Matt Johnson and Jordan Lynch Headline The MAC Week 4 Players of The Week

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The MAC announced its Players of The Week for Week 4 and several players took home the honors for a second time this season.

With Week 4 in the books, the Mid-American Conference announced its Players of The Week. This week includes several players who have already seen their names on the list once before. In the East, Bowling Green quarterback Matt Johnson was named the Offensive POTW for the second time this year (in only three career starts) after a near-perfect performance in the Falcons' 48-7 win. Johnson is currently second in the conference in passing yardage with an even 1,000 yards.

Rounding out the list of East honorees is a pair of RedHawks, which is interesting considering the miserable performance Miami had against Cincinnati. Defensive Dayonne Nunley takes home the East Defensive POTW after posting 10 tackles, 3 pass breakups and an interception, the 13th of his career. Special Team's POTW goes to Miami's MVP, punter Zac Murphy who has almost four times as many yards as the RedHawks entire offense. Murphy previously won the award in Week 2.

Out West Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch gets the Offensive POTW for the second time this year. Lynch had 424 total yards against Eastern Illinois Saturday night and currently leads the MAC in rushing yards per game, and is fourth in passing yards per game. Rounding out the West is a pair of Rockets in linebacker Junior Sylvestre and kick returner Bernard Reedy. Sylvestre had 12 tackles, and forced and recovered a fumble, returning it for a touchdown in Toledo's 34-17 win over Central Michigan. Reedy's 50-yard kick return in the fourth quarter against CMU set up a key fourth quarter touchdown that helped seal the Rockets' win.
