Troy players head Sun Belt weekly awards

Offensive Player of the Week

Levi Brown (Troy, Sr., QB)
Posted his second straight standout performance in leading the Trojans to a fourth quarter come-from-behind victory over Arkansas State in the league opener. Brown completed 33-of-46 passes (71.7%) for 355 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning eight-yard scoring pass in the final period. Over the last two games, Brown has thrown for 768 yards to set a school record for yards passing in consecutive games. He has completed 73.1 percent of his throws with a 170.14 passer rating and four touchdowns over the last two games.

Defensive Player of the Week

Kevin Brown (Middle Tennessee, Jr., S)
Brown picked off a pair of Riley Dodge passes for his fourth and fifth career interceptions in the 37-21 victory over North Texas. He returned his first interception 36 yards down to the Mean Green six, setting up a second quarter Middle Tennessee touchdown. His other interception return went for seven yards. In addition, Brown finished with six tackles, tying for third on the team, and one pass breakup.

Co-Special Teams Players of the Week

Scott Love (ULM, Sr., P)
The unsung hero of ULM's 27-25 victory at Florida Atlantic is without a doubt senior punter Scott Love. After not being called to duty at all in the first half, Love boomed five punts for a 44.8 yard average in the second half with three landing inside the 20-yard line and two landing inside the 7-yard line. His most important kick of the night came with the Warhawks leading by the final margin with just over two minutes later. He calmly booted a 35-yard punt that angled out-of-bounds at the FAU 6-yard line forcing to Owls to go 94 yards without any timeouts. He had punts of 48 and 56 yards in the game.

Kanorris Davis (Troy, Fr., LB)
Was credited with two special teams tackles in the Trojans' win over Arkansas State, but it was the second that was the game-changing play. With the Trojans trailing 27-23 and punting from their own 32, Davis forced the ball out of the hands of ASU return man Taylor Clements at the Red Wolves' 25 where Bryant McKissic recovered for Troy. Five plays later the Trojans scored the winning touchdown. For the day Davis forced two fumbles.
