UNC’s Brian Walker among this week’s ACC Football Players of the Week

Three members of Virginia Tech’s defensive unit received Atlantic Coast Conference weekly football honors following their performances in Saturday night’s win at No. 8 Ohio State, which capped an 11-0 weekend for league teams versus nonconference opponents. Locally UNC’s Brian Walker was named the Co-Defensive Back of the Week. Walker returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter and added a second interception in the fourth quarter of Carolina’s 31-27 win over San Diego State.
