For the second time this season, junior wide receiver Eric Page has been named to the Paul Hornung Award Weekly Honor Roll.

The weekly recognition honors versatile, single-game performances around the nation by Football Bowl Subdivision student-athletes.

While controversy surrounded the Rockets’ 33-30 overtime loss to Syracuse, there was no questioning Page’s performance. He caught 13 receptions for 158 yards, returned one punt for seven yards, and ran back five kicks for 114 yards. He finished with 279 all-purpose yards.

Page passed Steve Odom (216 catches for 2,631 yards, 2003-2006) to move into second place in school history with 219 career receptions for 2,696 yards.

In addition, Page was named the Mid-American Conference West Division Co-Offensive Player of the Week.
