Chapel Hill, N.C. -- University of North Carolina senior center Jason Brown earned Atlantic Coast Conference offensive lineman of the week honors for the third time this season following his performance in the Tar Heels' 31-24 victory over Wake Forest.

Brown graded out at 93 percent, had eight knockdown blocks and led an offensive line that blocked for 400 total yards in Carolina's fifth victory of the season. Brown was also a major reason why quarterback Darian Durant scored from three yards out in the third quarter. After Durant seemed to stop at the three-yard line, Brown literally pushed Durant and several Demon Deacon defenders the final three yards for the touchdown.

Brown has won the offensive line player of the week award twice in the last three weeks. He also was honored after Carolina's wins over William & Mary and No. 4 Miami.

Brown is a candidate for the Dave Rimington Award, which is given to the nation's top center. He has already been selected to play in the Senior Bowl in January.
