Kyren Williams Among Five Players on Hornung Award Week 3 Honor Roll

Notre Dame’s Kryen Williams leads five players on the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll for Week 3 of the college football season.

The Hornung Award is given to college football’s most versatile player.

Williams scored on a 39-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, and his 51-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter put the Irish’s win over Purdue out of reach. Williams set up the final score with a 23-yard punt return. He finished the game with 91 yards rushing, 47 yards receiving and three punt returns for 30 yards.

Also on the Honor Roll for Week 3:

USC’s Gary Bryant Jr. scored two different ways in the Trojans’ comeback win over Washington State. He hauled in a 32-yard scoring strike just before halftime, then ran three yards for a touchdown for what proved to be the winning score. His two kickoff returns set up scoring drives.

Utah’s Britain Covey scored twice in the Utes’ 33-32 road loss to San Diego State. Covey scored on an 80-yard punt return, and then scored on a two-yard run. He finished the game with six punt returns for 132 yards, eight receptions for 46 yards and one kickoff return for 25 yards.

Penn State’s Jahan Dotson touched the ball four different ways and scored once in the Nittany Lion’s 28-20 win over Auburn in Happy Valley. Dotson’s four-yard touchdown reception opened scoring, and his 22-yard pass completion deep into Auburn territory led to a Nittany Lion score in the second quarter.

East Carolina’s Tyler Snead touched the ball five different ways and accounted for scores two different ways in the Pirates’ 42-38 road win over Marshall. His 24-yard touchdown catch opened ECU’s scoring and his 27-yard touchdown pass with 2:27 to go help erase a 10-point deficit. Snead had five catches for 80 yards, carried the ball once, returned a punt and a kickoff, and accounted for three first downs.
