RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Nevada players Albert Rosette and Colin Ditsworth are among the Mountain West Players of the Week for games through Nov. 17.

Rosette receives the Defensive Player award and Ditsworth receives Special Teams recognition.

From Mountain West:

ALBERT ROSETTE, NEVADA

Senior, Linebacker, Antioch, Calif./De La Salle HS

Senior linebacker Albert Rosette recorded a game-high 15 tackles (eight solo) and made several key stops as the Nevada defense made a second-half stand to lead the Wolf Pack to a 31-24 win at New Mexico. On the Lobos’ first drive of the fourth quarter, with Nevada clinging to a seven-point lead, Rosette made five consecutive tackles, including four solo stops, to end UNM’s drive. One of those tackles included a stop of Lobo quarterback Cole Gautsche for no gain on fourth-and-one to give the ball back to Nevada. On the next UNM possession, Rosette and teammate Dray Bell stopped running back Kasey Carrier a yard short of the marker on a third-down play to force another Lobo punt.

SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

COLIN DITSWORTH, NEVADA

Sophomore, Kicker, Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman HS

Nevada sophomore Colin Ditsworth, filling in for injured first-string kicker Allen Hardison, connected on all four of his extra-point attempts and made his first career field goal in Nevada’s 31-24 win at New Mexico. The Las Vegas, Nev., native hit all three extra-point attempts in the first half and his fourth attempt in the second half. On Nevada’s opening drive of the second half, Ditsworth drilled a 24-yarder to extend the Wolf Pack’s lead to 24-17.
