Syracuse’s Sean Tucker named ACC Running Back of the Week for second straight week

Syracuse running back Sean Tucker was named ACC Running Back of the Week for the second week in a row.

The nation’s second-leading rusher with 948 yards on 155 carries (6.1 avg.) and is also leading the team with 224 yards through the air. On Friday night against Clemson, he became the first player to rush for more than 100 yards against the Tigers, going for 157 yards.

It was his fifth-straight 100-yard game, which ties Curtis Brinkley (2008) for the program record.

He also entered the top-20 in single season rushing yards (948) through just seven games and is on pace to shatter Joe Morris’ single-season record of 1,372.

A member of both the Maxwell Award and Doak Walker Award Watch Lists, Tucker is also second nationally in all purpose yards with 167.4, doing so without returning any kicks.
