Burbank Named ACC Co-Offensive Lineman of the Week
Oct. 6, 2014
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia center Ross Burbank was named ACC Co-Offensive Lineman of the Week for games played through Oct. 4.
The weekly ACC honor is the first for the junior from Virginia Beach, Va. Burbank played every snap at center and graded out at 93 percent in Saturday’s 24-19 win over Pitt. Burbank shared the honor with Georgia Tech’s Shaq Mason.
Burbank made all of the line calls for a Cavaliers offensive line that helped UVa rush for 225 yards against a Pitt defense that entered the game allowing just 106.8 yards per game on the ground (24th nationally). The total was the most versus Pitt in 11 games, and came against a Panther defense that was ranked eighth in total defense at 265.2 yard allowed per game. The Cavaliers finished with 346 total yards, and the offensive line did not allow a sack (one was credited to Pitt on an intentional grounding penalty).
