IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- University of Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn has been named Big Ten co-Defensive Player of the Week.  He becomes the seventh Hawkeye to be named Big Ten Player of the Week this season. He shared this week's defensive honor with defensive end Thaddeus Gibson of Ohio State.

Clayborn is a 6-3, 282-pound junior from St. Louis. MO.  It's the second time this season he has won league honors.  He was also named Special Teams Player of the Week after he blocked a punt and took it in for a touchdown against Penn State on Sept. 26th.  In Iowa's most recent 15-13 win at Michigan State, Clayborn had four tackles, two sacks for a minus 19 yards and three tackles for losses totaling 21 yards.  He also forced a fumble.
