Insiders Game Balls - Rutgers

The Bearcats got their first Big East win of the season and we've got some Insiders Game Balls to pass out for those who made it possible.

Game MVP Game Ball

 

Kevin Huber: Punter

 

The senior All-American had a career high of nine punts on the day and played a giant role in keeping Rutgers on a long field.  Huber’s punts included a career best 64-yard punt as well as a career high of 418 punting yards.  But the reason for him earning Game MVP Game Ball honors was his six punts inside the 20 yard line.

 

Offensive Game Balls

 

D.J. Woods: Wide Receiver

 

The freshman enjoyed his best day as a Bearcat with 4 catches for 67 yards.  As the Bearcats continue in Big East play, Woods will have a chance to catch a few teams by surprise and be a major factor in the success of the passing game.

 

Marcus Barnett: Wide Receiver

 

Bones has been coming along and is starting to look like the player that got Bearcat fans excited last season.  He also had his biggest day of this season with 79 yards receiving.

 

Chazz Anderson: Quarterback

 

Two starts in the books and Anderson may not have tossed a touchdown pass, but he did manage the offense and didn’t make any silly turnovers in the process.  For the day Anderson went 21-29 for 239 yards and picked up a rushing touchdown as well.

 

Jacob Ramsey: Running Back

 

Ramsey had the most carries on the day with 14 for 85 yards (avg 6.1 yards per carry).  Would have liked to seen Jacob get more carries in this game.

 

Defensive Game Balls

 

Ryan Manalac: Linebacker

 

The senior linebacker continues to tear it up with 8 total tackles on the day moving him into 14-th place in the Big East and second on the team behind Mike Mickens.

 

Torry Cornett: Linebacker

With 7 total tackles Cornett continues to show the play Bearcat coaches saw during camp.  What made Cornett even more valuable on Saturday were his two pass breakups.

 

Lamonte Nelms: Defensive End

 

Nelms is starting to find his way on this year’s defense and posted 5 total tackles with two for loss including a sack.

 

Connor Barwin: Defensive End

 

Barwin had a tough assignment going against big offensive tackle Anthony Davis who stands 6-foot-6, 325-pounds.  Using speed, a quick first step and his strength the former tight-end posted 4 total tackles with two sacks while also earning a half credit on a tackle for a loss.

 

Special Teams Game Balls

 

Jake Rogers: Kicker

 

Rogers continues to hit for the Bearcats after some early season struggles.  On Saturday he hit for a 50-yard field goal while also hitting a 19-yard and an extra point giving him high scoring honors on the day.
