Two more weekly honors came UNC freshman quarterback Sam Howell’s way on Monday, as he was named a Manning Award Star of the Week and earned a spot on the Davey O’Brien Award Great Eight list.

Both honors are given each week to the nation’s top quarterback performances from the week before.

In a 38-22 win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta this past Saturday, Howell completed 33 of his 51 passes for 376 yards and four touchdowns–setting UNC freshman records for both completions and passing yards.

The 376 yards rank 14th all-time for a single game in school history.
