SMU WR Trey Quinn Named a National Player of the Week

SMU wide receiver Trey Quinn has been named The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week for the eighth week of the college football season.

Quinn became the first player in this century to register at least 15 receptions in three consecutive games as he had 17 catches for a career-high 186 yards in SMU's 31-28 win at Cincinnati. Quinn's 17th catch against the Bearcats was a 28-yard reception in overtime on fourth-and-26 to set up the deciding field goal, and he had three receptions for first downs on a fourth-quarter drive that put the Mustangs ahead 28-20. Quinn, who accounted for 11 of SMU's 26 first downs for the game, enters this week as the national leader in receptions (10.1 per game) and is fifth nationally in receiving yards (110.4 ypg).
