DENVER - Hawai'i quarterback Bryant Moniz, Nevada defensive lineman Dontay Moch and Fresno State placekicker Kevin Goessling were named the Verizon Western Athletic Conference offensive, defensive and special teams players of the week, respectively.
 
Moniz, a junior from Wahiawa, O'ahu (Fresno City College), accounted for six touchdowns in the Warriors' 59-21 win over UNLV.  Moniz was 29-of-43 for 380 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing five times for 29 yards and two more scores.  He threw touchdown passes of 33, 22, 3 and 54 yards with the last one giving Hawai'i a 52-7 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Moch, a senior from Chandler, Ariz. (Hamilton HS), made seven tackles (6 solo), including two for a loss in Nevada's 35-17 win at Louisiana Tech.  After going into the lockerroom tied at 14, Moch helped lead a defense that held the Bulldogs to less than 100 yards of total offense in the second half to give the Wolf Pack a share of the WAC title.

Goessling, a junior from Placentia, Calif. (Servite HS), made both of his field goal attempts in Fresno State's 25-23 win over Illinois on Friday night.  His 52-yard field goal in the second quarter was the longest by any WAC player this season.  He also hit a 45-yarder late in the first quarter of the game.  Goessling is now 5-for-7 from 50 yards or longer during his career.
