Offensive Player of Week 3
Southern Illinois players may not believe Terry had an upset stomach before the "War for the Wheel." Not after he set Ohio Valley Conference records for rushing yards (311) and all-purpose yards (438) and scored four touchdowns in Southeast Missouri's 48-44 win. Terry carried the ball 30 times and scored on runs of 74, 23, 11 and 10 yards. He also caught one pass for 13 yards and returned five kicks for 114 yards.
Defensive Player of Week 3
  • Team: McNeese
  • Height: 73
  • Weight: 220
  • Position: LB
As McNeese beat Southland Conference rival Nicholls 20-10 in the STATS FCS Game of the Week, Blunt was a one-man wrecking crew, including nine tackles (six solos), four tackles for loss and three sacks. On the game's opening kickoff, he recovered a fumble on the Nicholls 16, and it led to a Cowboys touchdown on the next play. He also had one quarterback hurry.
Special Teams Player of Week 3
An Australian import and graduate transfer from Prairie View A&M, Hoolihan nearly flawless in Sacramento State's 28-25 win at Northern Colorado. He pinned the Bears inside their 20-yard line on six of his eight punts. His final punt in the closing seconds of the game was a 50-yarder that backed up the returner and led to a muff, which was recovered by Sac State. UNC's average field position after Hoolihan's punts was its 14.
Freshman Player of Week 3

  • Height: 68
  • Weight: 153
