Rice quarterback Taylor McHargue has been named the C-USA Offensive Player of the Week for his career day against Marshall at Rice Stadium last Saturday. C-USA Football Players of the Week are voted on by a panel of the league's media.
McHargue became the second player in Rice history to top 450 yards of total offense in a game, finishing with 467 yards in the Owls 54-51 loss to Marshall. After being held to just eight yards through the air in the opening quarter, he threw for a career-high 316 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for a career-best 153 and one score.
He piled up 129 yards in the game's final four minutes, leading the Owls back from a 10-point deficit to send the game into overtime. With the Owls down 41-31, McHargue scored on a 43-yard run to close the gap to three with 3:17 left on the clock. After the Owls forced a Herd punt with 2:29 left, McHargue drove Rice 77 yards--the last 47 on a scramble put the ball at the Marshall two--but was injured on the play and watched from the sideline as Marshall forced a field goal to send the game into overtime.
McHargue is the Owls' first C-USA Offensive Player of the Week in 2012 and the first to grab the honor since Nick Fanuzzi was honored last November for his efforts in a win over UTEP. Cameron Nwosu and Chris Boswell have each won the league's special team award this season.
