For the second time this season, Ball State sophomore quarterback Keith Wenning has been named a weekly finalist for the Manning Award Player of the Week.

The Manning Award, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, has named eight quarterbacks as its "Stars of the Week".  College football fans can now go to the Allstate Sugar Bowl Facebook page to vote for what they think was the best performance from this past weekend.  When voting closes Thursday at 9 a.m. (CT), the top vote-getter will be announced as the Manning Award Player of the Week.

Wenning led the Cardinals to a 48-21 victory over Army last Saturday.  He passed for a career high 324 yards against the Black Knights and tied his career best single game performance with three touchdown passes.  It marked his second straight multiple touchdown passing game and his third of the 2011 season.  Wenning also tied his career high with 24 completions.  The 324 passing yards was the most for a Ball State player since Nate Davis threw for 351 yards against Buffalo Dec. 5, 2008, and was the 13th best single-game effort in Ball State history.


The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in 2004 to honor the college football accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. It is the only quarterback award that includes the candidates' bowl performances in its balloting.

This week's eight Manning Award Stars of the Week are:

Tajh Boyd, Clemson, B.J. Daniels, USF, Seth Doege, Texas Tech, Robert Griffin, III, Baylor, Keith Price, Washington, Corey Robinson, Troy, Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State and Keith Wenning, Ball State
