Harris earns pair of national player of the week honors

SAN ANTONIO — One day after he was named American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week, UTSA senior Frank Harris has been chosen as Davey O’Brien Award Co-National QB of the Week and Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Player of the Week following his record-setting performance in the 49-21 victory over South Florida last Friday night at the Alamodome.

Harris shared his first career Davey O’Brien Award weekly award with Oregon quarterback Bo Nix. This marked the Schertz Clemens High School product’s third career Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, as he picked up the weekly accolade once apiece in each of the past two seasons.

Harris turned in a career performance in his final regular season home game to help UTSA break the school record for total offensive yards with 643 against the Bulls. He piled up 523 yards of total offense to break his program record of 445 set last season and register the second-best yardage total by an FBS player this season.

Harris completed 31 of 46 passes for 411 yards — just three yards shy of his own UTSA record — and three touchdowns and he rushed for 112 yards and three scores on only 10 attempts to notch the 13th 300-yard passing and fifth 100-yard rushing games of his career. Harris, who was named to the league’s honor roll on Oct. 30 after he passed for 395 yards and four touchdowns against East Carolina, now is one of only 15 FBS signal-callers in history to pass for more than 400 yards and rush for 100-plus in the same game.

The Roadrunners, 8-3 overall, will travel to New Orleans to face No. 18 Tulane (10-1, 7-0) on Friday, Nov. 24. Kickoff in the key conference matchup is set for 2:30 p.m. at Yulman Stadium and the game will be televised nationally on ABC.
