    Week 7:
    Offense- Toledo QB Terrence Owens

    Terrance Owens has found his way back to being nominated for this weeks MAC Offensive Player of the Week. The guy was all over the field in the come from behind victory against conference rival Bowling Green State University. Unfortunately, Terrance exited the game and backup QB Austin Dantin won it with a 19 yard TD pass with 9 seconds left on the clock. He completed 6 of 12 passes for 167 yards and hooked up with WR Eric Page and WR Kenny Stafford for his 2 TDs. He made only on mistake via interception right before halftime which setup a FG for Bowling Green. Owens biggest play of the day was when he busted a 50 yard rushing TD as the 3rd Quarter came to a close. He would finish the day with 261 total yards and 3 total TDs and kept the undefeated season alive...
    Defense- Central Michigan FS Avery Cunningham

    Central Michigan defeated Eastern Michigan 24-9 at Rynearson Stadium, and it was mostly due in part to the play of Sophomore FS Avery Cunningham. The young buck was not scared to come up and make big plays at the line of scrimmage. Twice he would take down the opposing RB in the backfield and he was also able to get to the QB for his only sack of the day. Even though he did not pick off the ball his hard hitting ability caused two fumbles and great field position for the Chippewas.
    Week 8:
    Offense- Western Michigan QB Alex Carder

    This is the third time we have seen Alex Carder on the list for MAC Offensive Player of the Week, and he continues to have phenomenal season. Carder is definitely showing why he should be MAC Offensive Player of the Year and with another great showing against Eastern Michigan you may see him get some national spotlight in the near future. The lowly Eastern Michigan defense just could not stop Carder as he carved them for 461 yards on 37 attempts. He was also able to complete 3 passing TDs, two to WR Eric Monette and one to WR Robert Arnheim. While the passing was on fire he was also able to use his legs and get into the endzone three times, all from very short distances. Not much else to say except he went into beastmode and single handily crushed Eagles, 45-10.
    Defense- Temple RE Adrian Robinson
    [​IMG]
    The 6'2" and 250lb monster RE had his way with Bowling Green's LT Kyle Bryant as the Owls cruised there way to a 27-7 victory. Robinson exploited Bryant's youth and taught young and upcoming defensive ends how to release from blocks, get to the QB, and force the ball loose. I can only imagine how sore QB Matt Schiltz was the next day after getting obliterated three times by Robinson and three times from his other teammates. He was also able to record 4 tackles and 2 forced fumbles helped the Temple offense out.
    Week 9:
    Offense- Central Michigan QB Ryan Radcliff
    [​IMG]
    For once someone beat out Terrance Owens and Alex Carder for the coveted player of the week title. Radcliff could not be stopped at InfoCision Stadium going 24 of 31 for 488 yards, with 0 INTS and 4 TDs. The Zips did not have an answer and could not keep up with JR(RS) QB and his WR corp. He would complete passing TDs from 31, 16, 4 and 55 yards out, all of which kept their lead intact. The defense definitely did not help him out so he took it as a challenge to take the team on his back and lead them to a 52-48 victory.
    Defense- Miami(OH) CB DJ Brown
    [​IMG]
    Not only did DJ Brown receive the honor of MAC Defensive Player of the Week but he inched closer to breaking the most interceptions record in one season. Him and three other Redhawk defenders literally picked apart the Buffalo defense in Oxford, OH. Brown not only had 2 of the 7 interceptions but every time he was able to return them to great field position. One of his picks right before halftime lead to Miami's first score of the game. The next one would essentially nail the coffin shut. Interceptions come and go but his shifty movements was able to let him return 53 yard punt return for a TD to give the Redhawks a 14-6 lead. The Junior(RS) is definitely setting a great example to his fellow corners.
