After posting shy numbers against Arkansas in Week 6, a potential first rounder in next year’s draft, Derrick Henry, used this week’s away game as a chance to rebound against an Aggies squad that ranks 98th in rushing defense (allow 195.17 yards per game).
3. Akrum Wadley, RB, Iowa
26 carries, 204 yards, 4 TD vs. Northwestern
Other than the Cinderella story brewing in Ann Arbor, another Big Ten member in Iowa plans to implement a threat strategy to scare Ohio State. This week against Northwestern, who triumphed then faltered, the Iowa offense positioned itself on the shoulders of Akrum Wadley, who stepped up for one of Week 6’s top rushing performers in terms of yardage, Jordan Canzeri.
2. Luke Falk, QB, Washington State
Although Falk tossed two interceptions, that number would be counter balanced by his six touchdown effort, capped off with 407 yards, against Oregon State.
