CO-OFFENSIVE PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
Brown junior quarterback Seth Rosenbauer (Lima, Ohio) turned running back in the Bears' 21-13 win at Penn, rushing for a career-high 206 yards and two touchdowns. Battling windswept rain at Franklin Field, Rosenbauer displayed his versatility to establish a much-needed run game to counter the elements. He lined up at running back, wide receiver and took direct snaps, while not attempting a pass. Rosenbauer gained 116 yards of his yards in the in the second half and accounted for 12 first downs rushing and another on an eight-yard reception. He scored touchdowns on runs of one and two yards.
Harvard junior running back Paul Stanton, Jr. (Kenner, La.) amassed 235 all-purpose yards as he rushed for a career-high 180 yards and added 55 receiving yards in the Crimson's 23-12 victory at Dartmouth. Stanton carried the ball 24 times and crossed the goal line on two touchdowns from three yards out to opening the scoring in the first quarter and then from two yards in the second quarter following a Harvard fumble recovery. He also caught three passes for 55 yards out of the backfield as the Crimson came away with the win and moved into sole possession of first place.
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Harvard senior defensive tackle Ryan Delisle (Marblehead, Mass.) made two key plays -- recovered a fumble and blocked an extra point -- in the Crimson's 23-12 victory at Dartmouth. On the Big Green's first score to potentially tie the game, Delisle blocked the extra point to keep the Crimson in front. It was Harvard's first blocked PAT since 2010 against Cornell. He also made a big play in the second quarter, recovering a fumble on the Dartmouth 23-yard line with Harvard leading 13-6. The Crimson added a touchdown on the ensuing drive to go up 20-6 and never looked back.
SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Yale senior placekicker/punter Kyle Cazzetta (Slate Hill, N.Y.) provided most of the scoring on a windy, wet day in the Bulldogs' 25-7 win at Columbia. Cazzetta connected on four field goals of 31, 25, 25 and 33 yards to become the first Yale player to boot four field goals in a game since Mark Murawczyk hit four field goals against Dartmouth on Oct. 14, 1998. He also split the uprights on his one PAT attempt.
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Yale freshman defensive back Jason Alessi (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) played a big role in a four-interception day for the Bulldogs in their 25-7 victory at Columbia with a game-high two interceptions and a team-high nine total tackles. His first pick set up Yale for a Kyle Cazetta field goal that extended the lead to 19-0. His second one came on the first play of a fourth-quarter drive that he returned 30 yards to Lions' eight-yard line.
