USF earns football honors

The University of South Florida football team picked up a trio of honors following its 28-27 victory over Rutgers last week.

Senior Jacquian Williams was named the Big East Defensive Player of The Week and Maikon Bonani earned Special Teams Player of The Week Honors for the second time in his career, while senior running back Moise Plancher was listed on the honor roll.

Williams had a game and career highs of 11 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks to help USF. He assisted on a third-quarter sack that backed the Scarlet Knights to their own 7-yard line in a drive that ended in a safety. He later registered a sack on fourth down in USF territory ending a Rutgers threat to score the go-ahead points in the final four minutes.

Bonani was named conference player of the week for the second time in his career after he scored nine points and was perfect on two field goal and three extra point attempts. Bonani made field goals of 47 and 21 yards, improving to 8-for-9 on field goal attempts on the season.

Plancher set career highs in carries (21), rushing yards (135), receiving yards (45) and all-purpose yards (180).

USF will look for its third-straight victory when it travels to Louisville this Saturday in a game which will be televised on ESPNU. Kickoff is set for noon.
