ASU's Aplin Honored for Performance Against North Texas

JONESBORO, Ark. (10/31/2011) - Following his performance in ASU's 37-14 victory over North Texas Saturday night, Arkansas State junior quarterback Ryan Aplin has been named as the Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week by Rivals.com and College Sports Madness.

Both Rivals.com and CollegeSportsMadness.com name the players who make the highest impact player nationally and one from each conference in their weekly features.

Aplin topped the 300-yard passing mark for the second time this season in leading ASU to the win over the Mean Green to improve to 6-2 overall and a league-best 4-0 in SBC action. Aplin was on target from the start, completing his first seven passes to finish with 332 yards on 28 of 42 attempts, throwing to nine receivers for a career-high 3 touchdowns.

Aplin added 69 rushing yards to finish the game with 391 yards of total offense and help the Red Wolves pile up 540 yards against the Mean Green.

Ranked first in the Sun Belt Conference and 11th nationally at 315 yards of total offense per game, Aplin became the third ASU player to top 7,000 yards of total offense, the third to complete 500 passes in his career and moved into third place on the ASU all-time touchdown chart with 34 career touchdown passes.

Aplin and the league-leading Red Wolves will be back in action Saturday when ASU travels to Boca Raton, Fla. to take on the Owls of Florida Atlantic in a 3:00 p.m. Sun Belt Conference matchup.
