USF sophomore kicker Coby Weiss received recognition for his performance in the Bulls’ 25-24 comeback victory over Tulsa on Friday night, being named the AAC Special Teams Player of the Week.

The Tennessee State transfer was 2-for-2 on field goals at Tulsa, including a 22-yarder to put USF on the board in the first quarter and a game-winner with just two seconds remaining from the same distance to complete the comeback.

Weiss is now 6-for-8 on field goals this season and becomes the fourth conference player of the week honor for USF in 2018.

Junior running back Jordan Cronkrite, after running for 151 yards and a big 66-yard touchdown in the win against the Golden Hurricane, was also named to the conference Honor Roll.

The Bulls return home to Raymond James Stadium on Saturday night versus UConn. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
