2023 College Football season: Top performers from Week 7

Week 7 of the college football season is in the books and it was another memorable day of football across the country, with big performances from some of the game's brightest stars.

The action started on Tuesday and Wednesday night to whet our appetite, followed by a Saturday slate that delivered a ton of excitement.

Over the course of the day we had some bad beats, unlikely upsets and terrific wins for programs that made a statement.

With Week 7 behind us, it’s time to look at the top performers from the last few days across the college football landscape.

Michael Penix Jr, QB - Washington

The Game of the Year to date took place on Saturday between the Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies and it certainly lived up to the hype.

At the center of it all was Michael Penix Jr., who made a massive Heisman statement in the biggest game of his career.

The Washington quarterback threw for 302 yards and four touchdown passes en route to a 36-33 victory over the Ducks at home.

This immediately impacted Penix’s Heisman Trophy odds, as he is now the odds-on favorite in this market at -150 to win the award.

He also had a “Heisman Moment” in leading a two-play drive to score the go-ahead touchdown with under two minutes remaining.

Penix should continue to put up gaudy numbers for the remainder of the season as part of a Washington offense that is an absolute machine and will score in bunches.

Jayden Daniels, QB - LSU

While the LSU Tigers have played their way out of the College Football Playoff picture, Jayden Daniels is quietly having an outstanding season under center.

The Tigers quarterback has been on a tear in recent weeks and added to his burgeoning Heisman resume on Saturday with a dominant showing against Auburn, completing 75% of his passes for 325 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Tigers’ 48-18 victory at home.

Daniels is also a terror with his legs, as he ran for 93 yards on 11 carries in a game where that element of his repertoire wasn’t needed all that much.

Just last week against Missouri, we saw Daniels rush for 130 yards on 15 carries, to go along with 259 passing yards and 3 touchdowns.

Time will tell if LSU can still take down Alabama and win the SEC West, but with the way Daniels is playing, it can’t be ruled out.

Keon Coleman, WR - Florida State

Last, but certainly not least we have Keon Coleman, who had another tremendous day to build on his terrific season at Florida State.

The Michigan State transfer has become the main focal point in the Seminoles’ passing attack as part of a tandem with All-ACC caliber wideout Johnny Wilson.

Coleman took over that top wide receiver spot at the start of the season and Florida State hasn’t looked back since. 

With Florida State needing to make a statement on Saturday, Coleman hauled in 9 catches for 140 yards, including a one-handed grab that will surely be on every highlight reel at the end of the season.

Coleman finished with an impressive average of 15.6 yards per reception as part of a blowout victory over Syracuse for the Seminoles.

It was a phenomenal effort from a player who could prove to be very important to FSU’s success as the most important weeks of the season draw closer.
