MOUNT PLEASANT - Central Michigan University junior running back Ontario Sneed of Clinton (Ill.) High School has been named Mid-American Conference West Division Offensive Player of the Week.

Ontario Sneed ran 29 times for 168 yards and a career-high three touchdowns, including two in a 21-point fourth quarter, in Central Michigan's 52-31 win over Toledo on Saturday.

Sneed matched a career high in rushing attempts, while his yardage total was the second-highest of his career. He has rushed for at least 100 yards eight times in his career. Sneed also caught three passes for 44 yards against the Rockets, giving him a game-high 212 all-purpose yards.

Sneed scored on a 15-yard run late in the second quarter that extended the Chippewas lead to 24-14. His 5-yard scoring run early in the fourth quarter broke a 31-31 tie and put CMU in front for good. Sneed capped the scoring with a 15-yard run with 5:27 remaining, finishing a four-play, 43-yard drive in which he carried the ball on each play.

This is the third time in his career Sneed has been named MAC West Division Offensive Player of the Week.

CMU (1-1 overall, 1-0 MAC) is on the road this weekend, visiting Purdue at noon. ESPN2 will televise the contest, with CMU Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Bentley slated to be part of the broadcast team.
