Syracuse's senior linebacker Parris Bennett was awarded ACC Linebacker of the Week today. This comes on the heels of a stellar performance versus the No. 25-ranked LSU Tigers.

Bennett recorded a season high with 12 tackles including three of which were for a loss. He also added on a safety, quarterback hurry and a pass breakup. The senior linebacker played a big role in keeping LSU 66 yards below their season average in rushing yards.

Bennett is the first Syracuse player to earn an ACC honor thus far during the 2017 season.
