    - An almost 4-1 TD to INT ratio and led the country in passing yards. He also threw only 85 incomplete passes on 325 attempts but still managed a solid 17.29 yards per completion. He was simply dominant all season. He could come back next season, but may elect to go pro after this season.

    - Sims is a senior and a 3-year starter for Virginia. He has improved each season with the Cavaliers. He finishes the 2014 regular season with just under a 2:1 TD/INT ratio.

    - Bodner is a senior who took over for Chase Rettig. He was much less likely to turn over the football, 21 turnovers compared with Rettig's 37. Redshirt freshman Tyrone Warren saw some action and could be the starter next season.

    - Tennessee found a game changer in Scott and the Volunteers had easily the biggest rise in the QB rankings this season. Scott not only led the ranked quarterbacks in rushing TD's, he tied the combined number for the other 11 players. He also had only 1 rushing fumble despite 131 carries. It will be interesting to see if Scott can improve on this performance over the next couple seasons.

    - Manziel took over for injured QB Jameill Showers and put together solid numbers for the Aggies. He led all ranked QB's with 19.36 yards per completion. He also had the second best TD:INT ratio, 24:11.

    - Williams took over for departed QB Bryn Renner and put up some impressive yards. His numbers were better than either season with Renner under center. Williams was second in passing yards but led the ranked quarterbacks in incomplete passes.

    - Berkstesser took over the QB role when Matty Mauk went down with an injury. For the most part he put up good numbers but was tied for the lead with 6 fumbles. Mauk will likely be the starting QB for Mizzou next season if he remains healthy.

    - Fields is the one of two freshmen quarterbacks to lead his team in number of attempts. His play was dramatically better than play Maryland received from C.J. Brown last season. He had solid numbers across the board but falls in rankings due to his low workload. He will be a player to watch next season.

    - Allen couldn't quite duplicate the effort of last year's starting QB Brandon Mitchell, but there was only a small drop. His biggest problem was turnovers and he led all ranked quarterbacks with 37 turnovers. He did finish third in passing yards and he also scored 26 total touchdowns.

    - Prescott lost some plays to reserve QB J.J. Prutt but was under center for most of the snaps this season. He didn't put up big numbers but MSU focused on limiting turnovers. Prescott had 13 turnovers compared with 21 by Tyler Russell in 2013. Pruitt may be the full-time starting QB next year, even if Prescott comes back for his senior year.

    #11

    - Somehow Days rushed the ball 128 times but did not find the end zone. This is unusual for a team running an option offense. The rest of his numbers were also down from last year and he had more turnovers than touchdowns in 2014. Despite his play at QB the Yellow Jackets are still ranked in the top 5 in the country.

    #12

    - Brosius struggled for the second straight season and NC State may be glad he used up his eligibility. A new coaching staff and a new QB might bring some bite back to the Wolfpack's passing attack.

    Manziel's avg is thanks to the emergence of Mike Evans at WR. Also, it should be noted that Manziel suffered a 4 week injury against Mizzou... So the Ags might have to start a true freshman against SC.

    I threw like more than half my INT's the last 3 games of the season with bordner. It will be a relief to have a competent QB for a few years soon.

    We are pleased with the way Sims' career has played out. We hope to get him over that 2:1 hurdle. It's amazing how far ahead of the curve Hotrod is compared to everybody else....

    Yeah I was really dialed in with McEvoy this season. The only disappointing thing was that 5 of those INTs came in one game. Without that McEvoy might have been a Heisman contender. I attribute my passing this season to being a lot more patient and not going for the big chunks all the time. While I certainly have hit the big play we do a lot of chain moving and getting into a groove completing passes.
