Week 12 didn't look like it would be anything special on paper, but we got a few down-to-the-wire games and one major upset. Overall, it was a fun weekend.

As he does every week, ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit named his top performers for Week 12. Herbstreit typically picks five or six players and five or six team performances that stood out.

Here are Herbie's top five team performances from Week 12:

  1. Notre Dame
  2. Oklahoma State
  3. UCF
  4. Texas
  5. Nebraska/Wisconsin

Notre Dame, of course, rolled over No. 12 Syracuse. Oklahoma State knocked off a top 10 foe in West Virginia. UCF, Texas, Nebraska and Wisconsin all earned major wins as well.

Below are Herbstreit's list of individuals who stood out last weekend.

That is a quarterback heavy list, but you can't forget running backs Jonathan Taylor and Joshua Kelley, who put up eye-popping numbers in their team's wins.

There is now one week left in the regular season: Rivalry Week, which begins in a couple of days.
