5. Levi Williams – Wyoming (LW: 4)
The versatility is what puts Williams here as he has thrown for 220 yards per game but has just one touchdown pass, however, his rushing attack is what sets him apart with a pair of touchdowns and while only 69 yards in two games. His threat to run helps open up the offense for Wyoming.
4. Jake Haener – Fresno State (LW: 8)
This is a big jump once Haener got things going after his first game to second game Haener is third in the league with four touchdown passes on the year and against Colorado State had three touchdowns to boost his status within the league. Game 3 could be a telling point about if Haener’s jump is warranted.
3. Nick Starkel – San Jose State (LW: 5)
Another big jump and this could be two low, especially if Boise State has more playing time in store for Jack Sears. Starkel had the best game with 467 yards and five touchdowns. He is only chasing Nevada’s Carson Strong in most categories. Starkel will be in the running for the top quarterback in this league and with that will help San Jose State win some more games.
2. Hank Bachmeier / Jack Sears – Boise State (LW: 2)
This is sort of cheating by putting both Bachmeier and Sears together but that is what this season is producing. There are multiple quarterbacks playing for each team and there is no reason for why Bachmeier didn’t play but Sears stepped in and had one heck of a debut by completing 82.6% of his passes and 291 yards, three touchdowns and averaged 12.7 yards per attempt.
1. Carson Strong – Nevada (LW: 1)
Right now the gap between Strong and the rest of the league is quite far. Nick Starkle and whoever at Boise State suits up is sort of nearby but right now it is Strong and not close. In his two games, he has no interceptions, six touchdowns and 76% of his passes. It is too early to talk national awards but if Strong keeps throwing near 400 yards per game then he needs to get some consideration.
