UB junior linebacker Khalil Mack has been named the Mid-American Conference East Defensive Player of the Week for his dominating performance in Saturday's 29-19 victory at UMass. Mack set careers highs with 15 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He finished with 3.5 tackles for losses -- becoming UB's career leader in the category -- and forced a pair of fumbles. Oh, yeah, and he was in on both the third- and fourth-down stops of UB's first quarter goalline stand.
The other two East Division awards went to players from Kent State, which locked up the division title with a 31-24 victory over Bowling Green Saturday. The offensive award went to the imcomparable Dri Archer, who rolled for 241 yards on 17 carries and scored from 74 and 77 yards out.Check him out below. The second TD run defies belief. Kent punter Anthony Melchiori won the special teams award.
