There were some pretty big performances by individual athletes in Week 3 of the 2016 college football season, but two stood out. Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington and Michigan do-it-all man Jabrill Peppers were honored by being named the Walter Camp Players of the Week.
FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman reported that the two players had been given the awards after their games against Pittsburgh and Colorado respectively.

Washington had a huge game in helping the Cowboys beat the Panthers in a 45-38 shootout. He caught nine passes for 296 yards, the most in a game in the FBS this year, and two touchdowns, including a 91-yard score.
Peppers threw his name into the Heisman Trophy conversation in a 45-28 victory over the Buffaloes. He recorded nine tackles, 3.5 for loss, a sack and 208 all-purpose yards, including a game-sealing touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
The Cowboys next face off against Baylor and the Wolverines take on Penn State. Both games take place next Saturday.
