University of Houston senior cornerback Loyce Means was named Conference USA Defensive Player of the Week for his standout performance with two interceptions in UH's 42-23 win over Tulane, Saturday.

Means recorded his second and third interceptions of the year on consecutive defensive drives to halt Tulane's second-half resurgence. He returned the second pick 42 yards for a touchdown to give UH a final score of 42-23. The Green Wave had scored 10 second-half points to bring the game within five points before Means' first interception, which he returned 13 yards. He also had four tackles, one pass break up and a quarterback hurry. This is the second time in his career that Means has earned C-USA Defensive Player of the Week honors (Nov. 17, 2008).

The Cougars have an open weekend on Oct. 2 before returning to play on Oct. 9 at Robertson Stadium against SEC-foe Mississippi State. Game time is set for 7 pm CT.
Houston got lucky and no one will know. Means did save the game for Houston. His first interception came with 4 min left in the game and Tulane trailing 28-24 and driving. That put the game out of reach. If you really want to know about defensive players of the week read this article: http://www.nj.com/rutgersfootball/index ... itz-h.html.
