Big East helmet stickers: Week 12
By Matt Fortuna
Here's who stood out the most during Week 12 of the Big East
Montel Harris, RB, Temple: Uh, wow. Harris set school and conference records in rushing for 351 yards and seven touchdowns. Not much else to say but "wow," once more. (And to think he didn't even practice this week because of a knee injury.)
Savon Huggins, RB, Rutgers: With Jawan Jamison limited by an ankle injury, Huggins slid into the No. 1 role and filled the shoes more than capably, carrying the ball 41 times for 179 yards. Seriously, what other No. 2 running back could handle that kind of workload? It matches Jamison's 41-carry effort from earlier this season, at USF.
Alec Lemon, WR, Syracuse: Lemon caught 12 passes for a career-high 244 yards, including the game-winner with 20 seconds left. He had four catches for 81 yards on the Orange's final drive. Lemon's 244 yards topped all receivers in Week 12, and it marked the third-highest single-game total in Big East history.
Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse: Nassib led the Orange to another last-second road win. He completed 26 of 40 passes for 385 yards with two touchdowns and one pick, and he has lifted Syracuse to four wins in its last five games, bowl-eligible once again.
