SALT LAKE CITY – Utah State star wide receiver Deven Thompkins has been named the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Week.

The senior wideout had a tremendous performance that helped Utah State knock off New Mexico State 35-13 on Saturday in Las Cruces.

It’s the second time this season and in Deven Thompkins’ career that he received Mountain West Player of the Week honors.

Thompkins caught nine passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns in the win over NMSU. The 215 yards was a career-high and is tied for ninth-most with James Murphy for the most receiving yards in a single game in school history.

His two touchdown catches tied a career-high and all nine of his catches were at least 20 yards or more. Thompkins is the first Utah State receiver to surpass 200 yards receiving in a game since Kevin Cutis in 2001 when he had 11 receptions for 211 yards against South Florida.

Utah State wrapped up their non-conference schedule and will jump back into Mountain West play with a 7-2 overall record and 4-1 in MWC action. They will be on the road on Saturday, November 13 to face San Jose State at 8:30 p.m. MT on FS1 and The Zone Sports Network.
