Heyman, Bushell capture Big East weekly honors again

For the second time in three weeks, Dexter Heyman has been named the Big East Defensive Player of the Week and Adrian Bushell has been named the league's Special Teams Player of the Week. The duo earned the same pair of honors following Louisville's 38-35 victory over West Virginia.

Here's the release:

Heyman, who was named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week,  had seven tackles, including a sack and 3.5 tackles for loss, along with an interception to lead Louisville to a 34-20 win against Connecticut, lifting the Cardinals into a tie for first place in the BIG EAST standings. Heyman led a defense that limited the Huskies to just 76 rushing yards, helping the Cardinals to their fourth win in their last five games and making Louisville bowl-eligible for the second consecutive season.
 
Bushell was tabbed as BIG EAST Special Teams Player of the Week after he returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to send Louisville on its way to a 34-20 win against Connecticut, putting the Cardinals in a first-place tie in the BIG EAST standings with one game remaining. Bushell averaged 68.0 yards on two kickoff returns against the Huskies.
