Big East Players of the Week and Weekly Honor Roll: Nov. 7

BIG EAST CONFERENCE FOOTBALL WEEKLY AWARD WINNERS

BIG EAST OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Geno Smith • Jr. • QB • West Virginia • Miami, Fla.

Smith turned in his third 400-yard passing performance of the season in West Virginia’s 38-35 loss to Louisville, completing 31 of 44 passes for 410 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. The yardage total ranks fifth on West Virginia’s single-game chart, and it gives Smith 6,197 career passing yards, good for second in school history. Smith, who has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 12 consecutive games, leads the BIG EAST and is seventh nationally in passing yards, averaging 347.2 yards per game.

BIG EAST DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Khaseem Greene • Jr. • LB • Rutgers • Elizabeth, N.J.

Greene registered a career-high 17 tackles — the most by a BIG EAST player in a game this season — to key Rutgers’ 20-17 overtime win against USF. Greene, who leads the BIG EAST in tackles this season (92), had the most tackles by a Rutgers player since Antonio Lowery had 19 against Army last season. Greene leads a Rutgers unit that ranks second in the BIG EAST in both total defense (324.2 yards per game) and scoring defense (18.8 ppg).

BIG EAST SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Adrian Bushell• Jr. • CB • Louisville • DeSoto, Texas

Bushell made a play that potentially resulted in a 10-point swing in Louisville’s 38-35 win at No. 24/21 West Virginia when he blocked a short field goal attempt that would have tied the game. Instead, a teammate picked up the loose ball and returned it 82 yards for a touchdown, giving the Cardinals a 31-21 lead. Bushell also finished with seven tackles to help the Cardinals to their first win in Morgantown since 1990.
