McKillop earns national honors

Pitt middle linebacker Scott McKillop was honored as the national defensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Football Foundation for his performance against South Florida.

McKillop, a 6-foot-2, 240-pound fifth-year senior, recorded a team-high 12 tackles (all solo) — one to stop a fake field goal — with three tackles for loss, including two sacks for losses totaling 24 yards in the 26-21 victory over then-No. 10 USF Thursday in Tampa.

McKillop leads the Big East in tackles (10.4), solo tackles (7.4) and tackles for loss (1.8) per game.
