Non-AQ helmet stickers: Week 5
By Andrea Adelson
Yes, Hawaii is still playing, but we are going to give out our non-AQ
helmet stickers anyway:
Temple running back Matt Brown: Brown started in place of Bernard Pierce, who missed the game with a sprained ankle, and had a career day. Brown ran for a career-high 226 yards on 28 carries and added a career-high four touchdowns to help Temple come from behind to beat Army 42-35. His four rushing TDs tied the Michie Stadium record first set by Tony Dorsett in 1975. The last time a Temple player had four rushing touchdowns in a game was Walter Washington against West Virginia in 2003.
Air Force coach Troy Calhoun. The Falcons broke a seven-game losing streak to Navy with a 14-6 win to put them ahead in the race for the Commander-in-Chief Trophy. It was Calhoun's first win over Navy, and broke the Midshipmen's 15-game service academy winning streak. Air Force held Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs for the first time in his 17 starts.
SMU linebacker Ja'Gared Davis. Davis had a blocked field goal returned 77-yard for a touchdown in a 42-31 win over former Southwest Conference rival SMU. It was his first career touchdown. Davis also had a sack and has six this season. He has had at least one sack in each game this season.
Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle. Enderle completed a career-high 30 passes on 49 attempts and threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-13 win over Western Michigan. Enderle hit 10 different receivers, and his TDs went for 30, 24 and 4 yards. The Idaho defense stepped up, too, with three sacks, four tackles for loss, six pass breakups, four quarterback hurries and two turnovers.
Louisiana defensive lineman Jermaine Rogers. Rogers blocked an extra point with 31 seconds remaining to help the Ragin' Cajuns hold on to defeat North Texas 28-27. Louisiana nearly blew a 28-14 fourth-quarter lead but have Rogers to thank. Quarterback Chris Masson had 310 yards passing and two TDs in the win.
Nevada running back Vai Taua. Taua ran for a season-high 188 yards and three touchdowns in a 44-26 win over UNLV. It was his fourth straight 100-yard game, and his highest rushing total since gaining 263 yards against Fresno State on Nov. 7, 2008. Taua also added a 22-yard touchdown reception late in the second quarter.
