Allen, Moore collect conference weekly awards

IRVING, Texas — UTSA place-kicker Chase Allen and outside linebacker Trey Moore have been named American Athletic Conference Players of the Week for their performances in the 20-13 victory over Texas State last Saturday at the Alamodome.

Allen picked up the special teams award after he turned in a perfect outing in his UTSA debut. The junior transfer from Alabama made both field-goal attempts, splitting the uprights from 46 and 43 yards, and he was good on both extra-point attempts. A native of Colleyville, Texas, his 43-yarder came with 5:47 left to play and provided the final margin.

Moore was honored as the defensive player of the week for recording seven tackles, including three sacks, which contributed to a school-record total of seven for the game. The Roadrunners totaled 10 tackles behind the line of scrimmage and limited the Bobcats to 242 yards of offense, including only 31 on the ground. His three sacks are a career high and tied for the second-most recorded by a Roadrunner in a game. The Smithson Valley High School product leads the nation in sacks per game (2.0) and he tops The American and stands fourth in the FBS in tackles for loss per contest (2.5).

Additionally, UTSA redshirt sophomore running back Kevorian Barnes was named to the AAC Honor Roll. The San Augustine, Texas, native registered his fourth straight 100-yard rushing game dating back to last season, piling up 103 yards on 26 attempts. He helped put the game away with key rushes late in the fourth quarter, as he had carries for 23 and 10 yards that resulted in first downs on the final drive of the contest. He leads The American and ranks 22nd nationally with 206 rushing yards this season.

Rice’s JT Daniels earned the offensive player of the week honor.

The Roadrunners will host Army West Point (1-1) on Friday, Sept. 15. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. at the Alamodome and the game will air on ESPN and Ticket 760. Tickets are on sale by calling 210-458-UTSA (8872) or visiting
