McKnight, Mays Win Weekly Honors For Ohio State Performances
Sept. 14, 2009
Tailback Joe McKnight was named the Pac-10 Offensive Player of the Week and safety Taylor Mays was selected as the U.S. Army All-American Bowl College Player of the Week for their performances in USC's last-minute 18-15 win at Ohio State last Saturday.
McKnight has 105 all-purpose yards (a game-high 60 on 16 carries and 45 on 2 receptions) in Columbus. He came up huge on USC's late 86-yard game-winning drive (32 rushing yards, 21 receiving yards and a 2-point conversion catch).
Mays led USC with 8 tackles despite spraining his knee in the first half.
