  1. A short week, but the was definitely not short on mind-blowing performances! Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes, any and all non-MAC coaches are free to vote also.)
  2. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Blair Holcomb, Buffalo . 22 of 29, 350 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT. (W vs. N. Illinois) There were approximately 2984 Bulls players worthy of being featured here, but Buffalo's triggerman gets the nod. Holcomb was nearly flawless in an offensive exhibition versus the Huskies that pushed him to second place in the MAC for season passing yardage, and defensive coordinators are not looking forward to seeing him return for another season under center for the Bulls. Defensive Player of the Week: FS Nicholas Mingo, Miami (OH) . 6 tackles, 2 INT (W at Ball State) From Last Week's Awards: This is also Mingo's first POTW award and Miami hopes it isn't his last. So all you have to do is nab two interceptions every week in order to show up here every week. Simple! Mingo was again crucial to the RedHawks' victory. His two picks helped to place Ball State into a deep hole they couldn't recover from, and he is making a late push for All-Conference consideration. One or two more of these games might let him aim higher.... Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio . 4/4 FGs (made 40, 40, 35, 50), 2/2 XP (L vs. Arizona State) We GET it Timmy, you're really good! A shame Ohio couldn't get into field goal range just once more, as the Bobcats lost to the Sun Devils by two. You just know that Timmay would have come through in the clutch as he has so often in his career. He's just piling on to his record now - this is appearance number 11 for the senior placekicker, five of them in this season alone. Wilhelm should get a chance to latch on to an NFL team - he has clearly outplayed his scouting report. Congratulations to all the winners!

  4. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Chase Sims, W. Michigan 22 of 34, 295 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT, 2 rushes for 2 yards. (W vs Akron) In a highly-anticipated matchup against the Zips W. Michigan came out on top, and did so more comfortably than anyone expected. Sims was the catalyst for all that, completing nearly 65% of his passes to end up a nickel shy of 300 passing yards and 3 shiny touchdowns against no interceptions. This is Sims' first Player of the Week award, and a fine performance to get him there! Defensive Player of the Week: FS Nicholas Mingo, Miami (OH). 5 tackles, 2 INT (W at C. Michigan) The Redhawks seriously disrupted a Chippewa offense that had found itself over the last few weeks, and Best!Miami's free safety spearheaded the effort. Mingo picked Matt Rowland off twice and made Central Michigan pay dearly if any passes in the middle or deep third were even a fraction off-target. This is also Mingo's first POTW award and Miami hopes it isn't his last. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Nathaniel Layne, Bowling Green. 2/2 XPs, 4/5 FGs, (FG: made 44, 24, 38, 38 - missed 46) (L vs. Rice) It hasn't been the best year for Bowling Green, and it hasn't been the best year for its place kicker either. Last year's mid-season all-MAC selection has taken a step back this season (8 for 12 on FG attempts), but he did nearly everything he had to do against the visiting Owls and kept his team in it to the bitter end - hard to ask more than a 4 of 5 performance when that one miss was from long-range. This is not Layne's first POTW award ever, but it is his first for this year. Congratulations to all the winners!

  6. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Owen Walton, Ohio . 26 rushes for 124 yards, 1 TD (W vs. Kent State) Another strong performance from Owen. Freaking. WALTON. Rampaging all over the Kent State defense he ended up just shy of a buck and a quarter on the ground, and the Golden Flash defense got real tired real quick of having to tackle him run after bruising run. Walton is on pace for a 1350-yard regular season, yet this is somehow only his second ever Player of the Week award. Rough competition in the MAC! Defensive Player of the Week: OLB Donovan Pendleton, Ohio . 1 sack, 6 tackles (W vs. Kent State) Another Bobcat makes the list! The talented junior from Wonewoc, WI shows up here with an impressive defensive performance, introducing himself to John Garland and the rest of the Kent State offense repeatedly. While other nominees had similar statlines, we can only assume that Pendleton made it in over the others because he yelled at them really hard. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio . 3/3 FGs (made 29, 26, 35), 3/3 XP (W vs. Kent State) We're running out of things to say about Wilhelm, this is his FOURTH go-around as Player of the Week this season! Timmay is one of three kickers in the MAC still perfect on the year, and of those three he's converted the most field goals (17 of 17). They're not gimmes either; seven of them are from 40+ including a 41 and 46-yarder in their win over Kent State. Ohio is going to miss Timmay and his reliable leg when he graduates this year. (And also that makes a clean sweep of awards for the Bobcats. That's the THIRD time a team has done that this season, following Akron in Week 8 and Buffalo in Week 1.) Congratulations to all the winners!

  8. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Stephen Peters, Ohio. 20 of 31 for 250 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT. 5 rushes for 58 yards One of the more remarkable stories of this MAC season is the redemption of Stephen Peters. Last year he was seen as a caretaker QB, merely holding the spot until true freshman Austin Lowe arrived to take over. But coach @beeznik never lost faith in the junior, even going so far as to redshirt Lowe. Peters rewarded his faith with his best season yet, already surpassing last season's passing yardage and TD totals - and we're barely past halfway through the year! Oh, we haven't even talked about the game last week. Peters was magnificent, having perhaps his best game of the season against a tough Toledo team. He picked apart that formidable Toledo back seven, no easy feat. Defensive Player of the Week: SS Lucas Key, Ohio. 1 INT returned for a TD, 3 tackles. On its face it seems odd to say defense was vital in a 45-38 shootout, but the Bobcat offense weren't the ones doing all the scoring for Ohio. Strong safety Lucas Key made only his second statsheet of the season but he made it count with a pick-six of Toledo QB Benjamin Hanson. The Michigan native's interception helped tip a see-saw game in Ohio's favor for their second straight victory over the Rockets and, Key hopes, springboards the Bobcats to a second straight MAC East crown. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Trent Michaels, C. Michigan. 2/2 FGs (made 42, 44), 4/4 XPs. This is not what Michaels envisioned when he joined the Chippewas out of a Minnesota junior college. CMU was arguably a missed kick or two away from competing for the MAC title last season, but they've fallen on hard times so far this year. Michaels hasn't had many chances to showcase his strong leg with only five field goals attempted, but at least he's perfect on them all. He easily drilled a pair of 40+ yard kicks in the Chips' 34-10 stomping of Northern Illinois, and if coach @johnkirk really has Central Michigan's season turned around then Michaels will have plenty more chances to show off his expanded range. Congratulations to all the winners!

  10. Offensive Player of the Week: (tie) QB Zack Cera, Miami(OH). 26 of 41 for 330 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT QB John Garland, Kent State. 22 of 33 for 291 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 4 rushes for 19 yards No sister-kissing here, both of these players will happily take the honors seeing as how their performances led to wins for their teams. Zack Cera showed once again how hard it is to cool off the FLAMETHROWER with one of his best statlines to date. Meanwhile, John Garland just will not die. The true junior pulled his team to victory against an Akron team quickly learning to despise seeing "Flashes" on the jerseys across from them, with his best passing performance of the season. Defensive Player of the Week: (tie) SS Thomas Gordon, Buffalo, 9 Tackles CB Kai Hatcher, Buffalo, 1 INT, 3 Tackles The Buffalo secondary did WORK against the pass-happy Bruins from Los Angeles. While the Bulls offense was quietly efficient as usual it was the play of the defense that gave Buffalo the win, especially thumper Thomas Gordon and semi-maligned CB Kai Hatcher. Gordon set the tone for any receiver coming across the middle, and Hatcher took advantage of the Bruin receivers' sudden case of alligator arms to snag one of two Steven Gore INTs on the day. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Eric Jarvis, Miami(OH). 3/4 FG (made 35, 39, 21 -- missed 51), 4/4 XP Hey look, a non-tie! The voters obviously didn't hold anything against Jarvis for his miss from waaaaay downtown, but they did like that he kicked two huge field goals in the fourth quarter to finally put Best!Miami ahead for good against Bowling Green. If you're startled at just how young he looks, it's because you probably haven't seen his photo before - this is his first-ever POTW award. (Also, maybe we needed his mom's permission first ) Congratulations to all the winners!

  12. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Nathaniel Ruff, Akron - 26 rushes for 140 yards, 2 TD The most-hyped MAC game in week 8 was also its most entertaining, as Akron and Best!Miami gave us two periods of bonus football. There were a lot of players who made it happen on both teams, but perhaps none were more determined and integral than Ruff. The redshirt senior junior had his best game of the season when the Zips needed it most, averaging nearly 5.4 yards per carry(!). If there's one thing the MAC is known for it's producing excellent running backs, and sometimes this causes players to not get as much attention as they should - this is Ruff's first-ever weekly award. Defensive Player of the Week: DT Marlon Bailey, Akron - 1 Sack, 5 Tackles A victory like Akron's isn't due solely to the offense, the Zips defense had to keep the FLAMETHROWER ZACK CERA in check. And the man to do that? "The Eater of Worlds" himself, Marlon Bailey. The big defensive tackle's consistent collapsing of the pocket made life very uncomfortable for Cera, but he's been terrorizing opposing offenses all season long; Bailey has 30 tackles and 4 sacks on the season. As a Defensive TACKLE. Not as an end, not as an OLB, as a DT. That's ridiculous. Special Teams Player of the Week: K Josh Booth, Akron - 3/3 FG (made 39, 24, 35), 4/4 XP A Sweep of the Weekly Awards by the Zips! That's what happens when you give us a fun and exciting game, I suppose. As all good things do it had to come to an end, and it somehow seems fitting that it ended on the left foot of Akron's senior kicker. Booth was perfect on the day, including the double-overtime game-winner, and he leads all MAC kickers in points scored this season (61) on the back of an impressive 15-of-16 FG conversion rate. Congratulations to all the Akron winners!

  14. Offensive Player of the Week: RB Gabe Ciamo, Toledo 23 rushes of 125 yards, 2 TDs (W at Ball State) How is this only his second-ever award? His backfield mate Benjamin Hanson and the Rockets passing attack has taken up a lot of the spotlight, but Gabe Ciamo has been consistently good ever since he stepped on the field for Toledo. Against a Ball State defense featuring daunting defensive tackles Isamaeli Afamasaga and Rashaad Malcolm, Ciamo still managed to average just over five yards per carry while doing the majority of the scoring. Even though he's only played five games so far, the redshirt sophomore is already on pace to rush for nearly 1400 yards during the regular season. Coach @deathcpo certainly wouldn't mind if Ciamo and Hanson play hot potato with this award throughout the year. Defensive Player of the Week: OLB Raymond Smith, Akron 2 Sacks, 7 Tackles (W vs. Utah) And on defense just as it was on offense, a teammate of last week's winner takes home the same award. This time it's outside linebacker Raymond Smith who was unleashed on an unsuspecting Mormon Lasercannon. Utah QB Donald Culver certainly got intimately acquainted with Smith, who sacked twice and knocked him down several more times - and then knocked down several other guys wearing Ute red and white. The sophomore from Greenville, Ohio nearly doubled his season tackle total in this game and considering he and Kameron McCall went back-to-back on defensive POTW, the Akron defense seems hell-bent to prove they're more than just "Marlon Bailey and the ten other guys." Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio 3/3 (29, 26, 35), 3/3 XP (W vs. Miami(OH)) Timmay! Mr. Wilhelm decided to one-up the other players on this week's list. Instead of a teammate representing the school, he just decided to do it himself. Timmy was cool under pressure (and indeed his been all year, still not missing a kick) and earned his spot this week as the Bobcats beat the previously-undefeated Redhawks by... a field goal. This also marks his NINTH MAC POTW award; with this he surpasses Emmanuel Fields as the all-time leader in this accolade. Congratulations to all the winners!

  16. Offensive Player of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo 22 of 30 for 287 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT (W at Bowling Green) This kind of performance is starting to become old hat for the Toledo signal-caller; Hanson has shown up here three out of the four games he's played so far this season. It was good he played up to his usual standards, because the Rockets needed all that and then some to shake off a dogged Bowling Green squad. With an incredible 74.7% completion rate and a tidy 10/2 TD/INT ratio on the season, Hanson leads the MAC in QBR with a 180.53 rating and is key to Toledo's current and future aspirations. Defensive Player of the Week: ILB Kameron McCall, Akron 1 INT, 8 Tackles (W at Indiana) In contrast to Hanson's frequent visits to this list, this is McCall's first POTW award. But it doesn't mean that he was any less important to his team's victory against Big Ten Twelve Eleven Fourteen eleventybillion B1G member Indiana. McCall was cleaning up everywhere on the field while also picking off a pass for the undefeated Zips. McCall is one of the more unheralded players on Akron's defense, so good on him for stepping up and proving himself a vital member of their stop squad! Special Teams Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio 3/3 FGs (made 46, 27, 35), 2/2 XP (W vs. Western Kentucky) In contrast to the other two selections for this week's Players of the er, Week, this race was a complete shutout. No one in the third phase of the game had a more impressive day than Ohio's own Timmy Wilhelm. The senior stayed perfect on the year, including kicking a season-long 46-yarder among his three field goals. Perhaps even more impressive is that he tied MAC legend Emmanuel Fields for the most POTW awards in MAC history with eight. What a career Wilhelm has had with the Bobcats. Congratulations to all the winners!
  17. Vote!* Which player best deserves your weekly accolades? (Yes this includes any and all non-MAC coaches) RB Austin Laws, BST, 24 for 117 yards, 1 TD (W vs. CMU) QB Benjamin Hanson, TOL, 22 of 30 for 287 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT (W at BGSU) WR Justin Evans, TOL, 8 for 100 yards, 1 TD (W at BGSU) RB DeSean Madison, WMU, 23 for 110 yards, 2 TD (W at BUF) WR Charles Stevens, WMU, 4 for 80 yards, 1 TD (W at BUF) CB Levern White, TOL, 1 INT, 2 Tackles, 1 TD (W at BGSU) OLB Brandon Thomas, BGSU, 1.5 Sacks, 8 Tackles (L vs TOL) ILB Kameron McCall, AKR, 1 INT, 8 Tackles (W at IND) DT Marlon Bailey, AKR, 7 Tackles (W at IND) FS Omari Easley, BUF, 8 Tackles (L vs. WMU) K Timmy Wilhelm, OH, 3/3 (46, 27, 35), 2/2 XP P Eric Caudill, TOL, 40.3
  18. Offensive MAC Player of the Week: QB Zack Cera, Miami(OH) 30 of 45 for 335 yards, 4 TD, 1 INT (W vs. E. Michigan) It's kind of a surprise that this is the FLAMETHROWER ZACK CERA'S first time as the MAC's Offensive Player of the Week, considering his ability and Miami's scheme. But Cera certainly lit up the scoreboard and the Eagles for his third 300-yard game in four tries. With 1232 passing yards and a sparkling 13/3 TD/INT ratio through four games, we don't see him slowing down any time soon. We do see him likely showing up here again this season. Defensive MAC Player of the Week: SS Quinn Benson, Kent State 1 INT, 2 Tackles, 1 TD (W vs Bowling Green) A tight race between Benson and Miami CB Shamar McClendon with similar stats but Benson takes it, likely due to the importance of the pick-six to his game's outcome. The safety's touchdown sparked his team to an upset win over the visiting Falcons. The senior so far has been the linchpin of the Golden Flash defense, and Benson is doing everything he can to get Kent State to a bowl game. Special Teams MAC Player of the Week: K Harry DeMarco, 3/3 FG (made 47, 27, 34), 5/5 XP (W vs SDSU) Not to be outdone by Benson, WMU's kicker also makes his second appearance as a Player of the Week this season. The redshirt freshman remains perfect on the year, booting a career-long 47-yarder as one of three field goals DeMarco added to his tally. He also got a lot of practice from shorter distances with five extra points, the Broncos will need him to keep his excellent form against a tough foe in the Buffalo Bulls next week. Congratulations to all the winners!
  19. Phew, you needed to really ball out to be nominated for POTW honors this week! When neither a 20 of 25 for 250 yards, 3 TD passing performance nor a 129 rushing yards, 2 TD. 5.61 YPC game can't make the list, it's a pretty damn high quality list. So vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades?
  20. Offensive MAC Player of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo 20 of 26 for 255 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT (W vs. Old Dominion) Hanson goes back-to-back with this award on the heels of a uber-efficient statline. A 76 percent completion rate and 9.81 passing yards per attempt are just the cherries on top of that already pretty 3/0 TD/INT QB sundae. Toledo will give someone else a chance to win this award next week with a bye before starting into the conference portion of their schedule, but we can likely expect to see Mr. Hanson's name in consideration for this award a few more times this year. Defensive MAC Player of the Week: CB Sean Taylor, W. Michigan 1 INT, 3 Tackles, 1 TD (W at Navy) Welcome back, Mr. Taylor! After being invisible the first two games of the season, the Broncos' star cornerback made his presence felt in a big way, picking off a pass from Navy QB Isaiah Best and taking it all the way back for a pick-six in WMU's 24-13 win. As noted by @Bubada shortly after the game, half of Taylor's 12 career interceptions have gone the other way for a touchdown. He is truly an electrifying player on the field. Special Teams MAC Player of the Week: K Josh Booth, Akron 4/4 FG (made 38, 28, 31, 42), 3/3 XP Akron's senior placekicker had himself a heck of a game on Thursday. Kicking ain't easy but Booth made it seem that way, drilling the ball perfectly on all four of his field goal tries. Add in his three extra points and he almost matched UTEP's point total all by himself! (UTEP 17, Booth 15) He and his leg get a well-earned rest this week. Congratulations to all the winners!
  21. Whoopsadoodle, forgot to post the Week 3 Player of the Week winners: MAC Offensive Players of the Week: QB Benjamin Hanson, Toledo, 19 of 25 for 250 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT (W vs. Memphis) RB Owen Walton, Ohio, 22 rushes for 102 yards, 2 TD (W at Buffalo) MAC Defensive Player of the Week: OLB Brandon Thomas, Bowling Green, 2 Sacks, 7 Tackles (W vs. E. Carolina) MAC Special Team Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio, 1/1 FG (made 43), 4/4 XP (W at Buffalo) No writeups this week, sorry. But onward and upward. Which player best deserves your weekly accolades?
  22. Vote! Which player best deserves your weekly accolades?
  23. Offensive MAC Player of the Week: QB T.J. Zamora, Akron. 18 of 24 for 230 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT, 6 rushes for 55 yards. The Zips are sitting pretty atop the MAC East division, and Zamora is a big reason why. Against the strong Bowling Green front seven, he put up perhaps one of his best statlines ever. The biggest question with Zamora was always his consistency, not his talent. If he can continue to put up numbers similar to these (check out that 75% completion rate!), Akron will contend for the MAC East title. Defensive MAC Players of the Week: DE Connor Borden, W. Michigan. 1.5 Sacks, 4 Tackles SS Quinn Benson, Kent State. 11 Tackles Connor Borden did yeoman's work while trying to hold wunderkind Duke QB Bryce Thompson in check. The Ohio native did a fantastic job collapsing the pocket while not allowing rushing lanes, greatly limiting Thompson's mobility (only 5 carries for 16 yards). He even got to the QB a few times while he was at it, giving him his first-ever PotW honors. Kent State's best defensive player looked like it Saurday afternoon, putting in serious work against the Boilermakers. Benson showed that he was more than capable of cleaning up all the way from the back, often meeting Purdue RB Brendan Milton at the second level while doing his best to clear his area of wide receivers and tight ends. Special Teams MAC Player of the Week: K Harry DeMarco, W. Michigan. 3/3 FG (made 29, 27, 40), 3/3 XP. The Broncos fell to the Blue Devils in double overtime, but you can't blame it on DeMarco - he did all he could to prevent that outcome. His perfect accuracy on the day pushed him ahead of the other nominees in this week's special teams race. Congratulations to all the winners!
  24. Neal Davis: Good morning and welcome back to 94.1 WIP radio. Today we have a very polarizing guest joining us on the show. Fresh off of his debut it the purple and silver we have the man, the myth, the legend despite only playing in 1 game so far: QB Rahim Murrell. Welcome to the show Rahim. Rahim Murrell: Glad to be here Neal. Neal: So Rahim, some people would call your offseason a little turbulent. First you were snubbed by Missouri coach @vtgorilla. Then you transfer to Kansas State and compete with the incumbent QB Julius Minnow. Coach HAFFnHAFF announces that you will be taking the first team reps in the spring game, and then the day of the game the Players Tribune publishes an article that you wrote declaring that you are the greatest. Then you go out and implode during the spring game, and rather than flying under the radar you double down with yet another Players Tribune article the next day. Give us some insight into what was going through your head during that time. Rahim: I think the articles spelled it out pretty well. I never second guess myself. I know that if I am given the chance I can sling the rock with anybody out there. The hate that fans spew towards me just fuels me. People say never to read your own press. Well I read every article written after the spring game and I hung them up in my locker and in my dorm room. I recorded the ESPN segment and watched it everyday before practice. I listened to every radio show, including this one, saying I wasn't good enough. And I knew I would prove them wrong. Neal: So Thursday night you finally get that opportunity. And you step up to the plate and deliver, leading your offense to 44 points. That is the most points scored by a Kansas State team since week 11 of the 2016 season. 20 for 29 passing for 309 yards and 3 TDs. You were named player of the game, deservedly so. How did it feel to get that monkey off your back? Rahim: Well first of all, the monkey isn't off my back. I didn't come here to beat FAU. No disrespect to them and their program, but this win does nothing for me. This season is about the next game, and the next game, and the next one after that. This season is about a bowl game and national recognition. This season is about proving to the world that I'm better the Tucker Dowden. So did it feel good to play well? Yeah. But there is always a chip on my shoulder. Neal: Reports came out after the game, that you had a verbal altercation with members of the offensive line during halftime. What happened in that room? Rahim: Verbal altercation? Is that what they are calling it? That was nothin' man. Just motivating the boys to tighten up that protection up front. Neal: My sources say that it was a little more thanthen that. Allegedly it was nothing short of a shouting match between you and senior offensive lineman Abraham Swift. Are you concerned that there will be a fall out between you and other, how do I say this, less vocal members of the team? Rahim: It is what it is man. It is what it is. At the end of the day I don't care if any person in that locker room likes me. But they will respect me and go to battle with me. And they won't respect me because I tell them to. That ain't what it is about. They will respect me because I bust my ass every day in practice and on game day I leave nothing on the field. I breathe this game. I live this game. I bleed this game. So they don't have to like me, but I can promise you one thing: they sure as hell will run into battle with me. Neal: What do you guys need to work on heading into week 3 as you look to Central Michigan? Rahim: I think that is fairly obvious. Our defense has to play better. We can't give up 41 points to FAU and do what we want to do. They gotta put more pressure on the QB and get him off his game. Then our O-line has to step up. I was running for my life and throwing off my back foot all game. I Couldn't get comfortable in the pocket. They gotta set that clean pocket for me and let me do my thing, and they gotta open up more holes for Elijah [Humphrey]. He did a great job with the small holes he was given, but we gotta help him out more, and that all starts up front. Neal: Well I wish you guys all the luck in the world next week, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you have in store for an encore. Congratulations again on being named player of the game and thanks for coming on the show! Rahim: Thanks for having me. I know y'all weren't expecting me to be getting interviewed as a player of the week. I'm planning to be back around here a lot this season and continue to prove you guys wrong about me.
  25. The Finalists Adam Stave, ARMY, 20 of 24 for 374 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT Keyshawn Polsfoot, ARMY, 21 for 130 yards, 2 TD Chris Bell, NAVY, 24 for 104 yards, 2 TD Demarius Strong, NAVY, 1 Sack, 5 Tackles Charles Woods, ND, 1 Sack, 6 Tackles Rocky Waters, ND, 12 of 21 for 150 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT The Eliminations - Round One Adam Stave, ARMY, 20 of 24 for 374 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT Keyshawn Polsfoot, ARMY, 21 for 130 yards, 2 TD Chris Bell, NAVY, 24 for 104 yards, 2 TD: Out-rushed by opposing RB in same game Demarius Strong, NAVY, 1 Sack, 5 Tackles: Out-performed by Charles Woods, who played better opponent Charles Woods, ND, 1 Sack, 6 Tackles Rocky Waters, ND, 12 of 21 for 150 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT The Eliminations - Round Two Adam Stave, ARMY, 20 of 24 for 374 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT: Didn't do much after great first quarter Keyshawn Polsfoot, ARMY, 21 for 130 yards, 2 TD Charles Woods, ND, 1 Sack, 6 Tackles: Pretty vanilla game Rocky Waters, ND, 12 of 21 for 150 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT The Winner While "The Stavior" may grouse about it, Army's Keyshawn Polsfoot is Player of the Week, after out-rushing the more talented Chris Bell and scoring the game-winning touchdown in the Army-Navy Game, giving Army the bragging rights for another season.
