The Mississippi State Bulldogs pulled off a close 27-23 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes behind a gutsy performance from QB Ryder Shipman who stayed in the game and threw for 323 yards and 3 TDs despite having fractured his thumb late in the third quarter.


The Philadelphia Eagles topped the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football 31-28. The three headed monster in Philly's backfield: Allan Taylor, Troy White, and rookie Marshawn Miller put the whole league on notice with their performance.


The hype around North Dakota State QB Will Chacko continues to grow following a 389 yard 3 td performance which nearly resulted in an upset win for the Bison over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets


The Kansas City Chiefs beat the New York Football Giants 27-0 despite only throwing the ball 6 times largely because of the legs of Terrence Rodgers and Justin Buchanan.


Hockey is back! And the Chicago Blackhawk's rookie sensation Anatoli Kolchenyuk picked up right where he left off notching yet another goal early in his rookie campaign.

    [2020] Week 7 MAC Players of the Week

    Recommended Posts



    Offensive :mac: Player of the Week: RB Gabe Ciamo, Toledo  :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 :mac: Player of the Week: OLB Raymond Smith, Akron :zips: 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 :mac: Player of the Week: K Timmy Wilhelm, Ohio :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!
