    (CEDAR CITY, Utah) - Southern Utah linebacker Matt Holley has been named this week's ROOT SPORTS Big Sky Defensive Player of the Week, the conference announced today.

    Holley, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior from Las Vegas, Nev. (Centennial HS) tallied three tackles for loss, including a sack, forced one fumble and recovered two more fumbles on the night. All three of the fumble plays resulted in scores, either directly or indirectly. He returned his first fumble recovery 18 yards for SUU's second touchdown of the game while the other came at the FLC 19 yard line and the Thunderbirds scored on the next play. His solo sack and fumble-forced came on the same play when FLC QB Jordan Doyle coughed up the ball and Toi Taufa picked it up and returned it 40 yards, setting up another SUU touchdown.

    Holley is SUU's second ROOT SPORTS Big Sky Player of the Week this season. Placekicker Colton Cook earned the special teams award last week.
