Tyrique Jarrett recorded five tackles, three for loss, in Pitt's 24-7 victory at Akron Saturday. Monday, the ACC honored him for his performance.
The junior nose tackle was named the league's Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week.
Jarrett shared the honor with Clemson end Shaq Lawson who posted four tackles and a sack in the Tigers' win over Appalachian State. '
The 6-foot-3, 335-pound lineman anchored a Pitt defense that allowed only 111 yards to Akron and limited the running game to 47 yards on 24 rushing attempts.
Jarrett's accolade follows that of Nicholas Grigsby, who was the ACC's Week 1 Linebacker of the Week for his play in Pitt's 45-37 victory against Youngstown State.
