Fans can cast their vote for the Miracle Auto Group Player of the Week award for Week 6 games.
The poll will be open until 6 p.m. Central time on Tuesday, Sept. 27. Votes can be cast once every 30 minutes (per IP address, so if multiple devices are on the same Wi-Fi network, only one can vote every 30 minutes).
Make sure to watch the Midstate :48 beginning each Wednesday on our YouTube channel to see who we select as the winner. Our team submits their votes, and the fans’ poll winner gets one vote on the show as well. If there’s a tie, the fans’ voting serves as the tiebreaker and the higher-finishing player wins. Previous winners in the regular season are not eligible again until the playoffs.
