Box Score Heroes: Week 5

Rob Leifheit-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

On a wild MAC football day, Zac Dysert's 624 total yards of offense is not only a MAC record, but a rare feat in which he passed for 500 yards and ran for 100.

Final - 9.29.2012 1 2 3 4 Total
Buffalo Bulls 7 0 7 3 17
Connecticut Huskies 3 14 7 0 24

Brandon Murie: 18 carries, 55 yards, TD; 1 reception, 54 yards, TD
Alex Neutz: 6 catches, 90 yards
Khalil Mack: 4 tackles, 3.5 TFL, sack, FF

Quick line: This could've been a much worse outcome without Buffalo's top running back but Murie was effective enough and the defense kept them in it. About all you can ask for.

Ball State:
Keith Wenning: 32-for-43, 445 yards, 5 TD; 6 carries, 14 yards
Willie Snead: 14 catches, 216 yards, 2 TD
Jonathan Newsome: 3 tackles, 2 sacks
Connor Ryan: 3 catches, 26 yards, 2 TD
Scott Kovanda: 4 punts, 44.2 average, long 52

Kent State:
Dri Archer: 8 rushes, 72 yards; 3 catches, 104 yards, 2 TD; 4 kickoff returns, 43.5 average, TD
Spencer Keith: 16-for-31, 295 yards, 3 TD, INT
Trayion Durham: 21 carries, 91 yards, 2 TD
Roosevelt Nix: 5 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 sack, FF
Anthony Melchiori: 6 punts, 45.2 average, long 50

Quick line: Certainly the most exciting game of the day, maybe because it was on Actual Television. And Dri Archer is worth the ticket fare.

Dawan Scott: 11 rushes, 208 yards, 2 TD
Andy Cruse: 9 catches, 111 yards TD
Chris Wade: 13 tackles, 2.5 TFL

Dee Frieson: 7 catches, 98 yards, 2 TD

J.D. Griggs: 5 tackles, 2 TFL, sack, pass breakup
O-Line (Adam Bice, Mitch Straight, Travis Switzer, Vinnie Rizzo, Jarrod Pughsley): 0 sacks allowed, 7.0 yards per rush

Quick line: Now that's just a silly amount of points. And I'm still trying to confirm but Dysert might be the first person in FBS history to pass for over 500 yards and rush for 100 yards in a single game.

Ohio Bobcats 3 17 0 17 37

Beau Blankenship: 43 carries, 269 yards, 2 TD; 1 catch, 11 yards
Tyler Tettleton: 15-for-27, 229 yards, 2 TD
Grant Venham: 3 punts, 46.3 average, long 55
Neal Huynh: 4 tackles, 3.5 TFL, 1 sack
O-Line (John Prior, Vince Carlotta, Skyler Allen, Eric Herman, Ryan McGrath): 0 sacks allowed, 5.3 yards per rush

Mike Wegzyn: 27-for-51, 373 yards, 4 TD; 7 rushes, 36 yards
Deion Walker: 11 catches, 162 yards, TD
Alan Williams: 7 catches, 127 yards, 3 TD
Antoine Tharpe: 6 tackles, TFL, blocked field goal

Quick line: Lot of ways you can look at this one. Either UMass got really, really good or OHIO was caught in a trap game. But either way, UMass finally wore down in the fourth quarter thanks to the relentless Blankenship.

Ryan Radcliff: 20-for-39, 332 yards, 2 TD, INT
Cody Wilson: 8 catches, 111 yards
Titus Davis: 1 catch, 92 yards, TD
Zurlon Tipton: 15 rushes, 66 yards, TD; 3 catches, 41 yards, TD
Richie Hogan: 4 punts, 46.0 average, long 54
O-Line (Eric Fisher, Andy Phillips, Nick Beamish, Darren Keyton, Mike Repovz): 0 sacks allowed, 4.2 yards per rush

Jordan Lynch: 14-for-32, 215 yards, TD; 21 carries, 144 yards, TD
Leighton Settle: 23 carries, 152 yards, 3 TD
Mathew Sims: 2-for-2 FG, 4-for-4 XP, 1 rush, 7 yards, TD
Dechane Durante: 5 tackles, FF, fumble recovery

Quick line: Admittedly I was a bit overloaded so I didn't pay much attention to this one, but from the looks of it NIU is back on track, and CMU's offensive line remains their pillar of strength.

Anthon Samuel: 17 carries, 127 yards, 3 TD
Matt Schilz: 20-for-27, 281 yards, 2 TD
Chris Gallon: 4 catches, 43 yards, 2 TD
Boo Boo Gates: 4 tackles, FF, 80-yard punt return TD
Gabe Martin: 9 tackles, 2 TFL

Quick line: Neat.

David Fluellen: 21 rushes, 213 yards, 3 TD; 5 catches, 34 yards
Terrance Owens: 22-for-33, 243 yards
Jordan Haden: 1 tackle, 63-yard INT return touchdown
Dan Molls: 13 tackles, 9 solo, pass breakup

Dareyon Chance: 17 carries, 102 yards
Jaime Wilson: 10 catches, 103 yards, TD
J Schroeder: 4 punts, 51.0 average, long 63
Desmond Bozeman: 11 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 blocked field goal
Donald Celiscar: 12 tackles, 11 solo, FF, pass breakup, safety tackle

Quick line: Toledo is starting to look ferocious, but not in the "billions of points and wacky outcomes" sense. Rather they are playing smart football on both sides and making the opposition look stupid. Only 17 points for WMU? Either Van Tubbergen is not what we expected or the Rockets defense is having the bounce-back year I envisioned.

Player of the Week predictions:
MAC East Offensive: Zac Dysert
MAC East Defensive: Khalil Mack
MAC East Special Teams: Dri Archer
MAC West Offensive: David Fluellen
MAC West Defensive: Donald Celiscar
MAC West Special Teams: Mathew Sims
