A pair of USF seniors from Miami earned conference honors this week following the Bulls' 37-20 victory over UConn on Saturday.

Quarterback Quinton Flowers was named the AAC Offensive Player of the Week while kicker Emilio Nadelman was tabbed as Special Teams Player of the Week.

Flowers earned his fourth career conference player of the week honor by notching a school-record 516 yards of total offense against the Husky defense.

He threw for a career high 385 yards on 23-of-37 attempts and three touchdowns, just 24 yards shy of the school passing record set by SUPER BOWL WINNING QUARTERBACK B.J. Daniels in 2011. He also added 131 yards on the ground, his 13th career 100+ yard rushing day.

Nadelman went three-for-three in field goal attempts on Saturday to earn his third conference player of the week honor just this season. His 51-yarder in the fourth quarter was a career long.

The Miami Central alum currently leads the American with an 85.7 field goal percentage. With 18 successful attempts this year, he is just one shy of tying the school season record set by Maikon Bonani (2011) and Delbert Alvarado (2007). He also needs 16 more points to break Alvarado’s single-season scoring record of 109 points.
