Walker moved to the Czech Republic at age 13 to pursue his hockey career, then moved five years later to North America.

Walker’s goal was originally credited to teammate Devante Smith-Pelly, but when the change was announced to the crowd during the third period, Walker’s family waved Australian flags in his honor.

At first, I wasn’t 100 percent sure,” Walker said of his goal, adding he felt in somewhat of a daze during his first game. The first couple of shifts I didn’t know what happened.”

Before finishing the call, Walker told Turnbull how he had met the Australian ambassador to the United States the week before.

It took more than one game for Davis to make the list, but that one game, woo boy. It’s hard to imagine any defender doing more than Davis did Sept. 29 against BYU. He had three interceptions, returning two for touchdowns from 50 and 30 yards out. Davis, the first FBS player with three interceptions and two scoring returns in a game since 2012, also became Utah State’s career leader for pass breakups.
