Rogers Makes It Two Weeks In A Row

HOUSTON, Texas (Oct. 30) - For the second week in a row senior linebacker Wayne Rogers (Waco, Texas) was honored for his play on the field, as Conference USA today named him Co-Defensive Player of the Week. Rogers shares his award with Southern Miss's Roy Magee.

Rogers was a one-man, wrecking machine against nationally-ranked Southern Miss last Saturday, registering 16 total tackles in holding the Golden Eagles to their lowest point total (six) in their five years in Conference USA. On top of his 16 stops, Rogers recorded a season-high seven tackles for losses and two sacks. Rogers now has 20 tackles behind the line of scrimmage this season, four shy of breaking the school record of 23 set by T.J. Turner in 1984.

Rogers now has 51 TFLs and 17 sacks in his Houston career, dating back his freshman season in 1997. His 51 tackles for losses are second-best all-time, trailing Turner's 66 set between the 1982-85 seasons. As for his sack total, Rogers is just two shy of cracking the UH career top 10.

Since recording five tackles-a season low-against SMU back on September 30, Rogers has tallied 48 tackles in just three games. During that stretch Rogers has posted 15 tackles for losses of 77 yards and six sacks. Rogers has posted double-digits in six of eight games this season and is averaging 12.8 tackles per game. For the season Rogers has a team-leading 103 tackles, including 72 unassisted.

With his two honors in successive weeks, Rogers becomes the fourth Cougar honored this season with C-USA player-of-the-week honors. Sophomores Brandon Middleton (wide receiver) and Joffrey Reynolds (running back) were honored last month on the offensive side of the ball.

The Cougars still have an outside shot at a bowl berth if they were to win their remaining games to become bowl eligible. That quest begins this Saturday, when Houston travels to New Orleans to face Tulane at 5 p.m. in the Louisiana Superdome.
