Starting with some volleyball news, a pair of seniors were recognized for their performances in wins over Stanford (#1 at the time) and Texas A&M last weekend. Haleigh Washington and Abby Detering each received National Player of the Week honors.
In James Franklin’s press conference yesterday, he singled out Quadree Henderson as a player on Pitt that the coaching staff is concerned about. PennLive’s Greg Pickel details the speedy return threat for the Panthers and how he fared last year.
We’ve all had time to peruse Patrick’s Big Ten power rankings following the first week of play, but you may not have seen Pat Forde’s Conference Power Rankings over at Yahoo Sports. A strong week one showing has the Big Ten on top. Yes, the name Pat is a prerequisite to rank college sports teams.
Saquon Barkley was named Big Ten player of the week by the Rose Bowl, in what will be just the first of many weekly awards racked up by the sensational running back this season.
