Ivy League Weekly Awards

 
From the Ivy League...
 
CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
Brown senior tailback John Spooney (Northfield, Ohio) ran to a record-setting day in the Bears' 27-0 win over Penn. Spooney set an Ivy League record with two 90-plus yard runs for touchdowns, becoming the first player in League history to  accomplish the feat in the same day and just the second to do so in the same season. The reigning League champion in the 100 meters scored on the game's first play from scrimmage, running 93 yards for a touchdown, at the time, the third-longest rush ever at Brown. He later outran the Penn defense again for a 94-yard score, the second-longest run in school history and tied for the ninth longest in Ivy history. He finished the game with 232 rushing yards, the sixth-best, single-game effort in school history

Princeton junior quarterback Quinn Epperly (Knoxville, Tenn.) threw his way into NCAA Division I football history, completing 29-straight passes, in the Tigers' 53-20 victory over Cornell. Epperly accounted for six touchdowns (three passing and three rushing) and now leads the Football Championship Subdivision in points responsible for game at 28.0. He completed 32-of-35 passes with no interceptions for 325 yards through the air and added 69 yards on the ground as Princeton took over sole possession of first place with the win. Epperly's big day moved him into second in the FCS in passing efficiency (179.6 rating) and completion percentage (74.9).

DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Brown senior defensive back Emory Polley (University Heights, Ohio) led the Bears' defense to a 27-0 shutout victory over Penn with two interceptions to go along with four total tackles (three solo). Polley's first interception came deep in Brown territory, at the Bears' four-yard line, keeping Penn off the scoreboard. He picked off a second pass at the Brown 18-yard line and ran it back 40 yards in the fourth quarter to preserve the shutout. Polley now leads the FCS in interceptions with five picks through seven games.

SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Harvard junior placekicker Andrew Flesher (Little Rock, Ark.) posted his second-straight, double-digit scoring output in the Crimson's 24-21 win over Dartmouth. Flesher booted a game-winning, 23-yard field goal with 48 seconds left for his third field goal in the game. He also connected from 34 and 32 yards out. Flesher added one PAT to finish with 10 points.

ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Yale freshman running back Candler Rich (Newnan, Ga.) had an impressive outing as the Bulldogs posted four rushing touchdowns and three passing touchdowns in a 53-12 win over Columbia. Rich accounted for two of the rushing touchdowns and one of the receiving scores for his first collegiate touchdown catch. He rushed for 101 yards on 22 carries and added two receptions for 28 yards.
