One extremely bright spot for the Orange on Saturday was WR Mike Williams' statline.
13 receptions, 186 yards and two touchdowns. 13 receptions in a game is second all-time behind some guy named Art Monk (14). Though his touchdown streak ended earlier this, Williams has caught passes in 25 consecutive games. He's also caught at least five passes in every game this season and ten consecutive games.
On the season, Williams has 41 receptions for 623 yards (3rd in NCAA) and five touchdowns. The No. 2 receiver on the team, Donte Davis, has twelve receptions for 125 yards.
In other words, he's kindof a big deal for us. Doug Marrone even pulled out the rare double-tremendous for him:
"Mike Williams had a tremendous game," SU head coach Doug Marrone said. "Mike went up there and got a ball, and that's what we're talking about when the ball goes into the air.
"South Florida had a chance to get that one ball. Mike went up and grabbed that football. Mike has done a tremendous job and we need other players to step it up to help us out."
Williams was named to the weekly honor roll by the Big East Conference for his performance and something tells me it's not the last time you'll hear his name come up for awards this year.
