UNLV senior linebacker Javin White was named Mountain West defensive player of the week on Monday.
He had seven tackles including 2½ for loss, a 44-yard interception return and a forced fumble in the Rebels’ 34-10 victory at Vanderbilt on Saturday. White’s interception set up a field goal and the fumble helped lead to a touchdown.
This was White’s second defensive player of the week award. He first received the honor after making two fourth-quarter interceptions in last season’s 34-29 victory over UNR.
