Davis, Ulmo Named SoCon Players Of The Week

Monday, October 30, 2017
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football team took home a pair of weekly honors from the Southern Conference today.  Senior linebacker Tae Davis is the Defensive Player of the Week, while freshman kicker Victor Ulmo is the Special Teams Player of the Week. 

Davis had 14 tackles and a game-changing forced fumble in the Mocs' 23-21 road win over No. 8 Samford on Saturday. The senior from Oxford, Ala., stuffed the stat sheet on the day, adding a quarterback hurry and a pass break-up and counting 1.
5 tackles for loss among his career-best tackle total, 11 of which were solo stops. With the Mocs trailing 21-20 and Samford inside the UTC 30-yard line threatening to add on, Davis forced a fumble with 2:37 left in the game to set up Chattanooga's game-winning drive.

Ulmo kicked the game-winning field goal with 19 seconds left Saturday.  The freshman from Chattanooga also kicked off five times for an average of 64.0 yards per kick, recording one touchback. With Chattanooga trailing by one point late in the fourth quarter, Ulmo converted from 39 yards out to give the Mocs the win. The 39-yard make was the second-longest of the season for the rookie, who improved to 6-for-7 in field-goal attempts on the year and has made his last three.
These are the first career honors for both and the first weekly awards for UTC this season. 

The Mocs are back on the road this weekend, traveling to Wofford for a 1:30 p.m. (E.D.T.) kickoff on Saturday in Spartanburg, S.C.  Tickets are available now for the season finale against ETSU on Nov. 18 in Finley Stadium.  Order online on GoMocs.com or call the UTC Ticket Office at (423) 266-MOCS (6627).
