    Idaho State QB Taylor Davis, Idaho State (29-41, 499 yards, 8 TDs 1 INT)

    Accounted for every single point of his team's thrilling 3OT win over Washington State (other than the field goal to win it). Davis came in and absolutely lit up the skies as he had 4 receivers who had more than 80 yards receiving on the day. Just an incredible day for the 6'3'' junior out of Arizona, but I'm sure his coach would like to see the defense not have to force Davis into one of these record shattering days again anytime soon.


    Miami University RB Roman Lawson: 17 carries, 61 yards, 1 TD. 2 catches, 74 yards, 1 TD.

    Not much to choose from in the first week of the season as teams look to get their passing games going, but Lawson ends up getting the award for this week. Accounted for 2 of the 3 touchdowns his team had in a close 24-21 loss to Pitt


    Hawaii WR Marcus Johnson: 12 catches, 277 yards, 1 TD

    While Hawaii may have gotten off to a losing start this season, losing 41-38 to Rice, it most certainly wasn't for the lack of trying of Marcus Johnson. caught 12 of the 21 completed passes on the night for Hawaii, accounted for 277 yards of the 398 receiving yards for the team, Johnson tried to single-handedly will his team to victory and one must wonder if the Rice secondary was even bothering to cover this man! Whats scary is that he is the supposed "third best" receiver on this team, with juniors Darius Bright and Corey Lau ahead of him in the pecking order, but this 6'0'' freshman (RS) out of St Louis Heights looks like he's going to soar to new heights (pun so intended) if this season opening performance is anything to go by. The WAC better watch out!


    Colorado State LOLB Mike Orakpo: 13 tackles

    Ladies and Gentleman, allow me to introduce you to the one-man wrecking crew out of Colorado State, Mike Orakpo. Not as highly recruited out of highschool as his cousin Brian, Mike is showing us that playing OLB most certainly runs in the Orakpo genes as he was a beast in week 1. Even though the Rams ended up losing in double overtime to a very tough Michigan team, 37-31, Orakpo was the story of the game as Michigan most certainly will not forget about this outside linebacker anytime soon. This sophomore (RS) out of Houston Texas certainly looks like one to watch out for in the MWC.
