Iowa defensive end Parker Hesse has been named Big Ten Freshman of the Week following a big performance in the Hawkeyes' 28-20 win at Nebraska.

The Waukon native picked up his first career interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter. He also equaled his season high with six tackles in the game.

Hesse has played in all 12 Iowa games this season and has made 7 starts taking over for the injured Drew Ott.

The Big Ten honor was the first of his career.
