Week 4 Result: 69-24 W at Hawai’i
Week 4 Stats: 31 carries, 170 yards, 5.5 yards per carry, 6 touchdowns; 3 receptions, 76 yards, 25.3 yards per reception, 1 touchdown; 246 yards from scrimmage, 7 touchdowns
Stefphon Jefferson could be the best offensive player from a non-BCS conference team this season.
Jefferson leads all FBS players through Week 4 in carries (122), rushing yards (699), rushing touchdowns (11), plays from scrimmage (131), yards from scrimmage (788), touchdowns from scrimmage (12), touchdowns (12) and points (72).
I made Jefferson the stud at running back in Week 4 because of his seven touchdowns, six of which came on the ground.
Hawai’i has indeed struggled this season, but Jefferson is for real. Nevada already defeated California on the road in Week 1, and it lost to South Florida at home by one point in Week 2.
If you have not heard of Jefferson until now, you will be hearing about him a lot more as the season progresses.
