College football: SU’s Eskridge, Lynch honored


SYRACUSE — Syracuse University’s Durell Eskridge and Cameron Lynch were each named Atlantic Coast Conference football Players of the Week on Monday.

Lynch was selected as Linebacker of the Week after registering 11 tackles, including three for a loss, and two sacks in the Orange’s 17-16 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Eskridge shared Defensive Back of the Week honors with Miami’s Tracy Howard. Eskridge, a two-time award winner this season, tallied a game-high 12 tackles, including a career-high nine solo takedowns, and a forced fumble.

Eskridge leads the Orange with 78 tackles this season and Lynch is second with 59. Monday marked the first time two SU players received ACC honors in the same week.

SU (5-6 overall, 3-4 ACC) will close the regular season by hosting Boston College at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the Carrier Dome. A victory would give the Orange bowl eligibility.
