Fenroy And Keyes Named Sun Belt POW

Louisiana's Ragin'Cajun running back Tyrell Fenroy and safety Derik Keyes were named Sun Belt Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week.

Tyrell Fenroy (Louisiana, Sr., RB)

Cajuns running back Tyrell Fenroy blasted Kansas State with 183 yards on only 20 carries and scored three touchdowns in the Cajuns near upset victory. He also added a 12-yard reception to total 195 yards. Fenroy's first TD, a 15-yard run, capped a 10-play, 90-yard drive that saw the Cajuns score with 43 seconds remaining in the first half. His other two touchdowns were scored on back-to-back offensive possessions that took a 42-23 KSU lead and chopped it down to 42-37 with 8:49 remaining. Fenroy has put up some big numbers over his last two games with 43 rushes for 377 yards and six touchdowns as well as three receptions for 80 yards. His 3,724 career rushing yards make him the NCAA's leader among active running backs. He is the first player is school history to top 4,000 career combined rushing & receiving yards, as he currently has 4,182 yards. Fenroy is now just 327 rushing yards away from passing North Texas' Patrick Cobbs and becoming the new all-time leader in rushing in Sun Belt Conference history. With seven rushing touchdowns already this season, Fenroy has tied Cobbs for second on the career list. Fenroy is five behind SBC career leader Eugene Gross (Middle Tennessee).

Derik Keyes (Louisiana, Sr., DB)

Cajuns senior safety Derik Keyes had a career-high 18 tackles at Kansas State, including 11 solo tackles. It marked the most tackles by any Cajuns defender since Kyries Hebert had 20 tackles at Minnesota on Sept. 8, 2001. Keyes also made a tackle-for-loss late in the fourth quarter on a KSU first-and-goal play. The tackle for loss helped the Cajuns defense hold the Wildcats out of the end zone, forcing a field goal, which gave the ball back to the offense with 1:37 to play in a one possession game.
