Big East helmet stickers: Week 5
By Matt Fortuna
Time to hand out some helmet stickers from Week 5 in the Big East:
Munchie Legaux, QB, Cincinnati: The Bearcats quarterback had his coming-out party, throwing for 376 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 27-24 victory over Virginia Tech. One game after turning it over four times against FCS opponent Delaware State, Legaux was picked off only once. He completed 3 of 7 passes for 68 yards and rushed for 17 more on Cincinnati's final drive, connecting with Damon Julian for a 39-yard touchdown with 13 seconds left to win the game.
Jory Johnson/Yawin Smallwood, UConn: The linebacking duo combined for 25 tackles in the Huskies' 24-17 win over Buffalo, including 2.5 for loss. None were bigger than Smallwood's on the Bulls' final play of the game, as he stuffed quarterback Alex Zordich 2 yards short of the first-down marker to ice the victory.
Senorise Perry, RB, Louisville: Perry rushed 22 times for 119 yards, carrying the Cardinals during an ugly night on an ugly field. His 14-yard score with less than six minutes remaining gave Louisville the winning 21-17 margin; he ran for a score in the second quarter as well.
