Angerer receives national weekly honor

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- Iowa linebacker Pat Angerer has been named the Lott Trophy IMPACT Player of the Week.  

Angerer, a 6-1, 235-pound senior from Bettendorf, Iowa, had a team high 14 tackles, an interception (returned for 38 yards) that set up a touchdown and a forced fumble that helped seal Iowa's 21-10 win over previously unbeaten Penn State.  The Hawkeyes are 4-0.   

Iowa will receive $1,000 for its general scholarship fund in recognition of Angerer's accomplishment.

"Angerer had a great game along with the entire Iowa defense," said former Ohio State Coach John Cooper, a member of the Legends Coaches who selected the Player of the Week.  "Angerer's interception broke Penn State's back.  If Penn State could have kept that drive alive, they could have won the game, but that interception ended their undefeated season."

Angerer was also named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.
