OFFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
FRANK SUMMERS, UNLV
Junior, Running Back, Oakland, Calif./Laney College
Frank Summers rushed 29 times for 190 yards and two touchdowns (4 and 36 yards) in UNLV's 27-0 victory over Utah. Summers also caught one pass for 29 yards and touchdown for an all-purpose day of 219 yards. The rushing total was the 18th-best in school history and the most for a Rebel since 2002. He also became the first UNLV player to score at least three touchdowns in a game since 2003.
DEVIN MOORE, WYOMING
Junior, Running Back, Indianapolis, Ind./Cardinal Ritter
Devin Moore rushed for a career-high 198 yards on 19 carries and scored two touchdowns in Wyoming's 34-33 come-from-behind road victory at Ohio. Moore's 198 rushing yards were the most by a Wyoming running back since Sept. 3, 1994. Moore averaged 10.4 yards per carry, including a long of 42 yards and touchdown runs of one and 17 yards. He also returned three kickoffs for 71 yards and caught four passes for five yards for a total of 274 all-purpose yards.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
BEAU BELL, UNLV
Senior, Linebacker, Tustin, Calif./Tustin
Beau Bell led UNLV with 10 total tackles, including seven solo, forced a fumble and broke up a pass attempt as the Rebels broke an 11-game losing skid to Utah with a 27-0 victory in Las Vegas. The shutout was UNLV's first since 2000 and first-ever in MWC play. In the first quarter, Bell forced Utah's Corbin Louks to fumble on first down at the UNLV 23-yard line to thwart an early drive and keep the game scoreless. In the third quarter, his pass breakup of a Brian Johnson attempt on first down helped UNLV eventually force a turnover on downs to preserve the shutout.
SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
JOHN SULLIVAN, NEW MEXICO
Senior, Place Kicker, Tehachapi, Calif./Tehachapi
John Sullivan connected on all three field goal attempts from 36, 30 and 37 yards and made all seven extra point attempts for a total of 16 points in New Mexico's 58-0 victory Sacramento State. After starting the season missing two of his first three field goals, Sullivan has reeled off nine in a row. He's also perfect in PATs at 15-of-15.
