Williams named National Defensive Lineman of the Week

Though Saturday wasn't the proudest day for FIU's defense, senior defensive end Tourek Williams had a fumble-causing sack, a career-high nine tackles and a career-high-tying four tackles for loss. The latter was the second most in a game by an FIU player, even with Williams against Louisiana-Monroe in 2010; Audric Adger against North Texas in 2007; and Antwan Barnes against Bethune in 2003 and Middle Tennessee State in 2006. (the record: 5.5 by Keyonis Bouie against North Texas in 2006).

That got Williams the National Defensive Lineman of the Week honor from the College Football Performance Awards.
