OFFENSE

QB
Houston QB Case Keenum completed 45-of-69 passes for 532 yards and three scores in the TicketCity win over Penn State.

RB. Baylor RB Terrance Ganaway ran 21 times for 200 yards and five scores in the Valero Alamo Bowl win over Washington.

RB Stanford RB Stephfan Taylor ran 34 times for 177 yards and two touchdowns and caught three passes for 21 yards in the Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma State.

WR West Virginia WR Tavon Austin caught 12 passes for 123 yards and four scores in the Orange Bowl in the win over Clemson.

WR Western Michigan WR Jordan White caught 13 passes for 265 yards and a score in the Little Caesars Bowl loss to Purdue.

TE  Louisiana-Lafayette TE Ladarius Green caught five passes for 121 yards and a score in the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl win over San Diego State.

OL West Virginia LT Don Barclay in the Orange Bowl in the win over Clemson. Someone on the Mountaineer offensive line has to be mentioned. Barclay led the way for a front five that didn’t allow a sack and kept Geno Smith clean.

OL Baylor OG Cameron Kaufhold was one of the main reasons hole after hole opened up for Terrance Ganaway in the Valero Alamo Bowl win over Washington. He threw the key block on two of the bigger touchdown runs.

OL Stanford OT Jonathan Martin in the Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma State. Lost in the brilliant game from Andrew Luck and the wild ending was a dominant game from Martin and the Cardinal offensive line. Guard David DeCastro could also be here.

OL William Vlachos C Alabama in the BCS Championship win over LSU. LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers had a big game, but Vlachos and the Tide interior effectively won the battle the offense had to have by neutralizing the Tiger tackles.

OL Oregon LT Darrion Weems and LG Carson York in the Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin. The right side was great; the left side was better. Time and again, these two did just enough to let the speed backs turn the corner.

KR Purdue’s Raheem Mostert returned two kickoffs for 124 yards with a momentum-changing 99-yard score in the win over Western Michigan in the Little Caesars Bowl.

PK Louisiana-Lafayette PK Brett Baer missed an extra point and got another blocked, but he hit a 22-yard field goal along with the 50-yard game-winner. He also put three of his four punts – averaging 36.8 yards - inside the 20 including two at the one, in the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl win over San Diego State.
