LOGAN, Utah – The Mountain West Conference announced that Utah State linebacker David Woodward and wide receiver/return specialist Savon Scarver have been named conference players of the week.

It’s the first time in both Woodward’s and Scarver’s careers that they have earned this honor.

Woodward was named Defensive Player of the Week after helping the Aggies defense hold Colorado State’s offense under 300 yards of total offense in their 34-24 win. He racked up a game-high 14 tackles, along with two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, which he returned it for an eight-yard touchdown. It’s Woodward’s third double-digit tackle performance this season and the 12th of his career.

Scarver moved up to third all-time in Mountain West history with four kickoff returns for touchdowns after returning a kickoff 100-yards for a touchdown with 7:01 left in the first quarter to tie the game at 7.

Of his four kickoff returns for touchdowns, two have been from 100 yards. Scarver leads the nation in kickoff returns with an average of 41.4 yards per return.

Utah State will travel to No. 5 LSU on Saturday. The game will begin at 11 a.m. and will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
