A Mountain West running back and an ACC defensive back have claimed weekly Camp honors, the Walter Camp Foundation announced Sunday morning.
Colorado State’s Kapri Bibbs and Duke’s Devon Edwards were named as the Camp National Offense and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, for their Week 11 performances.
Bibbs’ 312 rushing yards and four touchdowns in the Rams’ 38-17 win over Nevada broke the school record of 310 set by current Notre Dame assistant Tony Alford in 1989. That total represents the most yards rushing at the FBS level for a running back this season, surpassing the 304 yards by Army’s Terry Baggett in the middle of last month. Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch rushed for 316 a week after Baggett’s performance.
Bibbs is the first-ever Colorado State Ram to earn Camp honors.
In the Blue Devils’ win over North Carolina State, Edwards returned two interceptions for touchdowns while also taking a kickoff back 100 yards for another score. Incredibly, the pair of pick-sixes came in a span of 10 seconds with less than four minutes left in the fourth quarter to seal Duke’s fifth straight win and seventh on the season.
The redshirt freshman became the first player to score three non-offensive touchdowns in the same game since Oklahoma’s Antonio Perkins returned three punts for a touchdown against UCLA in 2003.
