Temple’s Brandon McManus and Bernard Pierce were named College Football Performance Awards national player of the week honorable mentions on Sunday. This is McManus’ third consecutive week being honored.
The placekicker/punter earned this week’s honor after averaging 46.3 yards on three punts in Saturday’s 42-14 victory over Army. Pierce, a junior tailback, rushed for 157 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries. He missed last week’s victory over Miami of Ohio with a concussion.
