PLAYER OF WEEK
UM will have to contend with ACC Player of the Week Trey Marshall, who earned the ACC’s Co-Defensive Back of the Week honors Monday for a team-leading 11 tackles and a pass breakup in FSU’s 24-16 win over Wake Forest. Marshall played safety and nickel back and led the defense when starters Terrance Smith and Nate Andrews left the game with injuries.
