Gameballs: Our stars of the game
CB Tavious Polo
A week after being suspended, Polo just may have been playing with a chip on his shoulder. The senior had his first interception since last year’s game vs. Wyoming and also had a pass breakup.
LB Malik Eugene
Speaking of extra motivation, Eugene had an awful game vs. USF last week, but rebounded with perhaps the best game in his career. Eugene recorded 14 total tackles, assisted on a sack and recovered a fumble that was erroneously credited to Cory Henry.
RB Alfred Morris
Morris rushed for 153 yards and two touchdowns and had his best game since last year’s finale vs. FIU.
