Week 10 Detmer Award: The Voting Goes Broadway

In America’s big election this week, one man overcame odds to take top honors: I refer of course to La.-Lafayette quarterback Terrance Broadway.

He led the Ragin’ Cajuns to an upset over La.-Monroe, and carried the most votes in the Week 10 Detmer Award balloting. Meanwhile, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch extended his overall lead. The dual threat play maker decimated over-matched UMass with another 100-plus showing both passing and rushing the ball. However, he still travels ULM quarterback Kolton Browning in the amount of first place votes.

Is that like losing the popular vote but gaining the Electoral College?

3. Jordan Lynch QB, NIU- This guy is crazy good

4. Derek Carr QB, Fresno State- 4 TD tosses

Kyle Kensing

1. Terrance Broadway, La.-Lafayette

ULL was almost DOA for returning to the postseason heading into its in-state rivalry game against UL-Monroe, but Terrance Broadway’s five total touchdowns kept the Ragin’ Cajuns alive.

2. Deon Anthony, Troy

The two-way offensive threat was integral in Troy’s slicing up of the Tennessee defense. He passed for two touchdowns and rushed for another.

3. Derek Carr, Fresno State

Derek Carr averaged over 20 yards per pass and threw four touchdowns — that was only in the first half. Had he played in the second, Carr probably could have scored 10 touchdowns.

4. Branden Oliver, Buffalo

Buffalo caught Miami off-guard after the RedHawks’ defeat of Ohio, and Branden Oliver’s 199 yards were critical to the Bull win.

5. Jordan Lynch, Northern Illinois

Another stellar dual threat performance against a hapless opponent.
