Keith Wenning, a senior quarterback on the Ball State football team, is one of eight QBs selected as The Manning Award “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 week.  When voting closes on Thursday at 11 a.m. (Central), the top vote-getter will be announced as the Manning Award Player of the Week.

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:

Keith Wenning, Ball State
(20-of-29, 299 yards, 4 TDs, 0 INT, QBR: 90.7)
Wenning helped the Cardinals to a 44-24 win over Central Michigan and Ball State will now face undefeated Northern Illinois Wednesday.  The Cardinals are 9-1 overall and 6-0 in the Mid-American Conference, while NIU is 9-0 on the season and 5-0 in MAC play.

Shane Carden, East Carolina
(34-of-50, 384 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INT, QBR: 84.4)
Carden sets the Pirate school record with seven touchdowns (he added two rushing) as East Carolina rolls to a Conference USA victory over Tulsa, 58-24.

Taylor Heinicke, Old Dominion
(40-of-56, 533 yards, 4 TDs, 1 INT, QBR: 93.8)
Heinicke records a season-high in passing yards, while leading the Monarchs, who are transitioning to the FBS this year and will be full members of Conference USA in 2014, to a 59-38 road win over Idaho, their first victory over an FBS team.

Nick Marshall, Auburn
(3-of-7, 35 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT, QBR: 99.6)
Marshall has one of the lowest passing yardage totals of any Manning Award Star of the Week, but his rushing performance (214 yards, 2 TDS) puts him among the best for the week after a key SEC road victory over Tennessee, 55-23.

Maty Mauk, Missouri
(17-of-28, 203 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INT, QBR: 95.8)
Mauk doubles his career touchdown total in one afternoon to tie a school record while leading the Tigers to a 48-17 SEC road victory over Kentucky.

Keenan Reynolds, Navy
(4-of-8, 59 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, QBR: 81.3)
Reynolds rushes for a career-high 226 yards and four touchdowns as the Midshipmen climb to 5-4 with a 42-28 victory over Hawaii.

Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech
(25-of-31, 366 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INT, QBR: 91.6)
Thomas, who also rushes for 42 yards, records his best QBR since 2011 as he turns in a near-flawless performance in a 42-24 upset of No. 11 Miami.

Bo Wallace, Ole Miss
(26-of-33, 407 yards, 3 TDs, 2 INT, QBR: 85.1
Wallace registers a career-high in passing yards as he leads the Rebels to bowl eligibility with a 34-24 victory over Arkansas in SEC action.
