Wide receiver Tommylee Lewis was named the division’s offensive player of the week after catching a career-high nine passes for 56 yards, and running for 104 yards on four carries in Saturday’s 45-35 win at Idaho. It was also Lewis’ first-career 100-yard rushing game.
Bishop had a career-high eight tackles, a tackle for loss and a fumble recovery.
