Top Performers for Week 2

Dalvin Cook, Florida State

In what was at one point a close contest against South Florida, Dalvin Cook opened up the game for Florida State with his electrifying runs.

The sophomore tailback scored the first touchdown for the Seminoles 10 minutes into the game on a ridiculous 74-yard run. Cook slashed through Bulls defenders with ease, finishing with a career-high 266 yards on 30 carries and three touchdowns. Cook’s game marked the first time a Florida State player ran for over 200 yards since Sammie Smith in 1998.

Tied after the halftime break, Cook swiftly put the Seminoles back on top early in the third quarter with a 24-yard score, a lead which FSU did not give up for the rest of the game. Cook scored the final touchdown for Florida State with under two minutes to play in the game on a 37-yard run, capping off the 34-14 win over in-state rival South Florida.

Kentrell Brothers, Missouri

Missouri senior linebacker Kentrell Brothers had quite a game against Sun Belt foe Arkansas State. Brothers finished with 16 tackles for the second straight week, but it was his performance defending pass which were most impressive, as the senior finished with two second half interceptions. The biggest pick came in the final moments of the game, when Brothers snagged a James Tabary pass to quickly end Arkansas State’s chance to upset the Tigers.

Willie Quinn, Southern

Willie Quinn, a wide receiver for Southern University, put on a show against Mississippi Valley State with his legs alone. Surprisingly, Quinn didn’t make an impact in his normal position. Instead, Quinn scored twice on special teams (a punt return and kickoff return) and once in a trick play passing touchdown. Quinn finished with 276 total yards in a 50-13 blowout win over the Delta Devils.

Quinn’s first touchdown came on a ridiculous 39-yard punt return that included broken tackles, spin moves and a flip into the end zone to finish it off. Midway through the second quarter, Quinn took a jet sweep only to drop back and find fellow wideout Randall Menard wide open for an 89-yard touchdown. Though the game was never in doubt for the Jaguars, Quinn silenced the Delta Devils for good with a 90-yard kickoff return to extend Southern’s lead to 27 points early in the third quarter.
