Not many Power 5 quarterbacks have thrown for at least 14 touchdowns and 950 yards with a QB rating of at least 190 in a three-game stretch since 2000. As you can see by the numbers in the parentheses  below, half of them have done their damage in their team’s first four games when powder puffs are more likely to be played. The other half have achieved this feat in the more difficult middle or last parts of the season:

QB Year School Completions Attempts % Yards TD Int Rating
Seth Russell ( Gms 1-3) 2015 Baylor 50 80 62.5 995 15 4 218.9
Sam Bradford (2-4) 2008 Oklahoma 66 93 71 1110 14 2 216.6
Geno Smith (2-4) 2012 West Virginia 109 133 82 1405 16 0 210.4
Jared Goff (2-4) 2014 California 59 94 62.8 1067 14 2 203

Josh Fields, who is head and shoulders above the rest in terms of hot-streak QB rating, ended up playing for the Chicago White Sox.

As a bonus, you’ll receive a full breakdown of all Division I quarterbacks to ever achieve this three-game feat.  Six other quarterbacks from “mid-major” programs have also done the deed. As you can imagine, guys like Case Keenum and Colt Brennan rank awfully high…
