Air Force sophomore tailback Asher Clark is the Mountain West Conference Co-Offensive Player of the Week.
Clark carried the ball 18 times and rushed for career-highs of 160 yards and three touchdowns in Air Force's 45-17 win over UNLV. He averaged 8.9 yards per carry and scored on touchdown runs of 24, two and a season-long 40 yards. Eight of Clark's rushing attempts went for first downs in the game. The Lawrenceville, Ga., native's 160 rushing yards are the most by a player in the MWC this season and the most for a Falcon since Chad Hall ran for 275 yards vs. Army on Nov. 3, 2007.
