Michigan's Jabrill Peppers named co-Walter Camp player of the week

ANN ARBOR, MICH. - Michigan's all-everything Jabrill Peppers has his first honor of the season.

Peppers joined Oklahoma State's James Watson as the Walter Camp FBS Players of the Week.

In Michigan's 45-28 win over Colorado on Saturday, Peppers was everywhere, recording nine tackles, 3 1/2 for loss on defense, and had 204 all-purpose yards.

He was a terror on in the return game especially with a 54-yard punt return for Michigan's final touchdown and a 55-yard kickoff return to give U-M great field position earlier.

Currently he leads the nation, averaging 3.2 tackles for loss per game, ranks fourth in punt return average at 21.6 yards per return and is 15th nationally in combined kick returns.

He also made his offensive debut this season on the first drive, with two rushes for 24 yards.

Peppers is the sixth Wolverine since 2004 and the first U-M defensive player since Brandon Herron in 2011 to win the Camp honor.

U-M coach Jim Harbaugh said U-M would not have won the game without Peppers and he was clearly the best player in the game on Saturday.
