For the fourth week in a row, a Boise State Bronco has been named Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week as running back Jeremy McNichols took home his third such honor of 2016 Monday morning.
It is the third time over this four-week stretch that McNichols has claimed the Mountain West's top weekly prize, and fourth time in his career.
McNichols earned his latest accolade with a record-breaking performance in Saturday night's 28-23 win over Colorado State. He broke Cedric Minter's 38-year-old school record with 40 carries in the contest, going for a career-high 217 yards and two touchdowns in addition to catching four passes for 47 yards to produce a career-best 264 all-purpose yards.
If you ask Coach Harsin about the running backs workload he says he isn’t worried about the running backs workload and says he isn’t worried that Mcnichols was used to much and that he will be ready to go Thursday against BYU.
“I think Jeremy feels great today. His come out of games actually feeling pretty good each week so I feel like he is going to be fine,” said, Head Coach Bryan Harsin.
No. 14/14 Boise State (6-0, 3-0 MW) hosts BYU (4-3) in non-conference action this Thursday at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN.
