Sophomore TB Marlon Mack has been named American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week following his sparkling night (21 carries, 230 yards, two TDs) in Saturday's 44-23 upset of  Temple.

Mack, whose 272 total yards including a 20-yard touchdown catch, also was named National Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards, and the AAC's Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

Mack now leads the conference in rushing (118.3 ypg). The previous leader, Temple's Jahad Thomas, fell to No. 2 (103.5) after being held to 65 yards Saturday.

"We've got some tough seniors (up front), man," said Mack, who had scoring runs of 57 and 48 yards Saturday. "Those guys have just been fighting, so every time I score, it's for them. ... I love those guys. Without them, I wouldn't be where I'm at now."


In 21 career games, Mack already has moved into fourth place (2,106 yards) on USF's career rushing list. His six 100-yard games this year ties Andre Hall's school season record.

Another Bull, sophomore PK Emilio Nadelman, made the AAC's weekly five-player honor roll after converting three field goals Saturday including a career-long 47-yarder.
