Brian Hill Earns College Sports Madness Honor
Wyoming Cowboys sophomore Brian Hill has been selected the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.
It stems from Hill's performance in last Saturday's game against Eastern Michigan. He ran for 242 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries. It's Hill's second 200-yard rushing game of his young career. He averaged 11.5 yards per carry. His total is the second best single-game performance in the NCAA this season. It ranks as the fourth best single-game performance in Cowboy football history.
Hill registered nine runs of 10 or more yards. They included carries of: 10, 11, 13, 14, 14, 16, 20, 40 and 65 yards. His 40-yard scamper set up the Cowboys' first touchdown of the day on their first possession of the game. His 65-yard run went for a touchdown on Wyoming’s first drive of the second half. Hill also had a rush of 10 yards on that drive to account for all 75 yards on the scoring drive. He also added a five-yard TD run later in the third quarter.
This week’s College Sports Madness National Offensive Player of the Week was Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, who rushed for 266 yards against South Florida.
