IRVING, Texas - University of Tulsa linebacker DeAundre Brown was named the Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week in a vote of league media members, it was announced today by the C-USA office. He shared the defensive honor this week with Houston's Phillip Steward.

Brown, a 5'11", 217-pound senior, recorded a game-high 14 tackles with 4.5 tackles for lost yardage totaling -20 yards, three quarterback sacks for -17 yards and one pass break-up in a 33-11 win against UTEP last Thursday night.

With Tulsa holding just a 6-3 halftime lead, Brown led a Tulsa defense with eight stops, including three TFLs and two QB sacks in the second half, while one of his sacks came on a fourth down-and-7 attempt.

Brown ranks among the nation's top-25 for solo tackles (6th), quarterback sacks (8th), tackles for lost yardage (17th) and total tackles (22nd). He has 69 tackles on the year along with 12 stops for -71 yards, eight sacks for -60 yards, four pass break-ups and one interception.

The weekly honor is the second in Brown's career and also the second this season for a Tulsa player. Safety Dexter McCoil won the league's defensive honor earlier this season following a non-conference win over Fresno State.
