By Cam Bonner, contributing writer

Towson football linebacker Rodney Roane Jr. was named CAA Defensive Player of the Week after recording two sacks, a forced fumble, a pass breakup and a quarterback hurry. Roane’s strip sack was pivotal in the fourth quarter, which led to a Towson touchdown and a win over No. 13 William & Mary.

Roane’s efforts, recognized in the CAA’s Weekly Awards on Monday, helped Towson pull off an upset with a 34-24 win at William & Mary. The win marked Towson’s second upset win on the road in its last three games.

Roane’s forced fumble against William & Mary aided a second-half comeback for Towson, who was down 17-3 at halftime but scored 31 unanswered points to win 34-24.

This season, Roane has 19 tackles, three sacks, one pass breakup and a forced fumble.

Towson’s next game offers a chance to get its third top-25 win, this time at home against No. 5/6 Delaware on Saturday at 1 p.m.
