Oliver named NFL Rookie of the Week after dominant outing

Ed Oliver is making his mark in the NFL.

The former Houston defensive tackle turned Buffalo Bill displayed his talents to the nation on Thanksgiving, sacking Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott twice en route to a 26-15 win over Dallas.

His performance earned national recognition, as voters named him the NFL Rookie of the Week. Oliver tallied four combined tackles, a QB hit and a forced fumble along with his two sacks.

Oliver, the No. 9 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, called himself a Cougar for three years, earning First Team All-American nods thrice in the process.
