UNLV’s Javin White named MW defensive player of the week

UNLV junior Javin White, who made two critical interceptions in Saturday’s 34-29 victory over UNR, was named Mountain West defensive player of the week.

White, who plays linebacker and safety, intercepted both passes in the fourth quarter. The first with 6:02 left helped set up quarterback Armani Rogers’ 1-yard winning touchdown run, and the second secured the victory with 1:19 remaining.

White’s four interceptions this season tie for the conference lead. He also has forced four fumbles.
