College Football Week Four Awards

September 26, 2012

It was an exciting week of high-profile games, highlighted by the prime-time matchups of Notre Dame-Michigan and Florida State-Clemson.  Week five will bring a slew of conference battles, led by the Big 10’s slate of Ohio State-Michigan State and Wisconsin-Nebraska.

Game of the Week: Florida St. over Clemson, 49-37.  The Seminoles re-established their rightful place among college football’s elite programs with a come-from-behind win over Clemson.  The ‘Noles need to avoid the proverbial let-down game this Saturday vs. in-state rival South Florida.

Offensive Player of the Week: E.J. Manuel – QB – FSU.  Manuel stamped his name as an early Heisman contender with 380 yards and 2 TD’s through the air, and an additional 102 yards on the ground.

Defensive Player of the Week: Manti Te’o – LB – Notre Dame.  The senior defensive leader for the Irish had another strong game in the wake of the tragic losses of his grandmother and girlfriend.  Te’o continues to be a huge force as the Irish try claw their way back into the Top 10.
