CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Sophomore quarterback Brad Kaaya was named ACC Offensive Back of the Week after he led the Hurricanes to a 36-33 overtime victory over Nebraska Saturday afternoon at Sun Life Stadium.

Kaaya picked up his second career ACC Player of the Week honor thanks to a career day through the air.

The California native Kaaya finished the day by going 25-of-42 for a career-high 379 yards. He also tossed a pair of touchdowns and had just one interception.

Kaaya has now thrown a touchdown pass in 16 consecutive games, while his second-half interception was his first in 110 attempts.

The Hurricanes are off this week and will return to action on Oct. 1 as they travel to Cincinnati for a Thursday night matchup against the Bearcats.
