In a 23-20 loss against Indiana, Isaiah Williams had a big game. He caught 16 passes for 138 yards and 1 touchdown.
In the same game, offensive lineman Alex Palczewski was also recognized for his performance in a loss. It was better news for Nebraska running back Anthony Grant.
Grant rushed for 189 yards and 2 touchdowns versus North Dakota in the Cornhuskers in their 38-17 victory. Grant has made a huge impact on the Cornhuskers’ offense so far this season totaling 290 yards and four touchdowns in his first two games.
Jakorian Bennett in the Terpins’ 31-10 victory over Buffalo, had five tackles in his first game of the season, meanwhile, Joey Porter had 8 solo tackles of his own in the Nittany Lions’ 35-31 victory over Purdue.
All five players clearly made huge impacts on their teams this past week and deserved to be recognized for their efforts.
