Senior Brelan Chancellor was named the Conference USA Special Teams Player of the Week today after his big afternoon on Saturday against Georgia.
Chancellor returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown to keep North Texas in the game vs. No. 9 Georgia. Trailing 21-7, Chancellor returned the third-longest kickoff in school history to cut the Bulldogs lead to 21-14.
It was the first time since 2011 that a player has returned a kickoff for a touchdown against Georgia and the first time for a Mean Green player since Chancellor took one back 93 yards in 2010.
Chancellor is the only player in the nation to rank in the top-10 in the nation in both punt returns and kickoff returns this season.
North Texas and Tulsa are the only C-USA schools to have a player be named offensive, defensive, and special teams player of the week this season.
