Pac Man Gobbles Up Award

West Virginia's Pac Man Jones was stellar in WVU's narrow loss to Miami on Thursday, and his performance earned him the Big East Conference Defensive player of the week award.

Jones, a native of College Park, Ga. was all over the field in West Virginia's 22-20 loss at No. 2 Miami. The sophomore defensive back tallied 12 tackles, including nine solo stops, in his second career start and first of the season.

He recorded an interception on the WVU four-yard line at the end of the first half that stopped a Hurricane scoring threat. Jones also forced and recovered a fumble late in the fourth quarter that led to the Mountaineers' go-ahead touchdown. He had two and a half tackles for loss and a pass break-up as West Virginia held Miami to 88 rushing yards and its lowest point total during the 'Canes 25-game Orange Bowl winning streak.
