|Kliff Kingsbury||Todd Monken||Philip Montgomery||Chad Morris|
|Kliff Kingsbury – University of Houston|
With quarterback Case Keenum at the helm of Kliff Kingsbury’s offense, the Cougars’ offense has been prolific this season. Houston is leading the nation in scoring offense, total offense and passing offense. The numbers are almost silly (see Key Stats below). Keenum, now the NCAA’s all time leader in touchdown’s thrown, is completing 73% of his passes and has thrown for more than 4,200 yards and has 38 TDs. Their top 3 running backs all average well over 5 yards per carry and their top 5 receivers all average over 10 yards per reception. Did we mention they are putting up over 53 points per game?

|1st in Total Offense (618 YPG)||1st in Third Down Conversions (56%)|
|1st in Plays of 40+ yards (31)||1st in Passing Plays of 50+ yards (14)|
|Todd Monken – Oklahoma State University|
At times this season, Todd Monken’s offense at Oklahoma State has looked unstoppable. The Cowboys are averaging nearly 50 points per game. Through 11 games, they have 82 plays that went for over 20 yards (#2 in the nation). Even went they don’t explode for big plays, it’s hard to stop them (#7 in 3rd down conversion %). Monken’s quarterback (who he also coaches) Brandon Weeden has completed 73 percent of his passes for 34 touchdowns and averages nearly 375 yards per game in the air. On the receiving end, Justin Blackmon has nearly 1,250 yards receiving and 15 TDs. Protection wise they are very sound as well, with the offensive line only allowing 1 per game. Oh, and on the ground, his top back is 30th in the nation in rushing. Solid.
|2nd in Scoring Offense (50 PPG)||3rd in Total Offense (563 YPG)|
|2nd in Passing Offense (402 YPG)||7th in Third Down Conversions (52%)|
|Philip Montgomery – Baylor University|
Baylor’s offense this season has shown exceptional balance and great speed. Currently #2 in total offense, the Bears are averaging over 200 yards per game on the ground and 370 per game through the air. Led by Heisman hopeful Robert Griffin III, this offense is scoring over 40 points per game and is leading the nation in passing efficiency. RG3 has thrown for 33 TDs vs. only 5 picks. He has thrown for over 3,500 yards, rushed for over 500, caught a pass down the middle in crunch time in their opening win over TCU and the man has punted twice.
|2nd in Total Offense (572 YPG)||5th in Passing Offense (370 YPG)|
|11th in Scoring Offense (41 PPG)||1st in Passing Plays 60+ Yards (9)|
|25th in Rushing Offense (203 YPG)||2nd in First Downs (28 per game)|
|Chad Morris – Clemson University|
The improvement Clemson’s offense has seen in Chad Morris’ first year is impressive. This season, Clemson is scoring over 35 points per game, is 12th in the nation in passing offense and 18th in total offense. In 2010, they were #83 in total offense and #77 in scoring offense (25 ppg). Clemson ranks #6 in plays of 50 or more yards this season; but they also consistently move the chains averaging 23 first downs per game.
|12th in Passing Offense (307 YPG)||18th in Total Offense (465 YPG)|
|21st in Scoring Offense (35 PPG)||6th in Plays of 50+ Yards (11)|
