The weekend is over and the landscape of the championship is gradually becoming clearer. There were a number of players worth noting, but the following are our players of the week.
Offensive Player of the Week
Jake Haener (Fresno State)
Talk about triumphant returns. The Bulldogs looked dead in the water, trailing 28-10 late in the second half. An explosive performance by Haener led the Bulldogs to an improbable, come-from-behind victory. Haener finished the game completing 34 of 45 passes for 394 yards and three touchdowns.
Defensive Player of the Week
Viliami Fehoko (State of San José)
Fehoko had one of the most dominant defensive performances I’ve seen this year. He was in the backfield every play wreaking havoc on the wolf pack. Fehoko finished the game with 12 tackles, 3 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss.
Special Teams Player of the Week
John Hoyland (Wyoming)
Hoyland proved to be the difference in this game, nailing both field goal attempts and all three extra point attempts.
Freshman of the week

Green had his best performance of his young career. Green completed 24/31 attempts for 305 yards and two touchdowns. Green added another touchdown on the ground.
