4. QB Braxton Miller, Ohio State, So.
Ohio State sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller is growing up quickly in Urban Meyer's offense.

Last week: 16 of 30 passing for 249 yards, four TDs and one INT; 12 rushes for 75 yards and one TD in a 35-28 win at Cal.
Season (three games): 48 of 78 passing for 611 yards, seven TDs and two INTs; 56 rushes for 377 yards and five TDs.
Watchman's take: When he was on, he was jaw-droppingly good. The highlights: a 55-yard touchdown run when Miller juked safety Alex Logan, and an improvised game-winning 72-yard TD strike to Devin Smith. But Miller was also inconsistent during stretches, including a third quarter in which he directed the Buckeyes on four drives, the longest of which went eight yards. In what's a positive sign as OSU looks for a running option outside Miller, he didn't lead the team in carries against Cal.
Next up: Saturday vs. UAB
