Senior cornerback Will Davis has been turning heads with his five-game stretch of getting an interception, and on Monday got recognition for doing something no other Aggie has done in five years.
Davis was named the Western Athletic Conference player of the week for his performance against Idaho after returning a pick for a touchdown, one of Utah State's three interceptions that day. No one in the program had scored on an interception return since 2007.
The WAC announced the award in a Monday news release. The senior's contributions were a big reason the Aggies were able to hold the Vandals to only 52 yards passing the fewest by an Aggie opponent since 1998 in a 45-9 victory that gave Utah State an outright WAC championship and 10 wins.
