Grothe gets Big East offensive honors again
USF quarterback Matt Grothe has picked up Big East Offensive Player of the Week honors for the second time this season after leading the Bulls' 41-10 rout of N.C. State on Saturday.
Grothe, who completed his first 11 passes and threw for 148 yards in the first quarter alone, finished 20 of 29 for 259 yards and a touchdown and rushed for a game-high 68 yards as well.
Grothe earned Big East honors after USF's 31-24 win against Central Florida, and he made the league's honor roll after USF's win against Kansas. He's the first offensive player to win weekly honors twice this season; Pitt linebacker Scott McKillop has won defensive honors twice.
