Top Performers Week 11

Jake Rudock, Michigan

In a fast-paced, high-scoring match with Indiana, Michigan’s Jake Rudock threw for six touchdowns -- including two in overtime -- to propel the Wolverines to a 48-41 double overtime win over the Hoosiers. While Rudock’s play throughout the game was impressive, his performance in crunch time kept Michigan’s slim Playoff hopes alive. Trailing by a touchdown with two minutes left in regulation, Rudock orchestrated a game-tying drive and found receiver Jehu Chesson for the duo’s fourth touchdown with five seconds to play to tie the game and force overtime. Indiana struck first in overtime with a touchdown, but Rudock responded with a 21-yard score to Jake Butt in the first overtime and the game-winner to Amara Darboh from 25 yards out. Rudock finished with over 500 total yards, including 440 through the air, and completed 33-of-46 passing attempts.

Elandon Roberts, Houston

Houston’s comeback win over AAC foe Memphis was impressive, but Roberts’ defensive performance was just as astonishing. Roberts terrorized the Tigers with 18 total tackles, one sack and one interception. Roberts’ interception midway through the fourth quarter stopped a once-promising Memphis drive and gave Houston the ball back at the Tiger 39-yard line. Houston converted the field position into another touchdown to draw within one score. Houston scored once more in the game to beat Memphis, 35-34.

Cyrus Jones, Alabama

Jones drew first blood for the Crimson Tide in their bout with Mississippi State, taking a punt return 69 yards to the end zone five minutes into the second quarter to put Alabama up 7-0. The Crimson Tide cruised from there, score 27 more points to beat the Bulldogs, 31-6, and improve their resume in search of a second-straight College Football Playoff berth. While his biggest impact came on special teams, Jones also finished the game with four tackles and two pass deflections.
