CFB “All Week 2 Team” – Quarterbacks

The second week of College Football season often gets overshadowed by the return of the NFL.  And this year was no different. But we did have a few top 25 matchups and some excellent individual performances to keep us in our seats while we patiently waited for the big guns.

With many teams playing inferior competition, there were two clear standout QBs who put the team on their back.

First Team 

Matt Johnson, Bowling Green (W 48-27 at Maryland) 

36/55   491 yds   6 TDs   1 INT    172.8 Rating

Lights. Camera. MACtion. The 5th year senior had a big game in Week 1 against a ranked Tennessee team, keeping his MAC school in contention for most of the day, while throwing for over 400 yards.  Tennessee pulled away late. However, when the 4th quarter rolled around this weekend against Maryland, the Falcons second Power 5 opponent in as many weeks, Johnson took his game to another level.  In a tie game with 10 minutes remaining, Johnson proceeded to toss 3 TDs over the next 5 minutes and put the Terps away on their home turf.

Second Team

Luke Falk, Washington St. (W 37-34 at Rutgers)

47/66   478 yds   4 TDs   0 INTs      152.0 Rating 

Not only did he win the game, more impressively Falk left the RU campus without an STD

66 passing attempts.  And no, this game did not go into overtime. Mike Leach (WSU head coach) likes to throw the ball. A lot. He essentially created the offense attack known as the “Air Raid”.

But it wasn’t just the gaudy numbers that earned Falk this second team spot.  After 2 late special team scores from Rutgers put the Scarlet Knights ahead, Falk engineered a 10-play, 90 yard drive punctuated by an 8-yard TD strike with 13 seconds on the clock.

Quarterback is a highly scrutinized position, so when you come up big in the clutch, Squabble Sports gonna recognize.
