State's Wilson named an ACC football player of the week

NC State redshirt-junior quarterback Russell Wilson, Florida State senior offensive guard Rodney Hudson and Georgia Tech sophomore defensive end Izaan Cross headline a list of six players recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Players of the Week, announced Monday by the ACC. Wilson threw for 333 yards and three touchdowns, his sixth career 300-yard game, as the Wolfpack topped Cincinnati, 30-19.

Hudson helped the Seminoles accumulate 427 yards of total offense and tallied 10 knockdown blocks as FSU defeated BYU, 34-10. Cross recorded five tackles, forced a fumble and was part of a defensive line that held North Carolina scoreless in the fourth quarter, earning the Yellow Jackets their first conference victory of the season, 30-24.

Joining Russell as an honoree was teammate Mustafa Greene, who was named rookie of the week. Cross and Scott Blair, this week’s specialist of the week, represented Georgia Tech, while Virginia Tech’s Rashad Carmichael was tabbed defensive back of the week.
