Here’s the weekly Big East Honor Roll
BIG EAST OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Montel Harris • Sr. • RB • Temple • Jacksonville, Fla.
Harris rushed for 133 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns and had three receptions for 15 yards to help Temple to a 38-27 win against USF in the Owls’ BIG EAST opener. A transfer from Boston College, Harris turned in his first 100-yard game in a Temple uniform and the 23rd 100-yard game of his career — the most of any active Football Bowl Subdivision player.
BIG EAST DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Brandon Sharpe • Sr. • DE • Syracuse • Virginia Beach, Va.
Sharpe had seven tackles, including four sacks and six tackles for loss, totalling 45 yards, to key Syracuse’s 14-13 win against Pittsburgh in the Orange’s BIG EAST opener. He led a defensive line that limited the Panthers to just 27 rushing yards and came up with a sack and two tackles for loss on Pittsburgh’s final possession. The four sacks and six tackles for loss are both good for second on Syracuse’s single-game chart.
