McMullen, a sophomore wide receiver from Richmond, Va., was named the conference Offensive Back of the Week by turning in one of the best single-game performances by a wide receiver in school history. Using his 6-4 frame to great advantage, McMullen hauled in eight passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns, figures that all represent career highs. His eight receptions are tied for 11th in school history, while the 189 yards are third in the UVa record book. McMullen leads the team with 15 receptions for 288 yards (19.2 avg.) and two touchdowns.
Thweatt, a senior linebacker from Chesterfield, Va., was named the league's Defensive Back of the Week. He led the Cavalier defense once again in the win over the Blue Devils with a career-high 15 tackles, including 10 solo stops, as Virginia held Duke to just 331 yards of total offense. This is the third week in a row Thweatt has registered a career high for tackles. He leads the ACC in tackling with an average of 14.0 tackles per game. He is 11th in school history with 304 career tackles.
Thweatt was also named the ACC Player of the Week by the Rivals.com network for his play in the win over Duke.
