BOZEMAN — In light of his career performance against fifth-ranked Weber State, Montana State's Tommy Mellott was tabbed the Big Sky Offensive Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

In the Bobcats' 43-38 win over Weber State, Mellott rushed for a career-high 273 yards, which put him second on Montana State's all-time single-game list surpassing Ryan Johnson's 271 yards against Idaho State (2011).

Don Hass' 298 yards against Weber State in 1967 leads the list.

Mellott rushed the ball 32 times, which also marks the most carries by a Big Sky quarterback and second-most by any ball carrier in Bobcat history.

The Butte native also threw for 140 yards and a touchdown completing 15 of 23 passes with
one interception.

This is Mellott's first Big Sky weeky honor.
