Honors for UConn's Adams, Williams

UConn defensive backs Andrew Adams and Jhavon Williams received honorable mention recognition from the College Football Performance Awards.

Adams, a junior safety, returned a fumble 32 yards for a score, forced another fumble and had three tackles while Williams, a sophomore cornerback, had two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and five tackles in a 27-20 loss to SMU.

It was the second time Adams made the list as he was named the Defensive Back Performer of the Week after he had three interceptions in a 37-29 win over Central Florida.

Adams led UConn with 65 solo tackles (the most for a UConn defensive back since Terrance Smith's 70 during the 2003 season), four interceptions (the most since Jerome Junior and Blidi Wreh-Wilson each had four in the 2010 season) and eight pass breakups. When the All-American Athletic Conference is announced on Wednesday I'm not sure how many UConn players are going to be on the list but I would expect Adams to be UConn's best candidate to be named to the first team.
