(Edmond-AP) -- Two Central Oklahoma players earned Lone Star Conference North Division player of the week honors.

A-J Haglund took the special teams award, while Dwight DeVaughn got defensive accolades.

Haglund -- a junior placekicker -- made the game-winning field goal in UCO's 24-to-21 road win over Texas A-and-M Commerce on Saturday. He kicked a 32-yarder with 1:16 left to break a 21-all tie. He also made all three extra point tries in the victory.

DeVaughn -- a senior cornerback -- led a UCO defense that allowed just 75 second-half yards as the Bronchos rallied from a 21-to-7 deficit. He recovered a fumble at the Texas A&M-Commerce four-yard line that led to one UCO touchdown.

He also intercepted the Lions on their final possession with 52 seconds left to seal the win and added five tackles with a pass broken up.

UCO is 4-and-0.
