Mountain West Connection Players of the Week

Which performances from week three stood out?

NCAA Football: Fresno State at UNLV Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Week three left us scratching our heads with some poor performances (Wyoming, San Diego State, Boise State). But there are only three undefeated teams left and a few one loss teams appear to be finding their footing. There were some great performances in week three, here are our winners for players of the week.

Offensive Player of the Week:

Ronnie Rivers

I would have no problem if the award went to Carson Strong or Chevan Cordeiro. But Rivers was dominant, he had 133 yards on 19 carries and 99 yards receiving on six catches. Rivers also accounted for four of the five Bulldog touchdowns. Rivers was responsible for nearly half of Fresno State’s offensive production.

Defensive Player of the Week:

Marshaun Cameron

As far as defensive performances go, Cameron had about as good of a night as you could expect from the senior defensive back. Cameron had an interception that he returned for a touchdown, forced a fumble, had a sack, and finished with 10 tackles. What a performance by Cameron en route to the Rams first win of the season. Cameron will need a similar performance on Thursday when the Rams travel to Boise to take on the Broncos.

Special Teams Player of the Week:

Ryan Stonehouse

There weren’t a lot of standout special teams performances this week, but Ryan Stonehouse continues to be Mr. Reliable for the Rams. Stonehouse consistently stuck Wyoming with poor field position, averaging 46 yards per punt on five punts.
