1. Patrick Mahomes II, junior QB, Texas Tech

Mahomes put on a show against disappointing Baylor, throwing for an eye-popping 586 yards and six touchdowns. Mahomes filled up the stat sheet while leading his Red Raiders to a huge 54-35 victory.

2. Skyler Howard, senior QB, West Virginia

Howard led the way against Iowa State, throwing for 330 yards and five touchdown passes. West Virginia could not be stopped all day, and Howard led the Mountaineers to a 49-19 blowout against the Cyclones.

3. Keke Coutee, sophomore WR, Texas Tech

Texas Tech players dominated Big 12 play last week, and Coutee was one of them. He hauled in eight catches for 221 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80-yard reception. Coutee has had a solid sophomore season thanks to his strong-armed quarterback, Mahomes.

4. KD Cannon, junior WR, Baylor

Cannon added to his impressive 2016 season with 12 receptions for 132 yards and two touchdowns against Texas Tech. Cannon’s efforts were not enough as the Bears dropped another game on the season in a 54-35 loss to the Red Raiders.

5. Dylan Cantrell, junior WR, Texas Tech

Yes, another Texas Tech player and receiver in the top 10. Cantrell had nine receptions for 111 yards and two touchdowns Saturday. He has had a quiet but strong sophomore year for the Red Raiders.

6. Terence Williams, sophomore RB, Baylor

Williams had a big day Saturday with 23 carries for 147 yards and two touchdowns. There were many touchdowns scored in the game between Baylor and Texas Tech, but Williams’ performance wouldn’t be enough to beat the Red Raiders.

7. Shelton Gibson, junior WR, West Virginia

Gibson helped lead the way in a 49-19 rout of Iowa State with a big receiving performance. Gibson had only three catches, but for 161 yards and two touchdowns, including a 71-yard reception.

8. Ishmael Zamora, sophomore WR, Baylor

Zamora, who’s made a bad name for himself after his three-game suspension earlier this year, had a strong performance Saturday with 12 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown in the loss to Texas Tech.

9. Martell Pettaway, freshman RB, West Virginia

Pettaway had his way with the Cylcones on Saturday, pounding the rock 30 times for 181 yards and a score. Pettaway helped balance the West Virginia offense with his ground game to shut down the Cyclones.

10. Zach Smith, freshman QB, Baylor

Smith has had a good few games this year for the Bears, as he threw for 377 yards, three touchdowns and an interception Saturday against Texas Tech. Smith had to come in a few weeks ago for senior quarterback Seth Russell after he suffered a season-ending ankle injury.
