Devin Moore's 274 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns at Ohio were good enough to earn the speedy back Mountain West Conference Player of the Week honors for the second time in his career. See which other MWC players were given the award after this weekend's games.

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.

Beau Bell, UNLV

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.



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.
