Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Pair of Pitt players highlight the first ACC Player of the Week honors for the 2014 season.

Following Pittsburgh's 62-0 win over Delaware on Saturday, a couple Panthers were recognized by the ACC for their individual performances.

Sophomore running back James Conner rushed for 153 yards and four touchdowns, averaging over 10 yards a carry.

Conner was not tackled behind the line of scrimmage on any of his carries, is tied nationally after Week One for the national scoring lead, averaging 24 points a game.

A big factor in Conner not being tackles for a loss, amongst other things such as opening holes at the line of scrimmage, right guard Matt Rotheram was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week.

The fifth-year senior from North Olmsted, Ohio, graded out as Pitt's top offensive lineman for the game. Pitt's run game churned out 409 rushing yards with seven rushing scores.
