Smallwood, Williams honored by Big East

UConn nearly swept the Big East weekly awards as sophomore linebacker Yawin Smallwood was named the Big East Defensive Player of the Week (for the second time in three weeks) and the Special Teams Player of the Week award goes to UConn senior Nick Williams.

Smallwood had 14 tackles including 3.5 behind the line of scrimmage along with 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble while Williams returned a punt 58 yards for a touchdown and finished with 112 yards in return yardage in a 24-21 win over Maryland.

Pittsburgh senior quarterback Tin Sunseri (19 of 28 for 283 yards in upset of Virginia Tech) was named the Big East's offensive player of the week.
