MURFREESBORO – Middle Tennessee quarterback Brent Stockstill and safety Jovante Moffatt have both been named Conference USA Players of the Week as announced by the league office on Monday. Stockstill was the offensive player award winner and Moffatt brought home the defensive honor.
Stockstill had a memorable game in the only start of his career against Marshall in Huntington on Friday. Stockstill was 25-of-40 for 317 yards and two touchdown passes, while also rushing for an additional 31 yards and a score.
Stockstill was at his best in the pivotal third quarter when he completed 11-of-15 attempts for 101 yards and a score to rally the Blue Raiders to their first-ever win in Huntington. Stockstill also topped the 10,000-yard mark in the win, becoming just one of 11 C-USA QBs to achieve the feat and one of 24 in NCAA history.
His 25 completions also enabled him to move into ninth on the C-USA career completions list. His 16th 300-yard passing game moved him into a tie for seventh on the all-time C-USA list in that category.
Moffatt turned in a career performance with his 17-tackle effort against The Herd. Moffatt’s previous high was 15 against FAU (2017). The senior, playing in just his second game of the season, also forced a fumble that led to first-half points for the Blue Raiders. His 17 stops were just three off Middle Tennessee’s single-game Top 10 list.
It marks the fourth player of the week honor for Stockstill during his career and the first for Moffatt. Overall, this was the 73rd and 74th conference player of the week winners under Head Coach Rick Stockstill with 25 coming from C-USA and 49 from the Sun Belt. A total of 25 have been on offense, 28 on defense and 21 on special teams.
