Big East helmet stickers: Week 12
By Andrea Adelson
How about a few helmet stickers for a job well done:
Adrian Bushell, CB, Louisville. Bushell returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown in a 34-20 win over UConn, a victory that allowed the Cardinals to become bowl eligible. Bushell served a one-game suspension last week for violating team rules and rebounded with a huge play, becoming the fourth player in school history to return a kickoff 100 yards.
Jawan Jamison, RB, Rutgers. Jamison had career highs with 34 carries and 200 yards rushing, along with two touchdowns, in a 20-3 win over Cincinnati. He became the third freshman running back in school history to rush for 200 yards in a game, joining Terrell Willis (221 yards, 1993) and Ray Rice (217 yards, 2005). The Scarlet Knights rushed for a season-high 212 yards, the most against a Big East opponent since getting 239 yards rushing at Louisville in 2009.
Brandon Jones, CB, Rutgers. Jones had the first sack and forced fumble of his career against Cincinnati, and also had an interception in the end zone to key a strong defensive effort. Rutgers recovered the fumble and converted the turnover into a touchdown.
