Smith, Ruff Named To Award Lists

The MAACO Bowl Las Vegas announced its four candidates for the Mountain West Player of the Week Award on Monday, and Wyoming quarterback Brett Smith is among the nominees.

Voting will remain open until 1 p.m., Mountain Time on Wednesday.

This week's four candidates for the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas Mountain West Player of the Week are Brett Smith, Wyoming QB; Kasey Carrier, New Mexico RB; Stefphon Jefferson, Nevada RB and Bradley Randle, UNLV RB.

Earlier this season, Smith was honored as the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas Mountain West Player of the Week for his outstanding performance against Toledo, and in Week 1 of the 2012 season Wyoming junior wide receiver Robert Herron earned the honor for his stellar game at Texas.

Ruff Named To Campbell Trophy

The semifinalists for the 2012 National Football Foundation's National Scholar-Athlete Awards, presented by Fidelity Investments, and the William V. Campbell Trophy, endowed by HealthSouth, were announced on Thursday.

University of Wyoming senior free safety Luke Ruff was one of the 147 student-athletes in the nation at all levels of college football to be named to the list.

Ruff was one of only 50 NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) student-athletes and the only student-athlete from a Mountain West Conference school honored this year.

The Campbell Trophy, which has also been referred to as the "Academic Heisman", is presented annually to the top football scholar-athlete in the nation.
