Andy Dalton (TCU), Austyn Carta-Samuels (Wyoming), Reggie Rembert (Air Force) and Ian Watts (Wyoming) are Mountain West Conference Players of the Week for games through Sept. 26. Dalton and Carta-Samuels share the Offensive Player of the Week honor, while Rembert garners the Defensive Player award and Watts receives Special Teams recognition. This marks the first-ever player of the week honor for all four individuals.
Rembert, a junior cornerback from Flower Mound, Texas, recorded a team-high seven tackles (five solo stops), a career-best two interceptions, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble in Air Force's 26-14 win over San Diego State. Midway through the first quarter, the junior defensive back from Flower Mound, Texas, recovered a fumble and returned it 47 yards for his first career touchdown to put the Falcons up 7-0. Rembert had a hand in four of the Falcons' six forced turnovers in the game, leading to 13 of Air Force's 26 points.
