Grothe gets Big East offensive honors

8

September

USF quarterback Matt Grothe has earned Big East Offensive Player of the Week honors after passing for 346 yards and three touchdowns in the Bulls' 31-24 overtime win at Central Florida.

Grothe also rushed for a game-high 54 yards, giving him 400 yards of total offense, and he provided the winning score, hitting receiver Taurus Johnson for a 25-yard touchdown in overtime.

Grothe now owns three of the top four total-offense games in USF history -- Saturday's game ranks third. He had 457 yards last season against Cincinnati and had 409 against Syracuse as a freshman. Marquel Blackwell is second on the list with a 420-yard game against Western Kentucky in 2000.

Grothe won the Big East's weekly honors twice as a freshman for games against UCF and Syracuse.
