We've all heard of Leonard Fournette. You'd have to be living under a rock not to know the names Derrick Henry or Trevone Boykin. But, this article isn't about the known stars of college football. It's about the individuals who opened eyes with career-defining performances in the biggest week on the CFB slate to date. Here's our list of the 4 Players Who Made A Name For Themselves In Week 11 Of College Football.
QB Keenan Reynolds -- Navy Midshipmen
Reynolds broke former Wisconsin Badgers running back Montee Ball's NCAA record for career rushing touchdowns on Saturday, scampering for four scores to up his mark to 81 in the team's 55-14 drubbing of SMU. Reynolds also threw a 72-yard TD pass to give #20 Navy a win in its first game as a ranked team since 2004.
DL Jonathan Allen -- Alabama Crimson Tide
#2 Alabama recorded nine sacks in its 31-6 road obliteration of #17 Mississippi State on Sunday, and Allen led the charge with three. He also inadvertently smacked head coach Nick Saban while running out on the field in the first quarter, but we're sure he won't have to run too many wind sprints as a result.
RB Josh Adams -- Notre Dame Fighting Irish
#4 Notre Dame kept on chugging towards a potential College Football Playoff berth with a 28-7 home win over Wake Forest, thanks partly to Adams' 98-yard touchdown run -- the longest scoring play from scrimmage and longest overall running play in Notre Dame history.
QB Marquise Williams -- North Carolina Tar Heels
Williams rushed for 101 yards and three scores and also threw for a touchdown in the #23 North Carolina Tar Heels' 59-21 obliteration of the Miami Hurricanes. Sitting at 9-1, Williams has the Tar Heels one win away from an ACC Coastal Division title and rapidly ascending on the College Football Playoff dark horse ladder.Back to the NCAA Newsfeed
