N.C. State quarterback Russell Wilson is offensive back of the week for his role in the Wolfpack’s 28-24 victory over Florida State on Thursday night in Raleigh, while Duke tight end Cooper Helfet was named offensive lineman of the week and kicker Will Snyderwine specialist of the week for their performances in the Blue Devils’ 31-28 win at Navy on Saturday.

Wilson’s touchdown responsibility was four in the game, as he completed 18 of 28 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown, also carrying the ball 17 times for 69 yards and three touchdowns.

Helfet caught a season-high seven passes for 69 yards, with four of the catches resulting in first downs. He also recovered a Navy onside kick with 2:34 left in the game.

Snyderwine hit field goals from 30 and 40 yards, the latter one providing the insurance points Duke needed with 8:34 to go. He hit all of his four conversion attempts, and added three kickoffs for touchbacks and had one tackle.
