Offense

QB Kurt Hess, Youngstown State

6-3, 230, Sr., Dayton (Ohio) Chaminade-Julienne

 Hess threw for a career-high 311 yards and four touchdowns in the Penguins' 59-21 win over Illinois State. He also added a rushing score in the win. Hess was 17-of-21 on the night in the win over the Redbirds. Hess had touchdown passes of 67, 40, 10 and two yards in the win. He also added a 16-yard rush in the third quarter. It was the sixth time in his career that Hess threw at least four touchdown passes in a game. It was the second time in his career that he threw for more than 300 yards and it was his 22nd career 200-yard plus passing game, a school mark.

Defense

CB Winston Wright, South Dakota State

5-10, 190, Sr., Lee's Summit (Mo.) West High

 Wright intercepted two passes -- both of which the Jackrabbit offense turned into touchdowns -- in South Dakota State's 38-14 victory at Western Illinois on Oct. 12. His first-quarter interception helped give SDSU a 14-0 lead, while his interception on the first play of the fourth quarter led to the Jackrabbits' final score of the day. Wright added a pair of tackles as SDSU held Western Illinois to only 118 yards through the air and picked off four passes on the afternoon.

Special Teams

WR Ryan Smith, North Dakota State

 Smith was North Dakota State's second-leading runner with 142 all-purpose yards in the 41-26 homecoming win over Missouri State. He returned the game's opening kickoff 32 yards and one possession later turned his first punt return of the season into an 85-yard touchdown for a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter. He also caught four passes for 28 yards. Smith's punt return TD was the third of his career, which is tied for the active lead among all Division I players.

Newcomer
