1. Matt Corral, QB, Ole Miss (last week: 1): 381 passing yards, 34 rushing yards, one TD pass and a big win over Louisville.
2. Evan Neal, LT, Alabama (2): Played all but three snaps in a blowout of Miami.
3. Kevin Harris, RB, South Carolina (3): Did not play against Eastern Illinois due to illness.
4. Darian Kinnard, RT, Kentucky (5): Was stellar again in blowout of ULM, and particularly so as a run blocker.
5. Tank Bigsby, RB, Auburn (7): 138 yards from scrimmage, two touchdowns last week vs. Akron.
6. Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M (8): 19 touches, 137 yards in a win over Kent State.
7. Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU (14): Nine catches, 148 yards, three scores vs. UCLA.
8. Jerrion Ealy, RB, Ole Miss (6): Slow rushing start (3.1 yards per carry on 12 tries) but did add three catches for 51 yards.
9. Bryce Young, QB, Alabama (NR): 9.1 yards per attempt and four TDs on 38 attempts is a great first start.
10. John Metchie, WR, Alabama (11): Caught six balls for 76 yards and one touchdowns.
11. Kenyon Green, LT, Texas A&M (12): Excelled while playing all but six snaps last Saturday.
12. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas (9): Made uncharacteristic mistakes in Week One, but should bounce back.
13. Jalen Wydermyer, TE, Texas A&M (10): Was okay (four catches, 36 yards) in the opener.
14. JT Daniels, QB, Georgia (4): The numbers weren't inspiring (22-of-30, 135 yards, one interception) but the Bulldogs did win.
