PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The BIG EAST Conference has named Connecticut running back Jordan Todman, West Virginia cornerback Brandon Hogan and USF punter Justin Brockhaus-Kann have been named the winners of this week's weekly football honors forthe week-ending Nov. 27.
Todman was named BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week after he rushed for 175 yards and three touchdowns on 31 carries to lead Connecticut to a 38-17 win against Cincinnati and lift the Huskies into a three-way tie for first place in the BIG EAST standings. Todman scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to break open what had been a one-possession game and put Connecticut in the driver’s seat in the BIG EAST race.
Hogan was tabbed as BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week after he had a hand in two first-half turnovers to lead West Virginia to a 35-10 win at Pittsburgh, forging a three-way tie atop the BIG EAST standings. Hogan had a 53-yard interception return to the 2-yard line on the first series to set up the Mountaineers’ first touchdown of the day and he added a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in the second quarter. Hogan finished with six tackles as part of a West Virginia defense that has not allowed more than 21 points in a game this season.
Brockhaus-Kann, who was named BIG EAST Special Teams Player of the Week, helped tilt the field in USF’s favor in the Bulls’ 23-20 overtime win at Miami (Fla.). He averaged 41.0 yards on 10 punts, hitting two punts of 50 yards or more and dropping two inside the 20-yard line. He helped limit Miami’s punt return unit to just 28 total yards on seven returns.
