The Maxwell Award Player of the Week will be recognized for overall performance on offense, defense, or special teams. The Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week, meanwhile, will be honored for outstanding defensive play.

This week’s Maxwell Award went to Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith, who wowed college football fans with his 8 catch, 231, three-touchdown performance which included a number if remarkable, acrobatic grabs.

Defensively, Colorado linebacker Nate Landman picked up the honor.

There is no stopping No. 6… certainly not at this level. Smith once again showed why he’s the nation’s premier pass-catcher, vexing a talented LSU secondary with a dizzying array of precise routes, explosive plays and acrobatic grabs. Alabama convincingly avenged last year’s loss to the Tigers, 55-17, with Smith parlaying eight receptions into 231 yards and three touchdowns. His big performance against the Tigers has earned him the nod as Maxwell Award Player of the Week.


Bednarik Award Player of the Week: Nate Landman – LB – Colorado

With two weekends left in the regular season, Colorado undefeated, and the play of the linebackers is a huge reason why. Coordinator Tyson Summers is getting maximum production from the second level, specifically Landman and Carson Wells. In Saturday’s win over Arizona, the former had 16 tackles, including 12 solos, 3.5 stops for loss and a sack. Through four games, Landman already has 53 tackles. His outstanding defensive effort earned him recognition as the Chuck Bednarik Award Player of the Week.
