Teddy Bridgewater Is The First AAC Offensive Player Of The Week

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Something tells me this could be a recurring theme over the next three months.

Also, congrats to Preston Brown on his spot on the weekly honor roll.

Here's the release from the league with the most massive field logos in all the land:

AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Teddy Bridgewater • Jr. • QB • Louisville • Miami, Fla.
Bridgewater, the 2012 Big East Offensive Player of the Year, picked up where he left off last season in Louisville's 49-7 win against Ohio Sunday. He completed his first nine passes on his way to a 23-for-28, 355-yard day that included five touchdown passes and one interception. Bridgewater threw four touchdown passes in the first half, helping the Cardinals take a 28-0 lead into the break and giving him 13 consecutive games with at least one TD pass.

AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Terrance Plummer • Jr. • LB • UCF • Orange Park, Fla.
Plummer had a game-high 10 tackles with three tackles for loss and a pass breakup in the Knights' 38-7 win against Akron last Thursday. He led a UCF defense that kept Akron off the scoreboard until the Zips' final possession as Akron finished with 250 yards of offense, crossed midfield just three times and made just one trip to the red zone.

AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Richie Leone • Sr. • P/K • Houston • Roswell, Ga.
Already considered one of the nation's top punters, Leone added placekicking and kickoff duties in the Cougars' 62-13 win against Southern. He scored 11 points - the first points of his career - by converting field goals of 30 and 38 yards and going 5-for-5 on PATs. Leone also averaged 47.0 yards on four punts, dropping three inside the 20-yard line.
