Two Syracuse Orange football players earned ACC Player of the Week awards for their roles in a 31-7 victory over Louisville last Saturday.

Sean Tucker was named ACC Running Back of the Week, while Marlowe Wax was named ACC Linebacker of the Week.

Tucker totaled 184 all-purpose yards (100 rushing, 84 receiving) and two touchdowns in the win. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry, rushed for one of his scores, and caught a career-high six passes, including a 55-yard touchdown.

Syracuse will hit the road to take on UConn on Saturday at 7 p.m.
