LB – Iowa


Pat Angerer has received the FWAA/Bronko Nagurski Defensive Player of the week award. Angerer led the Hawkeye’s defense to a second straight victory against #5 ranked Penn State. The senior LB racked up 14 tackles and caused two turnovers. Angerer intercepted a Daryl Clark pass, returning it for 38 yards and also caused a fumble in the 4th quarter during a Penn State red zone possession.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy will be presented to the best defensive player in college football on Dec. 7. Last season, Texas DE Brian Orakpo was the recipient of the end of season award.
