With Trevor Lawrence off, who rises to number one?
10. Malik Willis, Liberty
The Auburn transfer has lit up opposing defenses in his first two games with the Liberty Flames. In two outings, Willis has a 72.5% completion rate for 418 yards and 2 TDs passing with a further 253 yards and 3 TDs rushing. The ultimate dual threat, Willis has led Liberty to a 2-0 record thus far and is looking more and more comfortable with each week. Liberty has an excellent shot at proving themselves against the big boys starting with a week 5 matchup at Syracuse.
9. Matt Corral, Ole Miss
Kyle Trask wasn't the only one with a big night. Corral replaced John Rhys Plumlee as starter in Lane Kiffin's debut and showed why he was the preferred choice. Despite a losing effort, Matt Corral owned the Florida defense, completing 71% of his passes for 395 yards and 3 TDs rounding it out with 59 yards rushing. Ole Miss hasn't had a QB of note since possibly Chad Kelly or even Bo Wallace so to see Corral immediately make a difference is a good sign for the Rebels.
8. Zach Wilson, BYU
Quarterback U has another phenom behind center in Zach Wilson. The Cougars are currently outscoring opponents 103-10 through 2 games and show no signs of slowing down. Wilson's stat line is mighty impressive after a win over Troy, completing 82.1% of his passes for 392 yards and 2 TDs passing and 2 rushing. Were BYU to have kept its original schedule, Zach Wilson would be making Heisman waves.
7. Skylar Thompson, Kansas State
Thompson replaces Oklahoma's Spencer Rattler on this list after leading the upset of the #3 Sooners this week. Thompson impressed with his poise despite coming in 0-1 after losing to Arkansas State. With 3 scores on the ground and a further 334 yds and TD passing, Skylar Thompson's performance bodes well for K-State's Big 12 chances.
6. K.J. Costello, Mississippi State
Mike Leach dialed up SIXTY passes in this one; air raid in the SEC is HOT. The Stanford transfer balled out in a major upset of #6 LSU in Baton Rouge. Not only did Costello pull off the upset, he also shattered the SEC passing record after throwing for 623 yards and 5 TDs. Costello may give Trask a run for his money as most improved SEC QB this year.
5. Bo Nix, Auburn
The Sophmore silenced doubters with a strong showing in a ranked opening matchup. After spotty performances in his freshmen season, Nix did not disappoint in game one. Nix spread the ball around and allowed his playmakers to do what they do best. Going 16/27 for 233 yards and 3 TDs was enough to top #23 Kentucky 29-13.
4. D'Eriq King, Miami
King's Hurricanes squad obliterated a hapless FSU team 52-10 to improve to 3-0. King went 29/40 with 267 yards and 2 TDs with another 65 on the ground. So far he is averaging the best completion percentage of his career at 67%. While lauded for his dual threat ability, D'Eriq King has proven he is a more than capable passer.
3. Kyle Trask, Florida
What an impressive showing from second year starter Kyle Trask. Trask torched Ole Miss' defense to the tune of 30/42 for 416 yards and 6 TDs! This might be early to say but Kyle Trask is this year's Joe Burrow. His development from year 1 to year 2 was amazing to witness. With his strong performance, Florida looks to be the early front-runner for SEC East title.
2. Dillon Gabriel, UCF
Possibly the hottest QB in the country right now, Gabriel had another huge night against East Carolina putting his combined stats at 59/88 for 825 yards and 8 touchdowns. The Knights are crushing the competition currently and look poised to run the table against their AAC slate. Whether Gabriel can outscore every opponent is yet to be seen.
1. Sam Ehlinger, Texas
Sam has been lights out over the past two games, going a combined 52/73 for 688 yards and 10 touchdowns passing with 81 yards and a rushing TD. Ehlinger is a tremendous leader on the field, pulling off the come from behind win against TTU this week. The rest of the Texas team must match his efforts if they want to reach the playoff however.
