J.J. McCarthy (Oct. 10)

Davey O’Brien Great 8 List, Midseason Watch List — Quarterback J.J. McCarthy was named to the Davey O’Brien Great 8 list for his performance in the Wolverines’ week six victory at Indiana. McCarthy set career highs in attempts (36), completions (28), and yards (304), recording his first career 300-yard game and his second three-touchdown passing effort of the season. McCarthy leads the nation in completion percentage (78.3), and he ranks fifth in pass efficiency (182.1) and eighth in yards per attempt (9.6). The Wolverines scored 21 points in the second half at IU and outgained the Hoosiers, 263-29, while McCarthy helped lead three touchdown drives in the final 23 minutes. This is McCarthy’s first career honor from the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award and automatically adds him to the midseason watch list.

Jake Moody (Sept. 28)

William V. Campbell Trophy Semifinalist — Kicker Jake Moody was named as one of 156 semifinalists for the 2022 William V. Campell Trophy. Now in its 33rd year, the award recognizes an individual as the absolute best in the country for his combined academic success, football performance, and exemplary leadership. The NFF Will announce 12-14 finalists in November, and each will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the 2021 NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class. One winner will be chosen later this year and will have his postgraduate scholarship raised to $25,000. A consensus All-American last year, Moody is the 2021 Lou Groza Award winner and the 2021 Bakken-Anderson Big Ten Kicker of the Year. He ranks 10th all-time in scoring at Michigan (249 points). Moody has been a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree (2019-21) while pursuing his degree in sport management and in 2021, he was a CoSIDA Academic All-District 5 selection. Moody is now pursuing a Real Estate Development degree from the Rackham Graduate School. » NFF Release

Blake Corum (Sept. 27)

Doak Walker National Running Back of the Week — In its first season presenting a National Running Back of the Week honor, the Doak Walker Award committee recognized running back Blake Corum with the distinction. It marks his third honor, national or conference, following his performance against Maryland which saw him achieve new career-highs in rushes (30) and yards (243). Corum reached the seventh-best single-game rushing total in program history and the fourth-best against any Big Ten opponent. Corum’s 11 runs of 15-plus yards lead all FBS backs, and he had five such runs against Maryland. It was the most yards by a U-M ball carrier since Denard Robinson in 2010 (258 vs. Notre Dame). Corum secured the honor over fellow Week 3 candidates Devon Achane (Texas A&M), Keyon Mozee (Miami (Ohio)), and Jadyn Ott (Cal). The Doak Walker Award has been awarded to the nation’s top running back since 1990. Semifinalists for the award will be named on Nov. 22, and three finalists will be named a week later.

Blake Corum (Sept. 26)

Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week, Rose Bowl Big Ten Player of the Week — Running back Blake Corum‘s historic performance last weekend was rewarded by the Big Ten conference on Monday (Sept. 26) with a share of the league’s offensive player of the week honors. Corum was also recognized by the Rose Bowl Game Football Committee as the Big Ten Player of the Week. Corum set career bests with his 30 carries and 243 rushing yards against Maryland, averaging 8.1 yards per rush attempt. He scored two touchdowns, giving him an FBS-leading nine through the first four games of the year — the most by any U-M back in the modern era through the first four games. Corum has produced eight of Michigan’s 26 explosive plays (20-plus yards) on offense, and PFFCollege credits him with 11 designed rushes of 15-plus yards, most among FBS ball carriers. This is Corum’s second career Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor, following his performance against Washington last season.
