Bo Bolen, Weber State, Sophomore, Running Back/Kick Returner, 5-9, 200, Aurora, Colorado

He had a six-yard TD blast midway through the second quarter to cut Portland State's lead to 20-16 and added a 19-yard scoring scamper with 2:03 remaining in the first half to put the Wildcats to within 27-22.
Bolen's kickoff returns repeatedly gave Weber State good field position in the game.
Joel Bradford, Chattanooga, Junior, Wide Receiver, 6-0, 165, Chattanooga, Tennessee
Bradford caught 15 passes for 274 yards and one of four Moc touchdown in the fourth quarter as Chattanooga scored 26 unanswered points in the final period to beat Furman 36-28 on Saturday.

The junior receiver averaged 18.3 yards per catch on a day when Chattanoog passed for 432 yards. Bradford has 55 catches (15.9 average) for 875 yards and five TDs this season to rank him first in receiving yards per game (125 yard average) and fourth natioonally in receptions per game (7.86).
Kyle Glazier, Western Illinois, Senior, Linebacker, 6-1, 220, Geneseo, Illinois
Glazier recorded the third-most tackles ever by a Western Illinois player finishing with 25 in the Leathernecks' 31-28 Missouri Valley Conference loss at Missouri State.
The 25 tackles were the most by a Leatherneck player since Buchanan Award winner Ed Hartwell recorded 26 against Elon in 1999. Glazier had 12 solo stops and 13 assists and one tackle for a yard loss during the game.
Glazier became the only Western player ever to record two 21-plus tackle games ever, let alone in the same season or month. He now has the top tackle performance in the FCS and two of the top four (tied for 3rd, 21 at South Dakota State).
Glazier leads FCS in total tackles with 103 for an average of 12.88 per game. He has 43 solo stops and 60 assists this season.
Josh Lewis, McNeese State, Sophomore, Place Kicker, 6-0, 180, Denham Springs, Louisiana
Lewis kicked a 52-yard field goal as time expired to give McNeese a 13-10 victory over Southeastern Louisiana last Saturday on the road in a key Southland Conference game. It was third longest in McNeese history and a career long for Lewis.
It was the third time in his career he delivered a game-winning kick, but it was the first time this season. Lewis scored total of 7 of the Cowboys’ 13 points. He also kicked 38-yard field goal and a PAT. Lewis has now made his last six field goal attempts.
Lewis also won games last year with an 18-yard field goal with four seconds left at Appalachian State and a 28-yard field goal with a little over a minute remaining gave McNeese a win over Texas State.
Jeremy Moses, Stephen F. Austin, Senior, Quarterback, 6-0, 195, Baytown, Texas
Moses completed 30-of-53 passes for 418 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions to lead the Lumberjacks to a kry 31-28 Southland Conference victory over Sam Houston State. It was the 85th installment of the Battle of the Piney Woods at Reliant Stadium in Houston.
Moses tossed touchdown passes of six, 58, 34 and 30 yards in the first three quarters to give the Lumberjacks a 28-14 lead as SFA held off its rival.
The senior passer set the Southland Conference career record for total offense and became the first conference player to record 11,000 yards of total offense in his career. With four games remaining in the regular season, Moses has 11,403 yards of total offense.
Moses ranks second nationally in passing yards and completions, third in TD passes with 20 and third in total offense (319.71).
