Big East helmet stickers: Week 5
By Andrea Adelson
How about some helmet stickers for a job well done?
Ray Graham, RB, Pitt. Graham was the best player on the field in a 44-17 upset win over No. 16 USF. He had 226 yards rushing and two touchdowns, his second 200-yard game of the season, and ended up with 303 all-purpose yards in his dominating performance.
Dustin Garrison, RB, West Virginia. Garrison ran for a career-high 291 yards and two touchdowns in a 55-10 rout of Bowling Green. Garrison had 233 yards in the first half alone, and became the fifth freshman in West Virginia history to go over 200 yards.
Cincinnati defense. The Bearcats had yet another dominating performance in their 27-0 win over Miami (Ohio). It was the Bearcats' first shutout since a 31-0 win over Eastern Kentucky on Sept. 2, 2006. It was also the first shutout in the Miami series since Sept. 25, 1976 (a 17-0 win) and the team's first shutout of Miami in Oxford since 1898. The unit also had an interception, 11.5 tackles for a loss and 4.5 sacks.
San San Te, K, Rutgers. Te redeemed himself in a huge way, making the game-winning 47-yard field goal in the second overtime for a 19-16 win over Syracuse. Te made a career-high four field goals, but missed three for the first time in his career -- including the potential game winner at the end of regulation.
