Last Week: 21-of-24, 301 yards, three TDs, 1 INT; three rushes, zero yards in a 44-3 win over Tennessee Tech

Sure, Mallett's big opening game came against an FCS defense, but what more could Big Tex have done? Of the three passes he missed, only one was a legitimate incompletion (one was tipped to a defender, the other was a drop that should have been a touchdown). Mallett also showed no lingering effects from offseason foot surgery, and after facing criticism for being a statue in the pocket, he appears more comfortable running when pressured.

Next Up: Saturday vs. Louisiana Monroe
