The American Athletic Conference has announced its player of the week honors and Teddy Bridgewater was named as the league’s offensive player of the week. And for good reason. Against Ohio Bridgewater finished with 355 yards passing and five touchdowns, his seventh career 300-yard passing game. For his career Bridgewater has thrown for 6,202 yards and 45 touchdowns. His 6,202 yards through the air moved him into fifth place on the school’s all-time career list, passing Stefan LeFors, and his 45 touchdown tosses are fourth best in school history, ahead of Jay Gruden.
