Cards Mauldin named Big East Defensive Player of the Week

University of Louisville defensive end Lorenzo Mauldin was named the BIG EAST's Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

 

Mauldin made his second-straight start at defensive end and played a major role in Louisville's 27-25 win over South Florida on Saturday.

 

A native of Atlanta, Ga., Mauldin helped the Cardinals remain one of the 11 unbeaten teams at 7-0 as the Cardinals also improved to 2-0 in BIG EAST play for just the second time. Mauldin had six tackles, including two sacks and three tackles for loss, to go with a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a quarterback hurry. His strip sack and fumble recovery came late in the first half and allowed Louisville to take a 14-3 lead into halftime.

 

In the last two games, Mauldin has registered 11 tackles and 2.5 sacks in wins over Pittsburgh and USF.
