Big East helmet stickers: Week 13
By Matt Fortuna
Here's who stood out the most in the Big East in Week 13.
Syracuse ground game: The Orange put up 260 yards on the ground in a 38-20 victory at Temple, and they got contributions everywhere. Jerome Smith had his usual strong performance, putting up 96 yards on 20 carries. But Prince-Tyson Gulley and Adonis Ameen-Moore delivered as well. Gulley rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, while Ameen-Moore had 57 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries.
Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati: Kelce set the school single-season record for receiving yards by a tight end, catching seven passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Bearcats' 27-10 win over South Florida.
Ray Graham, RB, Pitt: Graham delivered on senior day, rushing for 113 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries as the Panthers handed Rutgers its first Big East loss of the season, 27-6.
Lyle McCombs, RB, Connecticut: McCombs has had back-to-back 100-yard games. UConn has back to back Big East wins. No coincidence. McCombs helped the Huskies shock Louisville in triple overtime, rushing for 133 yards on 29 carries.
