Wofford fullback Andre Stoddard and punter/kicker Luke Carter were named the Offensive Player of the Week and Special Teams Player of the Week, respectively, while Mercer linebacker Lee Bennett was tabbed the Defensive Player of the Week. The players of the week are selected by the league office.

Wofford fullback Andre Stoddard ran for a career-high 157 yards and two touchdowns to lead the fifth-ranked Terriers to a 35-28 win over No. 22 Western Carolina in overtime. The junior from Greenville, South Carolina, averaged nearly 7.5 yards per attempt, carrying 21 times with a long of 31 yards, in his first career 100-yard rushing game. Both of Stoddard’s scoring runs came from 3 yards out, with his first tying the game at 21 after a successful two-point try with 3:52 left in the third quarter and his second coming on the second play of overtime to give Wofford a lead it would not lose. The award is the first of his career.
