Fresno State receiver Davante Adams was named the Mountain West Conference Offensive player of the week Monday.
Adams caught eight passes for a career-high 221 yards and four touchdowns, which set a school record, during Fresno State’s 38-14 win against UNLV on Saturday.
Adams’ four touchdown receptions also matched the conference’s single-game record, and his 221 yards was the most by a Mountain West player since San Diego State’s DeMarco Sampson recorded 257 yards in 2009.
Adams began the night with a 75-yard touchdown catch from quarterback Derek Carr on the first offensive play of the game -- scoring just 9 seconds into the game and recorded the Bulldogs’ longest player from scrimmage this year.
Nationally for the season, Adams ranks second in the nation in touchdown catches (11), third in receptions per game (10.0), seventh in receiving yards per game (119.5 yards average) and receiving yards (717).
This is Adams' second weekly conference award in his career.
Boise State junior defensive end Demarcus Lawrence and Utah State sophomore punt returner/wide receiver Bruce Natson earned MW defensive and special teams honors.
