ATLANTA - Sixth-year senior safety Bryan Williams led the football team to its first-ever shutout and is this week's Georgia State Student-Athlete of the Week, powered by the U.S. Marines.
Williams grabbed two interceptions, both in the end zone, to lead Georgia State to the first shutout in school history with a 28-0 victory at Charlotte.
Williams, who also had six tackles in the game, and the Panthers held Charlotte to just 273 yards of offense and forced five three-and-outs on 11 possessions, including four straight drives to start the game.
Williams' first pick came at the end of the first half and ended Charlotte's most significant scoring threat after the 49ers completed a 52-yard pass down to the GSU 12-yard line with 16 seconds left in the half.
The Miami, Fla., native grabbed another interception in the fourth quarter as he tied the Georgia State single-game record. He now has four career interceptions.
The first sixth-year player in Georgia State history, Williams was granted the extra year after missing nearly two full seasons with a back injury.
Georgia State will have this weekend off before opening Sun Belt play on Oct. 7 at Coastal Carolina.
