Offense

QB Jacob Adams, Jr., Washington & Jefferson

Adams had a career-high 432 yards as he completed a career-high 30 passes. His 12-yard pass to Andrew Wolf with 30 seconds remaining broke a 43-43 tie and gave W&J a 50-43 win on Homecoming. It was one of five touchdown strikes on the day for the junior, who ranks second in the country in both yards and TDs. Two receivers topped 100 yards, and four had at least 70 yards.

RB Josh Parks
Sr., St. Thomas

Parks had TD runs of 92 and 60 yards and rushed 22 times for 256 yards at St. John's. Parks' three touchdowns now give him 35 in three seasons, while his 256 yards is a career high.

Gillach turned 14 completions into an SJU-record 256 yards and two scores in a 40-20 win against then-No. 3 St. Thomas. The 14 receptions were the most by a Johnnie since Blake Elliott caught 15 against Bethel on Nov. 8, 2003; John Gagliardi's record-breaking 409th collegiate victory.

WR Colt Morgan
So., Case Western Reserve

TE Ryan Curtiss
Jr., Muhlenberg

Curtiss caught eight passes for 150 yards and a touchdown in the Mules' 34-31 win at Thomas More. His 51-yard touchdown gave Muhlenberg a 21-17 lead just 50 seconds after the Saints had gone in front, and he caught passes of 20 and 29 yards on the Mules' game-tying fourth-quarter drive.

Defense

DE Peter Pigatti
So., Washington U.

Pigatti recorded five tackles, 3.5 sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss in a 17-10 upset win vs. then-No. 12 Wheaton. WashU's defense limited Wheaton to three points in the final 58 minutes of play. WashU also held Wheaton to minus-3 yards rushing, with 24 yards lost on Pigatti's sacks.

Brown totaled six tackles (five solo), forced a fumble with a strip sack in the third quarter, recovered a fumble in the first quarter, and added a quarterback hurry.

 

LB Hanif Jones
Jr., Stevenson

Jones had two interceptions and three tackles in Stevenson's 20-6 win at Widener as the Mustangs held their fifth straight opponent under 300 total yards. His first interception and 10-yard return at the Widener 19 set up Stevenson's first touchdown in the second quarter, while his second pick came in the fourth quarter after Stevenson had found the end zone twice to go up by two scores.

LB Garrett Bishop
Jr., Westminster (Pa.)

S Dillon Nelson
Sr., Manchester

Nelson snagged three interceptions and returned two for touchdowns in a 21-17 win over Bluffton. His 43-yard interception return for a touchdown with 7:07 left in the fourth quarter were the final points in the 21-17 win. He also returned an interception 40 yards for a TD in the second quarter. His third pick came with 1:09 left and stalled Bluffton's potential game winning drive.

S Sean Carroll
So., Salisbury

Carroll turned in an impressive performance as Salisbury downed Montclair State 17-15 in a battle of unbeatens.

His forced fumble help set up the Sea Gulls third straight scoring drive of the game, making it 17-0.

S Max Jackson
Sr., St. John's

St. Thomas was inches from making it a one-score game early in the fourth quarter, but Alex Sais forced a fumble on the one-yard line and Jackson scooped it up for a 99-yard return for a touchdown. The momentum-shifting fumble return for a touchdown tied the longest in school history. He tied for the team lead with nine tackles (five solo) and broke up two passes.

CB Travis Brown
So., Carleton

Travis Brown picked off two passes. Both plays were pivotal in a 36-34 win vs. Augsburg, as his first interception came in the end zone with the score tied 7-7, preventing an Auggie TD, while his second turned into a 39-yard pick-six to keep Carleton on top.
