USF’s Mack Earns Weekly Honors After Huge Day

230-yard, three TD effort propels sophomore running back to weekly awards from three organizations

Kicker Nadelman named to American Honor Roll

 

TAMPA, NOV. 16, 2015 – After an explosive 230-yard rushing effort and three touchdowns in USF’s electric, 44-23 upset of No. 21 Temple Saturday, sophomore running back Marlon Mack (Sarasota) has earned weekly honors from three separate organizations. Sophomore kickerEmilio Nadelman (Miami) was also named to the American Conference weekly Honor Roll.

 

Mack was named the National Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Awards after averaging 11.0 yards per carry and scoring on explosive runs of 57 and 48 yards in the Bulls’ victory. Mack caught three passes for 42 yards and added a 20-yard touchdown catch, the first of his career, in USF’s first victory over a ranked opponent in Raymond James Stadium since 2009.

 

Mack was named the American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the first time on his career. The 2014 Conference Rookie of the Year eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing for the second straight season on Saturday, becoming just the second USF player to post two such seasons, and his 230 yards marked a season high in the conference, eclipsing teammate Quinton Flowers 201-yard effort vs. SMU. Mack totaled his rushing yards against The American's leading rushing defense and the 12th-ranked rushing defense in the FBS, which entered the game allowing 110 yards per game.

 

Nadelman’s career day helped propel USF to the upset of No. 21 Temple. Nadelman made a career-best 47-yard field goal in the second half and added field goals of 24 and 37 yards in the second half to extend USF’s lead as Temple battled back from a 31-10 deficit. Nadelman was perfect on night, as his three field goals marked a career-best and he added a 5-for-5 effort on extra points for a career-best 14 points, the sixth-best total in USF history.

 

Mack was also named the American Offensive Player of the Week by College Sports Madness. Mack moved into fourth on USF’s career rushing charts with 2,106 yards and tied a USF season record with his sixth 100-yard game of the season.

 

Mack enters Friday’s primetime clash with Cincinnati at Raymond James Stadium with 1,065 yards on the year, just 309 shy of the USF season record of 1,374 set by Andre Hall in 2005. He currently leads the American Conference and ranks 16thin the FBS averaging 118 yards rushing per game.

Mack is a special special player. His NFL stock is going to blow up big time next year if he continue to get better.

That Hall record looks like it will be broken. It's crazy how good Mack is. Phenomenal player

He should probably be AAC Player of the Year if we finish strong.

For emphasis-

Mack totaled his rushing yards against The American's leading rushing defense and the 12th-ranked rushing defense in the FBS, which entered the game allowing 110 yards per game.

Hope he buys his line a coke, they should be getting some honors too. Mack is earning everything he gets, though, really fun to watch when he's at 100%.

Also hope Nadelman has turned a corner, we need a reliable kicker going into the postseason and next year. Changes options for a coach.

He looked faster than ever in the Temple game. I'm interested in eventually seeing his 40 time at the NFL combine.

Andre Hall was a very special USF RB who ended up getting drafted and playing in the NFL.

I think that Mack will eclipse Hall, both here and in the NFL, and that really says a lot about him.
