USF WR Andre Davis (Off.), Cincinnati DE Walter Stewart (Def.), Rutgers CB Brandon Jones (Spec. Teams) are BIG EAST Players of the Week— Big East Football (@BigEastFB) September 10, 2012
South Florida's Andre Davis had a huge game in the Bulls' comeback win at Nevada on Saturday. David caught 12 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns. One of which was a 52 yard touchdown pass with under a minute to go to give the Bulls the lead for good.
Walter Stewart made his case as the next great Cincinnati defensive star on Thursday night against Pittsburgh. Looking to replace names like Derek Wolfe and John Hughes, Stewart had three tackles for loss and two sacks of Pittsburgh's Tino Sunseri.
Brandon Jones, the unheralded cornerback on the Rutgers defense, scored a touchdown on a Scarlet Knights blocked punt. His second touchdown in as many weeks as the Rutgers defense led the team to a 26-0 win over Howard in the team's home opener.
Stay tuned to Big East Coast Bias as we'll have the conference honor roll when it is released and add it after the jump.
