Ivy League Awards (11/14) / Harris on honor roll
The Ivy League football awards press release:
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Penn sophomore wide receiver Justin Watson (Bridgeville, Pa.) put up one of the best offensive performances in school history to launch the Quakers to a 35-25 win at No. 12/13 Harvard. On a ferociously windy day, Watson finished with 249 all-purpose yards -- a career-high 149 receiving yards and a career-best 100 yards rushing -- to finish just outside the top-five best offensive outputs in the program's 139-year history. He added a pair of long touchdowns, including the back-breaking 79-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter. With Penn leading by just three in the fourth quarter, Watson took a handoff and ran 79 yards to give Penn a 10-point lead it did not relinquish. He accounted for 100 of Penn's 164 rushing yards on just five carries and 149 of Penn's 245 receiving yards on seven catches.
Watson's Statistics for the Week
5 car. for 100 yds., 1 TD, 7 rec. for 149 yds., 1 TD
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Dartmouth senior cornerback Vernon Harris (Succasunna, N.J.) set the tone early, picking off two passes in the first quarter, to contribute to the Big Green's seven recovered turnovers in a 34-18 victory at Brown. Harris’ first interception came on Brown's first play from scrimmage in which a receiver caught a lateral then threw downfield, only to have him blow up the trick play. Late in the first quarter, he plucked a pass from the air and returned it 29 yards to the Brown 25-yard line. He also posted a trio of solo stops on the day. Harris' coverage contributed to holding the third-ranked passing offense in the FCS to a mere 95 yards through the air.
Harris' Statistics for the Week
3 tkls. (3 solo), 2 INTs
SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEKDartmouth sophomore running back/return specialist Ryder Stone (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) provided what could be considered the most pivotal score of the game in the Big Green's victory at Brown. With a nine-yard touchdown to his credit on the day already and Dartmouth leading 14-6, Stone gave the Big Green a boost, fielding the kickoff at the 11-yard line and weaving his way through the coverage 89 yards for a touchdown. It was the Big Green's first kickoff return for a touchdown in three years. Dartmouth went on to build up a 34-6 lead into the fourth quarter and eventually got the 34-18 win.
Stone's Statistics for the Week89 yd. KOR for TD, 15 rush yds., 1 TD

Shelton-Mosley threw for a touchdown on the first passing attempt of his young career, connecting with junior tight end Anthony Firkser on a 28-yard scoring connection in the second quarter. He ran the ball once for 21 yards and made four catches for a total of 11 yards
