    [​IMG]Here are five helmet stickers for a job well done this week. All outstanding performances. It wasn't too difficult to pick this week. They all are extremely deserving.

    [​IMG]Cyrus Gray, RB, Texas A&M: Gray broke two of the biggest plays in Texas A&M’s season, scoring on runs of 84 and 48 yards as part of a 223-yard day on the ground. No Aggies running back has ever run for more on the Longhorns, and Texas A&M’s 24-17 win guaranteed a losing record for the rival Longhorns for the first time since 1997.

    Rex Burkhead, RB, Nebraska: Burkhead took his share of snaps at quarterback, but usually his role is a runner in that situation. Not against Colorado. Burkhead tossed a pair of touchdown passes for a quarterback rating of 556, and also ran for 101 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Nebraska’s 45-17 win over Colorado.

    Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State: Who cares if it was against North Texas? Only one player (Nebraska RB Roy Helu Jr vs. Missouri) has had a better rushing day this season than Thomas, who pounded a huge stamp on the Wildcats regular-season finale with a 270-yard, two-touchdown performance in a 49-41 win over the Mean Green.

    Taylor Potts, QB, Texas Tech: In his last game at Jones AT&T Stadium, Potts had one of his best. He completed 32-of-46 passes for 373 yards and four touchdowns. His big day pushed him over 3,000 yards for the year, too. That gave the Red Raiders a 3,000-yard passer for the 11th consecutive season.

    Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: Jones hit a pair of long touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to give Oklahoma a 47-41 win over Oklahoma State, and passed for 468 yards and four touchdowns on 37-of-62 passing. Those attempts seem high until Oklahoma's 107 plays from scrimmage are also considered. Here's how Jones and the Sooners did it. Those 468 yards also tied Sam Bradford for a school record.
