Anthony Nelson got things done in his first game action as a Hawkeye. The freshman defensive end, called in to action after an injury to starter Parker Hesse, forced two fumbles in his Iowa debut. Nelson's effort earned him the first Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor of the 2016 season.

Nelson also recorded six total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a pass break-up in Iowa's season opening win over Miami of Ohio.
