ESPN Total QB Rating

Just when you think you know who’s good and who is not, we have a season when the tables are turned upside down. No surprise Trevone Boykin leads the nation, or that a Baylor system QB is second. Too bad Seth Russell is hurt, giving TCU the edge in Baylor’s only tough game on their schedule. But after a rough 2014 both Marquise Williams, Brandon Harris, and Joshua Dobbs have finally cut down on turnovers and mental errors to climb toward the top of the rankings.
Much heralded Miami QB Brad Kaaya hovers in the middle of the rankings. Penn State’s good looking Christian Hackenberg remains near the cellar, though in recent weeks has moved from a ranking in the 100’s to the 90’s – passing Georgia Tech QB Justin Thomas, who has been called on the pass more than he should. Justin hasn’t played well, but his rank is still comparable to the beloved Josh Nesbitt. Even Vandy’s awful Johnny McCrary is ranked above Thomas.
If you’d asked a Georgia fan in August if they’d be happy to have their new quarterback ranked in the top 25% in the nation - ahead of the quarterbacks from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, South Carolina, Kentucky, Texas A&M, and Missouri – most would’ve said yes. As long as they were undefeated, of course.
