National honor for UConn's Andrew Adams

UConn junior safety Andrew Adams was named the College Football Performance Awards national Defensive Back Performer of the Week after intercepting three passes and making eight tackles in the Huskies' upset of Central Florida.

Adams, the first Husky with three interceptions in a game since 2005, is the first UConn player to receive a CPFA national honor since Deshon Foxx was one of the five players named the Punt Returner Performer of the Week after the Stony Brook game.

Zach Patt, who had five sacks and three forced fumbles in Rice's 31-17 win over Florida International, was named the CFPA's National Defensive Performer of the Week.

Temple defensive end Praise Martin-Oguike (three forced fumbles, blocked field goal, 3.5 tackles for loss) beat out Adams and teammate Tyler Matakevich from Stratford (school-record 16 solo tackles) for the American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors. Adams and Deshon Foxx (102 rushing yards, three receptions) were named to the honor roll.
