Pitt had a ton of standouts in the 56-14 thrashing of Duke on Saturday. Two of them were honored by the ACC this week for their play in the game.
Defensive end Ejuan Price, our Panther of the Game, was named ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week. He had two sacks, three tackles for losses, and two quarterback hurries for the defense that held the Blue Devils to only seven offensive points.
Specialist Quadree Henderson also electrified yet again, returning a punt for a touchdown to earn the ACC's Specialist of the Week award. In addition to his special teams work, he added 73 rushing yards, including a 52-yard touchdown run, and two catches.
Other Panthers not honored also had big games as well. James Conner set the all-time ACC touchdown mark and had 101 rushing yards with two touchdowns. Jester Weah caught two passes for 95 yards and a touchdown, and quarterback Nathan Peterman also threw three touchdown passes.
