Mid Major College Football Week 5: Rocks, Paper, Scissors


Rocks:

Greg Alexander, QB, Hawaii- Alexander was not able to find the end zone at all against Louisiana Tech which led to the 27-6 defeat against Hawaii. Greg also threw for under 200 yards and threw two interceptions. The offensive line did not help as Alexander was sacked 5 times before being knocked out of the game. It was also the first time in 62 games that Hawaii did not score a touchdown. 

Paper:

Robb Akey, Idaho- Akey led the Vandals to a big win against Colorado State this weekend as Idaho improves to 4-1 on the season. They are 1-0 in the WAC and will be going into San Jose State next week with loads of confidence. Although it was a close game, Idaho was very balanced as they finished with over 400 total yards on offense and forced CSU to turn the ball over twice. 

Scissors:

Case Keenum, QB, Houston- Although Houston lost, Keenum again had a fantastic game. He threw the ball an astonishing 76 times and completed 51 of his attempts for 536 yards. He also threw 5 touchdowns and zero interceptions. 

Donald Buckram, RB, UTEP- Staying in the same game, Buckram helped UTEP shock Keenum and Houston in a wild shoot-out. Donald averaged over 8 yards per carry and finished with a total of 262 yards on the ground. He also found the end zone four times.
