Hustle Belt MAC Player of the Week: Chris Jones

Chris Jones (91) celebrates one of his three sacks in Bowling Green's 13-10 victory over Temple (The Blade/Andy Morrison)


Another week in the books, and we have not just an upset, but a standout defensive performance within that upset that I am choosing as the stud for the week.

Bowling Green defensive lineman Chris Jones gets the nod for recording six tackles and three sacks for a total of minus-16 yards in helping the Falcons finish the season-long demonstration of how incredibly reliant Temple is on their running backs and not their quarterback.

Jones and his teammates may have allowed 226 yards rushing to Bernard Pierce and Matt Brown, but they only allowed them across the goal line once, and in the end that's all that matters.

Runner up this week is a tie between two Eastern Michigan teammates: last week's winner Javonti Greene and his 50 yard touchdown run and 50 yard touchdown catch, plus safety Bryan Pali, who tied for the team lead with 10 tackles, including a split of the fourth-down stop that kept Western out of the end zone and kept EMU's 14-10 final margin intact.

Honorable mention: Chazz Anderson, Keith Wenning, Ryan Radcliff, Zurlon Tipton, David Blackburn, Jack Tomlinson, Brown, Pierce, Anthon Samuel, Tyler Tettleton, Lavon Brazill, Donte Harden, Dawon Scott, Toledo's Yardage-By-Committee
