MAC Football Week 7 Box Score Heroes

Once again, a fresh crop of great numbers appear in this week's Box Score Heroes. Most of it happened in the third quarter of the Toledo-EMU game.

Mark Zerof-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire



Zurlon Tipton: 11 carries, 55 yards; 4 catches, 36 yards
Curtis Huge: 5 punts, 44.2 average, long 58
Avery Cunningham: 12 tackles, 1 sack
Saylor Lavallii: 5 carries, 33 yards; 1 catch, 12 yards; 69-yard KO return

Quick Line: Feels like five years ago Central beat Iowa. The strings are unravelling in Mount Pleasant.



Dri Archer: 12 rushes, 222 yards, TD; 2 catches, 0 yards; 1-for-1, 24 yards, TD
Spencer Keith: 6-for-11, 60 yards, TD; 1 catch, 24 yards, TD
Anthony Melchiori: 6 punts, 44.8 average, long 59
Roosevelt Nix: 5 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 sack
Luke Batton: 16 tackles, 13 solo

Quick line: No kickoff returns by Archer because they presumably kicked away from him, because Army is smart. And what a terrific defense, even though they let the Black Knights back into the game in the fourth quarter.



TOLEDO:
David Fluellen: 24 rushes, 188 yards, TD; 1 catch, 9 yards
Bernard Reedy: 11 catches, 237 yards, 2 TD; 89-yard kickoff return touchdown; 407 all-purpose yards
Terrance Owens: 21-for-32, 401 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT; 6 carries, 28 yards, TD
Alonzo Russell: 3 catches, 98 yards, TD
Dan Molls: 18 tackles, INT
Elijah Jones: 6 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 2 QB hurries

EMU:
Bronson Hill: 28 carries, 283 yards, 4 TD; 2 catches, 11 yards
Tyler Benz: 18-for-27, 301 yards, 2 TD, INT
Garrett Hoskins: 7 catches, 103 yards
Tyreese Russell: 2 catches, 51 yards, 2 TD

Quick line: Well, if you missed the third quarter, you missed out on something outrageous. That was the nuttiest frame of football I've seen all year. And then there's this:

Note: that 624 yards is more than EMU's next two best games combined (614).

Akron:
Jawon Chisholm: 28 carries, 177 yards; 5 catches, 55 yards
Dalton Williams: 32-for-53, 298 yards, 4 TD, 2 INT
Jerrod Dillard: 3 catches, 32 yards, 2 TD
Jamel Turner: 5 tackles, 2.5 TFL, 1 sack
Kurt Mangum: 16 tackles, 5 solo

OHIO:

Beau Blankenship: 17 carries, 108 yards; 1 catch, 17 yards
Grant Venham: 4 punts, 45.5 average, long 50
Jelani Woseley: 14 tackles, 8 solo, 2.5 TFL, 1 sack, pass brekaup

Quick line: If the Bobcats grind out eight wins like this, nobody's going to fret over their margin of victory. But that Akron offense is remaining steady, if a little erratic, and they're going to get a second win somewhere.



WMU:
Dareyon Chance: 11 carries, 116 yards; 1 catch, 11 yards
Brian Fields: 18 carries, 96 yards, TD
Josh Schaffer: 6 catches, 90 yards, TD
Freddie Bishop: 10 tackles, 1.5 sacks, FF
Johnnie Simon: 12 tackles, 0.5 TFL, INT, pass breakup

Ball State:
Jahwan Edwards: 23 carries, 138 yards, 3 TD
Keith Wenning: 27-for-43, 265 yards, TD
Willie Snead: 9 catches, 147 yards
Eric Patterson: 4 tackles, TFL, INT
Jonathan Newsome: 4 tackles, 1.5 TFL, 0.5 sacks, pass breakup

Quick line: Tony Martin's last-minute interception-fumble could've been a huge goof and break for WMU, but Jahwan Edwards was way too strong a runner in overtime to let that happen.



Miami:
Nick Harwell: 7 catches, 117 yards
Andy Cruse: 7 catches, 54 yards, TD
Dayonne Nunley: 7 tackles, TFL, INT, pass breakup
Mike Johns: 5 tackles, 2 TFL, 1 sack
Kaleb Patterson: 2/2 FGs (long 44)

BGSU:
Chris Jones: 5 tackles, 3.5 TFL, 2.5 sacks, QB hurry
Anthon Samuel: 22 carries, 171 yards; 3 catches, 25 yards, TD
John Pettigrew: 10 carries, 53 yards, 2 TD; 1 catch, 15 yards
Matt Schilz: 20-for-27, 235 yards, 2 TD, INT
Boo Boo Gates: 8 tackles, pass breakup, 37-yard INT return TD
Bryan Baird: 3 tackles, 2 sacks, FR
Paul Swan: 7 tackles, 2 TFL

Quick line: sacks, sacks, lots of sacks. Well, six sacks. But that's a lot. Guys, BGSU is not a bad team.



Buffalo:
Devon Hughes: 9 catches, 105 yards
Alex Neutz: 7 catches, 81 yards
Khalil Mack: 10 tackles, 1.5 TFL

NIU:
Jordan Lynch: 13-for-20, 232 yards, 2 TD; 15 carries, 129 yards, 2 TD
O-Line (Tyler Loos, Jared Volk, Andrew Ness, Aidan Conlon, Ryan Brown): 0 sacks, 5.3 rushing average
Martel Moore: 8 catches, 133 yards, TD
Joe Windsor: 7 tackles, 4 TFL, 1 sack
Marlon Moore: 5 tackles, 2 INT

Quick line: It's my understanding Jordan Lynch is going to keep having stupidly good games until someone notices. Also, YIKES, Buffalo. A step back, indeed.
