AMES (KWWL) -

Jared Farley sealed UNI's win over Iowa State on Saturday night. On Sunday, the Panther linebacker was named the Missouri Valley Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in that game.

The junior tallied a team high eight tackles. His biggest play, however, came in the final moments when he picked up his second career interception, picking off Cyclone quarterback Joel Lanning to help UNI walk off with a 25-20 win.

The turnover also gave Farley's father Mark Farley his 130th win making him the all time wins leader in UNI history.
