Williams honored by Big East

UConn's Nick Williams was named the Big East's Special Teams Player of the Week.

Williams returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown, returned two kickoffs for 42 yards and became the Huskies' career leader in combined kickoff/punt return yardage in Friday's win over Pittsburgh.

Williams also shared the College Football Performance Awards' national punt returner of the week award with UAB's Jackie Williams who returned a punt 79 yards for a score in a 38-31 win over Marshall.

Senior linebacker Sio Moore was named to the Big East honor roll after recording two sacks and two pass breakups in Friday's win over Pittsburgh. Moore and tight end Ryan Griffin (six catches for 84 yards and one TD) were honorable mention picks at their respective positions by the CFPA site.

It was also announced that the Nov. 24 game at Louisville will start at noon and air on SNY.
