The CAA released it's weekly award winners on Monday, and in what is becoming a Monday-morning ritual, Villanova quarterback John Robertson was named the Offensive Player of the Week. Robertson played just one half of Saturday's 44-21 victory over Rhode Island, but still managed to finish 13-16 for 189 yards and 4 touchdowns. He added 61 yards rushing.

The performance marked the 4th straight week that Robertson has thrown for 4 touchdowns. The full list of honorees is below.
