Football: Babb Wins Sun Belt Record Third Straight Player of the Week

Daryl Cetnar, Sports Information –

LAFAYETTE – Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns quarterback Jerry Babb won his third consecutive Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week award, as announced by the conference office Monday.

The senior quarterback becomes the first player (in any category) to be named player of the week three consecutive weeks. He was named player of the week on Oct. 2 with 233 rushing and passing yards and three touchdowns in the Cajuns 33-14 win over Eastern Michigan. He also earned player of the week honors on Sept. 25 with a three touchdown performance in UL’s 48-7 win over North Carolina A&T.

Jamario Thomas holds the record for total player of the weeks in one season with 4 (2004).

On Saturday, Babb led the Cajuns to an incredible 31-28 comeback victory at Houston. Trailing 21-0 in the second quarter, Babb got Louisiana-Lafayette on the board with a 14-yard touchdown run (he had 12 rushes for 73 yards). He came out in the second half and led UL to a score on every offensive possession. The Cajuns dominated the second half, outgaining UH 249-113 and outscoring the Cougars 21-7. Babb directed scoring drives of 14-plays, 62 yards, 9-plays, 47 yards, 7-plays 54 yards and the game-winning TD drive with 62 seconds remaining on an 18-play, 85-yard drive. He personally converted 6-of-9 third downs in the second half either rushing or passing (including 4-of-4 in the fourth quarter). With 62 ticks left, Babb hit tight end Kevin Belton with the go-ahead score and then upped the Cajuns margin with a two-point conversion pass.

The individual Sun Belt weekly honor is the fifth of Babb’s career.
