On the heels of the BYU Cougars’ huge win over the Baylor Bears last weekend, head coach Kalani Sitake and wide receiver Chase Roberts were recognized by ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit on Monday as two of the top performers in all of college football from last weekend.
Each week, Herbstreit identifies his top teams, coaches and players from the previous weekend’s games (there is not a set number he includes), and Sitake and Roberts cracked this week’s lists.
Sitake was third among seven on the coaches list, while Roberts was fifth among seven on the players list.
