For the second time this season, Duke WR Jamison Crowder has been named the ACC Specialist of the Week. His 82-yard punt return touchdown on Pitt's only first-half punt Saturday marked the second time he has taken a punt to the house this year (he opened the season with a 76-yard score against N.C. Central). Crowder is sixth in the nation, and first in the ACC, with a average return of 19.85 yards per punt.
The punt return was one of three touchdowns scored by Crowder in the 58-55 loss to the Panthers, and he became the first Duke players since Scottie Montgomery in 1999 to score via a run, reception and punt return.
Here are the rest of the awards, via the ACC release—lots of Panthers taking home offensive honors, as expected. Andrew Carter and I are among the 11 voters for the weekly recognitions.
