FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK

John Weidenaar, Montana State, Freshman, 6-7, 267, LT, Manhattan, MT

Very rarely do offensive linemen garner individual attention for their performances, let alone a freshman, but Weidenaar helped anchor an impressive offensive output in Montana State's 55-10 victory over North Dakota. The local product played a crucial role in protecting and paving the way the way for MSU's dangerous playmakers. Weidenarr, who has started every game this season, helped the Bobcats rush for 436 yards and total a school-record 695 yards of offense. His unit didn't allow a sack in the game, while running backs Cody Kirk and Orenzo Davis topped the 100-yard rushing plateau, gaining 160 and 145 yards, respectively.
