Fresh off leading his second straight fourth-quarter comeback in his second career college game, UNC true freshman Sam Howell has earned yet another weekly award for his performance.

Howell was named a Manning Award Star of the Week on Monday, not long after earning his first career ACC Quarterback of the Week honor.

The Monroe native was one of eight quarterbacks recognized this week, after throwing for 274 yards and two touchdowns against Miami. This includes a 9-yard strike to Dazz Newsome with 1:01 remaining that provided the difference on the scoreboard.

Other quarterbacks selected as Manning Award Stars of the Week include: Joe Burrow (LSU), Sam Ehlinger (Texas), Justin Herbert (Oregon), Josh Jackson (Maryland), Tyler Johnston III (UAB), Kedon Slovis (USC) and Elijah Sindelar (Purdue).
