CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

 UNI senior defensive tackle Xavier Williams and junior placekicker Michael Schmadeke earned Missouri Valley Player of the Week honors following the Panthers' 23-3 upset of top ranked North Dakota State.

Williams, earning the defensive honor, tallied 7 tackles and 1 sack in the victory. He helped a UNI defense that held the Bison to just 43 yards rushing, more than 200 below their season average.

Schmadeke hit on 3 out of 3 field goals and added 2 extra points in the win. He's currently the leading scorer among all kickers in the NCAA's FCS division this season. The weekly honor was the third for the junior this season.
