The honorees are listed here with their achievements and their school, position, class, and hometown.
Jordan Chunn, Troy, RB, Sr., Gurley, Ala.
The honors for Chunn come after the Trojans stunned AP No. 22 LSU 24-21 in Baton Rouge on Saturday night. Chunn ran for a career-high 191 yards and a touchdown. He broke loose for a 74-yard run early in the second half, and later scored from a yard out to put Troy on top 17-0. The senior has rushed for 490 yards and six touchdowns in five games this season, averaging 5.4 yards per carry.
Richard McQuarley, New Mexcio, RB, Sr., Meridian, Miss.
He carried the ball 11 times for 179 yards and five touchdowns in New Mexico’s 56-38 victory over Mountain Division foe Air Force. He averaged just over 16 yards per carry. The five rushing scores tied the UNM single game record. The touchdowns came from 3, 6, 5, 63 and 65 yards out.
Jalen Guyton, North Texas, WR, So., Allen, Tex.
Guyton had a career-day for the Mean Green last Saturday in their 43-28 win at Southern Miss. He caught 14 passes for 211 yards, both season-highs for any Mean Green receiver this season, and career-highs for Guyton. He also caught a touchdown, his team-high fifth of the season. Through just five games, Guyton became the first Mean Green receiver to catch more than 10 passes in a single game, and the first to surpass the 200-yard mark in a game since Carlos Harris did so (15 catches for 216) against Southern Miss during the 2014 season. He caught five passes of 15 or more yards, including his game-long 53-yarder in the third quarter. Behind Guyton’s performance, the Mean Green improved to 2-0 in conference play for the first time since 2004.

He then sealed the win with a 50-yard interception return for a score in the fourth quarter to give Utah State its final margin of victory.
Marcus Green, Louisiana-Monroe, WR/RS, Jr., Pontotoc, Miss.
