NOV 12 PAC-12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Michael Pittman Jr., So., WR, USC (Woodland Hills, Calif.)...Was part of successful trick play scoring punt return against UCLA, as the entire USC punt return team (including the returner) ran toward the UCLA sideline as if the Bruin punt was kicked in that direction when actually it went towards the USC sideline, where Pittman had sprinted back from his gunner blocking spot on the snap...He fielded the ball in the air and ran 72 yards untouched down the USC sideline for the touchdown in a 28-23 Trojan victory.

11/20/17- Zach Von Rosenberg, Fr, LSU, 6-4, 250
NOV 20 SEC SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Zach Von Rosenberg, P, LSU...The left-footer had best game of his career, punting five times for a career-best 49.2 average. Two of his booming punts resulted in fumbles by Tennessee - one resulting in an LSU field goal and a 3-0 lead in the first quarter and the other led to a TD and a 10-3 advantage in the second quarter. His fourth punt of the game carried 60 yards (career long) and pinned the Vols on their own 5-yard line. That punt flipped the field and after a three-and-out by the Vols, LSU scored four plays later for a 17-3 lead. For game, three of his five punts were downed inside the 20-yard line and two resulted in fumbles. - SEC Football

Now has 9 TDs on the season, which is tied for the most in the nation among all tight ends (Sr. Jake Roh, Boise State). Ended the night with career highs in receptions (5) and yardage (116), breaking the 100-yard mark for the first time in his career. First TD was a diving 7-yard grab in the end zone to cap the opening drive of the game from QB Drew Lock to put the Tigers up quickly, 7-0. His second was a catch-and-run on the left seam that went for 57 yards as he outraced the Vandy secondary for the score. Of his 5 receptions Saturday, 4 came on third downs and all went for first downs, with 3 of those coming on 3rd-and-long situations, including a 3rd-and-8 (57 yard TD), a 3rd-and-11 (20-yard catch) and a 3rd-and-7 (7-yard TD).

11/20/17- Montez Sweat, Jr, Mississippi State, 6-5, 241
NOV 20 SEC DEFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Montez Sweat, DL, Mississippi State...Sweat had another dominating game, collecting a career-high 2.5 sacks in a 28-21 win at Arkansas. He finished with four overall tackles...Sweat's 2.5 sacks were the most by an SEC player this week and the most by a Bulldog since Chris White had 2.5 vs. Florida on Oct. 16, 2010...It upped his season total to 9.0, which is tied for ninth in MSU single-season history and tied for the most by a Bulldog in the last 12 years (Preston Smith of the Washington Redskins had 9.0 in 2014)...State limited Arkansas to 221 yards of total offense, the fewest allowed by MSU vs. an SEC foe this season. Arkansas managed only 86 rushing yards against Sweat's unit. - SEC Football

11/20/17- Baker Mayfield, rSr, Oklahoma, 6-0, 220
Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, won't be a starter or a captain in his final home game. That is the fallout from Mayfield's sideline behavior in Saturday's victory at Kansas, when the senior yelled obscenities and made vulgar gestures toward the Jayhawks. Mayfield apologized after the game. Coach Lincoln Riley announced the discipline at his weekly Monday press conference. He added that Mayfield will play at some point when the No. 4 Sooners (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) host West Virginia (7-4, 5-3). "I think it's important for everybody here and across the country to keep in perspective ... that not just Baker, but all these players across the country are still young men. They're still learning. They're still in that phase that they are going to make mistakes," Riley said. "The important thing is you learn from them and grow from them. I think what we're setting forth here is going to provide Baker an opportunity do that. I think it's something that certainly will get his attention."

Mayfield's apology was his third this year. He also did so after an offseason arrest in Arkansas and for planting the OU flag at midfield after the Sooners' win at Ohio State early in the season. Mayfield has completed 233 of 329 passes for 3,816 yards, with 34 touchdowns and five interceptions. He ranks third in the country in passing yards per game (346.9). His national-best 199.3 passing efficiency rating is ahead of his FBS record mark of 196.4, set last season. Sophomore Kyler Murray, a transfer from Texas A&M who has completed 16 of 19 passes this season, is expected to start for Oklahoma. - The Sports Xchange

11/20/17- Rashaad Penny, Sr, San Diego State, 5-10, 220

This was the first time in his career Penny was back for a punt return...Penny is one of 12 FBS players this year to return a kick 100 yards for a score...In total, finished with 201 return yards. - Mountain West Football

11/20/17- Terry Swanson, Sr, Toledo, 5-09, 200
NOV 20 MAC WEST DIVISION OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Toledo RB Terry Swanson...Toledo senior running back Terry Swanson (Aliquippa, Pa.) rushed a career-high 192 yards on 23 attempts in a 66-37 win at Bowling Green on Nov. 15. Swanson averaged 8.3 yards per carry and had nine rushes of at least 10 yards, with a long run of 25 yards. It was the 14th 100-yard rushing game of his career.

11/20/17- Sutton Smith, rSo, Northern Illinois, 6-0, 225
NOV 20 MAC WEST DIVISION DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Northern Illinois DE Sutton Smith...Northern Illinois sophomore defensive end Sutton Smith (St. Charles, Mo.) continued his spectacular sophomore season with another record-setting performance in a 35-31 win over Western Michigan on Nov. 15. A week after breaking NIU's single season record for tackles for loss, Smith set the Huskie record for quarterback sacks in a season after leading the NIU defense with 2.5 sacks against the Broncos to give him 13 for the season. The sacks were far from the whole story, though, as Smith totaled 5.5 tackles for loss, giving him a nation-leading 27.5 on the season, and for the second time this year, scored on a fumble recovery. With the score tied at 14 and Western Michigan on the Huskie 38-yard line after a seven-yard NIU punt, Smith picked up a fumble by Broncos' quarterback Reece Goddard and ran 58 yards to give NIU a 21-14 lead in the second quarter.
