A pair of players from non-traditional football powers have claimed weekly Walter Camp honors, the foundation announced Sunday.

SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert and Duke linebacker Kelby Brown were named the National Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively, for their performances in Week 9.

Gilbert’s 635 yards of total offense (538 passing, 97 rushing) in SMU’s win over Temple were the seventh-most in FBS history.  His passing total was the most in school history.

Gilbert became the first Mustang to claim Camp honors since the weekly award was first introduced in 2004.

In Duke’s 13-10 win over a ranked Virginia Tech team, Brown was credited with 14 tackles, one for loss, and an interception late in the fourth quarter that helped seal the victory.  With the win, the Blue Devils are bowl-eligible in back-to-back seasons for the first time in school history.

Below is the year-to-date list of weekly 2013 Camp honorees:

WEEK 1: Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones, Virginia safety Anthony Harris

    Good for Kelby Brown and Duke.

    Everyone talks about the recent success of Northwestern, Stanford and Vanderbilt – rightfully so. All highly regarded academic schools with a wretched history in football.

    Duke is going bowling for two straight years. The first time that has EVER happened.

    Will Duke ever be a power or a Top 25 force? No. But kudos to David Cutcliffe and the job he’s done in Durham.

    I’m not a Duke fan, but this is a nice story to follow. Their football team is far more easier to root for than their basketball team.
