Not bad after 1 game
Named after college football’s first three-time first-team All-American, the award is presented annually to the nation’s top defensive end.
All three of Chambers’ sacks came on third down to force Rice punts. The three sacks were the second-highest week one sack total in the nation behind the 3.5 sacks of Cincinnati’s Cortez Broughton.
Chambers’ three sacks were the most by a Houston defender in a game since current Baltimore Raven linebacker Tyus Bowser accomplished the feat vs. Tulane in 2016.
