Big East helmet stickers: Week 4
By Andrea Adelson
How about some helmet stickers for a job well done.
Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers. Sanu has been on a tear this season. After catching a career-high 13 passes against North Carolina, he did better against Ohio. Sanu caught a school and Big East record 16 passes against the Bobcats, getting 176 yards and two touchdowns in the 38-26 victory. Sanu already has 36 receptions this season.
JK Schaffer, LB, Cincinnati. Schaffer keyed yet another terrific effort from the Bearcats' defense in a dominating 44-14 win over NC State on Thursday night. Schaffer led the team with nine tackles, and also had an interception as Cincinnati forced three turnovers to add to their NCAA lead. He has three interceptions this season.
Nick Williams, WR, Connecticut. Williams has been a return specialist but finally got his chance on offense and came through in a big way. Williams had a career-high 113 yards on just two catches in a 17-3 win over Buffalo. One catch went for 64 yards and set up the first touchdown of the game. The second was a 49-yard touchdown reception.
B.J. Daniels, QB, USF. Maybe I should spread the helmet sticker love around at USF, but it is hard to do when Daniels is playing so well. Daniels finished with 332 total yards --130 rushing and 202 passing -- in a 52-24 win over UTEP. He had a career-long 71-yard touchdown run and two touchdown passes and now has 10 total touchdowns this season.
