Offensive Player of the Week: QB Tanner Mordecai, SMU Mustangs

It’s hard to find a more productive passing performance than SMU quarterback Tanner Mordecai on Saturday. He managed a 75% completion rate for the game as he threw for 369 yards and nine touchdowns on 37 attempts.

Mordecai finished with a passing rating of 96.3 in the first review – the highest of the 2022 season of any FBS quarterback by a comfortable margin.

Signal caller SMU spent 15 dropbacks under pressure and managed just one sack taken and zero turnover-worthy throws in the game.

From a clean pocket, Mordecai scored a 98.1, hitting 22 of 27 for 301 yards and seven touchdowns.

Defensive Player of the Week and True Rookie of the Week: CB Benjamin Morrison, Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Notre Dame rookie cornerback Benjamin Morrison took over for the Irish a few weeks into the season, and quickly became the target of offense by opponents, including the Clemson Tigers in Week 10. In the end, Clemson regretted doing so. . Morrison’s performance in the Notre Dame victory will end up being arguably the best single-game match by any first-year player in 2022.

Morrison saw 13 targets in coverage and allowed three first downs while recording an interception to put the Irishman in the red zone and another that took 96 yards home.

It was only the second pick of six against Clemson’s offense since the 2017 season, and it was only the third multi-interception game for a defensive back against the Tigers that the PFF has recorded.

The true Notre Dame rookie also totaled a forced incompleteness and three pass stoppages for the game for an elite 90.5 coverage score.
