COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Colorado State quarterback Bradlee Van Pelt, New Mexico cornerback Gabriel Fulbright and Wyoming place-kicker Deric Yaussi were named Mountain West Conference Players of the Week on Monday.

Van Pelt, who won his second offensive player award this season and the third of his career (2002), posted 383 total yards in Colorado State's 30-20 victory over Air Force last Thursday.

The senior passed for 258 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 125 yards and two scores in the win.

Fulbright, who took the defensive honor, tied a MWC record with three interceptions in New Mexico's 30-7 win at San Diego State on Saturday.

The sophomore defensive back intercepted each pass in his own end zone, nullifying three potential San Diego State scoring drives.

Yaussi, a freshman, converted his longest collegiate field goals -- from 42 and 43 yards -- on Saturday in Wyoming's 13-10 victory over BYU. The kicker accounted for the Cowboys only offensive points in the game.
