Klein earns Big 12 honor

Posted:
AMES (KWWL) -

Iowa State's A.J. Klein picked the right time to have his best game of the year, and he's earned the Big 12's Defensive Player of the Week honor for that effort.

Klein tallied a season high 14 tackles in the Cyclone's double overtime upset victory over second ranked Oklahoma State.  The ISU senior also forced a fumble, which was part of a Cyclone defensive effort that created 5 turnovers in the game.  Iowa State also held OSU to just 60 total rushing yards in the game.

Next up, the Cyclones travel to face #12 Oklahoma State on Saturday.
