OFFENSE:
Oklahoma State tailback Barry Sanders, a senior, broke his school single-game rushing record, set three weeks ago, by gaining 320 yards—second-most in Big Eight history—and scored three TDs as the Cowboys beat Kansas State 45-27.

DEFENSE:
Linebacker Rob McGovern of Holy Cross, a senior, had 14 tackles—10 of them solo—a sack and a pair of interceptions, the first of which set up the game's only score, in a 7-0 Colonial League victory over Colgate.

SPECIAL TEAMS:
Auburn's Brian Shulman, a senior, punted nine times for an average of 41.4 yards. He placed five of those kicks inside the Florida 15, and three inside the Gators' 10, as the Tigers ran off their third straight shutout, by a 16-0 score.
