Big East helmet stickers
By Andrea Adelson
How about a few helmet stickers for a job well done.
Shawne Alston, RB, West Virginia. Alston entered the game with a season-high of 49 rushing yards, but that changed in a 41-31 win over Rutgers. Alston notched his first ever 100-yard game, rushing for 110 yards on 14 carries and also had a career-long 52 yard touchdown run as the Mountaineers relied on him and their run game to win in the snow.
Preston Brown, LB, Louisville. Brown led the Cardinals with 1.5 sacks, and also had seven tackles in an impressive 27-10 win over Syracuse. Louisville had four total sacks on Ryan Nassib. Brown went into the game with no career sacks. He also has made six or more tackles in five straight games.
Tino Sunseri, QB, Pitt. Sunseri threw for two touchdowns and a career-high 419 yards in a 35-20 win over UConn on Wednesday night. The performance was much needed after two consecutive subpar efforts had many tossing criticism his way. But coach Todd Graham said before the game he was sticking with Sunseri as his starter, and that move paid off against the Huskies.
