Offensive Player of the Week

Charles Williams (UNLV)

Williams was an absolute force for a Rebel team that finally seems to be figuring things out. Williams carried the load for UNLV, rushing the ball 38 times for 266 yards and three touchdowns. The Rebels have now won two in a row after starting the year 0-8.

Defensive Player of the Week

Ajani Carter (Utah State)

Carter was a force for the Aggies. He forced a fumble, recovered two fumbles, and had an interception he returned 45 yards. Carter also had four tackles for an overall spectacular performance.

Special Teams Player of the Week

Matt Araiza (San Diego State)

Araiza has proven himself to be the most valuable player of a San Diego State squad that now sits alone atop the West Division. Araiza made three out of four kicks, including a long of 48. He also averaged over 55 yards on five punt attempts.
