Notre Dame graduate student defensive lineman Daelin Hayes was named ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week for his performance in the 31-13 win at Georgia Tech last week. The selection marks the first ACC weekly honor for Hayes, and the sixth of the season for the Irish.

Hayes, named the Pro Football Focus Defensive MVP of the Week, totaled 2.0 sacks and two forced fumbles at Georgia Tech, both career-high single-game marks for the graduate student. Both forced fumbles came on the sacks. Hayes’ two forced fumbles tie for the most in a single game among all FBS players this season, and he was the only player in the Power 5 to reach the mark over the weekend.
