West Virginia University junior linebacker Doug Rigg
was named ECAC defensive player of the week for his efforts in Saturday’s 31-21 win over Maryland at Milan Puskar Stadium.
Rigg scooped up a first-quarter fumble and ran 51 yards for a touchdown against the Terps. He also accumulated seven tackles. For the season, Rigg shows 16 tackles, an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery for the 3-0 Mountaineers.
West Virginia opens Big 12 play this Saturday against Baylor in a game that will kickoff at noon and will be televised nationally on FX. The game has previously been announced a sellout.
