DALLAS (FWAA) – Florida Citrus Sports and Pop-Tarts are teaming up to present the Pop-Tarts ‘Crazy Good’ Play of the Week during the 2023-24 college football season. Each week the winning play will be selected in conjunction with the Football Writers Assocation of America.
This new weekly award will celebrate the incredible athleticism, awe-inspiring strategy and jaw-dropping “did you see that?” moments from college football each week.
A select committee of FWAA members will honor one outstanding play each weekend during the regular season. Fans can nominate and vote on their favorite play through Pop-Tarts Bowl social media accounts (@PopTartsBowl).
Rice is the winner of the Pop-Tarts Crazy Good Play of the Week for Week 2. The winning play is Luke McCaffrey's one-handed 32-yard touchdown reception that helped set the tone for the Owls' first win over city rival Houston since 2010 and returns the Bayou Bucket to the Rice campus. The Owls scored 21 first-quarter points en route to a 28-0 lead and a thrilling 43-41 double overtime victory. On the afternoon, McCaffrey finished with seven receptions for 99 yards and two touchdowns.
For the rest of the season, the FWAA will announce the Pop-Tarts Crazy Good Play of the Week after the conclusion of all games each week. There will be 13 teams honored this year, running from the beginning to the end of the regular season. The winning team will receive a care package of Pop-Tarts pastries to celebrate its win. All NCAA Division I schools are eligible to be selected.
The Pop-Tarts Crazy Good Play of the Week follows Pop-Tarts entry into college football with the Pop-Tarts Bowl, organized and managed by Florida Citrus Sports.
