IRVING (C-USA/SMU) - SMU junior Kevin Pope has been named the Conference USA Special Teams Player of the Week. Pope recovered two fumbles, including one which he returned for a touchdown, as SMU routed Houston, 72-42, last Thursday.

Pope returned a fumble of the opening kickoff of the second half for the first TD of his career, pushing the SMU lead to 35-14. It was one of two special teams fumble recoveries for Pope and two of nine takeaways by the Mustangs on the night. He also added a pair of tackles in the win.

Pope is the third Mustang to earn a weekly honor from the league in 2012, as Kenneth Acker and Randall Joyner have each been chosen previously. C-USA Football Players of the Week are voted on by a panel of the league's media.

Pope and his Mustang teammates return to the field on Saturday, Oct. 27, when Memphis comes to Ford Stadium for a 2 p.m. Homecoming match-up. Tickets are available at 214-SMU-GAME.
