BIG EAST OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

 

Jawan Jamison • Fr. • RB • Rutgers • Starke, Fla.

Jamison rushed for 200 yards and scored two touchdowns on 34 carries to lead Rutgers to a 20-3 win against Cincinnati and vault the Scarlet Knights into a tie for first place in the BIG EAST standings. Rutgers entered the game a half-game behind the Bearcats in the standings, but stands just one win shy of earning a share of its first BIG EAST title. Jamison became the third freshman running back in school history to rush for 200 yards in a game and is the first since Ray Rice in the 2005 season.

 

BIG EAST DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

 

Dexter Heyman • Sr. • LB • Louisville • Louisville, Ky.

Heyman had seven tackles, including a sack and 3.5 tackles for loss, along with an interception to lead Louisville to a 34-20 win at Connecticut, lifting the Cardinals into a tie for first place in the BIG EAST standings. Heyman led a defense that limited the Huskies to just 76 rushing yards, helping the Cardinals to their fourth win in their last five games and making Louisville bowl-eligible for the second consecutive season.
