King recorded seven tackles and broke up a pass to help West Virginia's pass defense bounce back against a talented Cincinnati offense.
As usual, King's sure tackling was the highlight of his play, as he made crisp, smart hits and finished well by wrapping up opposing pass catchers.
Offensively, the pick goes to Avon Cobourne, who bounced back from a couple of so-so performances to record 193 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries. Cobourne averaged 6.4 yards per carry, and added a fifteen yard reception to his offensive total.
While Cobourne's selection seemed obvious, fellow backfield mate Quincy Wilson also made a strong push for honors. Wilson ran hard and racked up 88 yards on just nine carries. If we gave a supporting award, Quicny woiuld have it hands down.
