Offense: Pete Thomas (CSU). 29-of-37 pass attempts (78.3 percent) for 386 yards and three touchdowns in win over Idaho.
Defense: Jon Davis (AF). Six tackles (five solo stops), one tackle for loss (-6 yards), an interception and a fumble recovery in win over Wyoming.
Special Teams: Jeremy Kerley (TCU). Returned five kickoffs for 172 yards, including a career-long 83-yard return in win over SMU.
Personally I don't have a problem with Thomas or Kerley (although I think CSU's kicker probably deserves it, the 83-yard return is a good one). But Davis is being over-rewarded for covering the fumble that sealed the game. There were better performances in several games, like Lamar Chapman - Utah (6 tackles, 4 solo, 1.5 for loss, 1 sack) or Sidney Hodge - UNLV (4 tackles, all solo, 1 for loss, forced fumble) or Leon McFadden - SDSU (7 tackles, 5 solo, 3 for loss and a pass breakup)
