Big East helmet stickers: Week 7
By Andrea Adelson
How about a few helmet stickers for a job well done?
Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers. Greene had his best game of the season in a 23-15 win over Syracuse, racking up 14 tackles, three forced fumbles, one interception and 1.5 sacks. Rutgers needed to rely on big plays from its defense, and the Scarlet Knights got them from their defensive leader. Special consideration to Duron Harmon, whose 75-yard touchdown off a blocked field goal in the third quarter swung momentum for Rutgers.
Montel Harris, RB, Temple. Harris had his best day for the Owls, running for 142 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries in a 17-14 overtime win over UConn. His performance was a huge reason why Temple was able to stay in the game, especially since he had the majority of the carries with Matt Brown out. Harris now has consecutive 100-yard rushing games for the Owls. Special consideration also given to Brandon McManus, who won the game with his 29-yard field goal in overtime.
Senorise Perry, RB, Louisville. Perry ran for 101 yards and a career-high four touchdowns in a 45-35 victory over Pitt. His 59-yard run late in the fourth quarter sealed the victory to keep the Cardinals unbeaten. Perry became the first running back to rush for four touchdowns in a game since Michael Bush did in a triple overtime game against West Virginia on Oct. 15, 2005. He has six rushing scores in his past two games, and leads the team with nine touchdown runs. Special consideration to DeVante Parker, who had 153 yards receiving for the first 100-yard game of his career.
