Gurley rushed for 198 yards and three touchdowns -- on runs of 23, 18 and 51 yards -- in the Bulldogs' 45-21 win over Clemson in Week 1. He added another touchdown on a dazzling 100-yard kickoff return.
Mariota didn't have to play much in the Ducks' 62-13 thrashing of South Dakota. He completed 14 of 20 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns, and he added 43 yards and another TD on the ground.
Winston was 25-of-40 passing for 370 yards and a touchdown in the Seminoles' 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State, but he did throw two interceptions in the second quarter. He had a 28-yard touchdown run in the third quarter on a quarterback draw.
With Texas A&M facing its first game without Johnny Manziel, all Hill did was throw for 511 yards and three touchdowns in a 52-28 win at No. 9 South Carolina. Hill broke Manziel's record for passing yards in a game, and his 44 completions were the most in school history.
Despite not playing in the fourth quarter, Abdullah rushed for a career-high 232 yards -- including a 47-yard touchdown scamper -- in the Cornhuskers' 55-7 beatdown of Florida Atlantic. He also had a 9-yard reception.
