favorite Charles Torwudzo who had 6 catches for 124 yards and a score.


    DEF: Bobby Robinson (Cal)

    The cornerback from Cal finds himself on the list for the very first time. In Cal's 28-21 win over Purdue the 6'1 corner was all over the field, ending the day with 9 tackles and 2 interceptions. His overall play was a leading factor in Cal's win this week, and if he continues to show off his ball-hawk skills then opposing QBs might stop throwing in his direction. Special mention to Michigan State's FS Isiah Lewis, who ended the day with 11 tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble.

    The only reason Coker had so many touches was because UNC's pass defense was lights out. I usually like to limit his touches a little more, but they were bringing the heat all game and stacked the box quite often. His big TD run, they were brining the house, but forget to plug all the holes.
