The accolades continue to roll in for Boston College junior defensive end Harold Landry, as he earned his third career ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week award after a massive performance in BC's win over Wake Forest.

Landry returned to his home state of North Carolina and registered three sacks in Boston College's bowl-clinching victory over the Demon Deacons, marking the second time Landry has earned the award after a big game in his home state. Landry's three sacks pushed his total to a BC-record 15 on the year, and tied him for the national lead.

Landry previously won the award after BC snapped its lengthy ACC losing streak at NC State earlier this season, and also won the award after a big game against Florida State in 2015. The new BC record holder will now have one more game to add to his historic totals.

Along with being tied for the national lead in sacks with 15, Landry also leads the nation with seven forced fumbles, and sits at fourth in the country with 20.5 tackles for loss.

The award may not be the last for Landry this season, as the junior seems to be in the running for a number of ACC postseason awards, and his gaudy numbers will surely generate some All-American consideration as well.
