Marcus Mariota

QB | Oregon

Mariota returns to action Thursday night in Oregon's biggest challenge this season: a visit to No. 5 Stanford. Mariota's adjusted QBR is second only to Baylor's Bryce Petty and he's the only quarterback in the country not to have thrown an interception this season. His 9.1 yards per carry is also best in the nation.

Jameis Winston

QB | Florida State

Winston is throwing the highest percentage of touchdowns per pass this season (11.3 percent) and trails only Bryce Petty and Marcus Mariota in Total QBR. He also leads FBS with a 99.6 Total QBR on third down. The Seminoles overtook Oregon at No. 2 in the BCS standings but the competition lessens the rest of the way; none of FSU's remaining regular-season opponents has a winning record.

Johnny Manziel

QB | Texas A&M

Manziel and the Aggies shook off a slow start -- their first three-and-out on a first drive in 19 games, along with a couple of early missteps -- to throttle UTEP. Manziel left the game in the third quarter, but not before throwing four touchdown passes to three different receivers. He also darted through the Miners defense for a 49-yard TD run that looked like vintage Manziel.

Bryce Petty

QB | Baylor

The competition ratchets up for Baylor with a visit from No. 10 Oklahoma on Thursday night presenting the first real test for the Bears. Petty leads the nation in Total QBR and his yards per attempt (13.9) and yards per completion (20.1) are on track to break national records. The going doesn't get any easier for Baylor after playing the Sooners; the Bears finish the regular season with Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas.

AJ McCarron

QB | Alabama

Alabama's national championship last season would not have been possible had it not been for the Tide's game-winning drive against LSU. McCarron engineered that drive and will look to keep Bama on track for a three-peat when the Tigers visit Tuscaloosa on Saturday. He's completing a career-high 69.4 percent of his passes this season.
