T O P P E R F O R M E R : W E E K 3
CHUBA HUBBARD, OKLAHOMA STATE
We pace ourselves here at Player of the Week HQ.
Do we want to reward Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa
already in Week 3? Surely, he’ll be back in a game
of greater consequence later, but, wait! His 444
(triple fours!) yards and five touchdowns were
against an SEC foe, South Carolina? On the road
in Columbia? Mighty impressive, Tua. Kudos.
However, there was one number that jumped out
a bit more this week and that is 256, the number
of yards Canadian-born Chuba Hubbard rang up
against in-state rival Tulsa. Hubbard also found
the end zone three times, including a 75-yard
run on the first play from scrimmage. He had
over 100 yards on the ground before the game
was five minutes old. It was his second game
of the season over the 220-yard mark and third
over the century mark. A name to watch while
trying not to remark “Hubba Hubba”!
