Posted: Updated:
VERMILLION, S.D. (KWWL) - It's another day and another honor for UNI sophomore Brett McMakin. McMakin has been named an All-Star of the Week by the College Sporting News. This comes one day after he'd been named the Missouri Valley's Defensive Player of the Week.

The Panther linebacker earned the honors after putting together a career day in the win at South Dakota. McMakin tallied 5 total tackles, including 3 sacks. He also picked up his first career interception. The 3 sacks was one shy of the Panther single game record.

McMakin contributed to an overall solid effort by the Panther defense. UNI tied their season high with 7 sacks in the victory.

The Panthers return home on Saturday to face South Dakota State.
