CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The Missouri Valley Football Conference named UNI quarterback Eli Dunne the Offensive Player of the Week on Sunday.

The honor comes on the heels of a brilliant performance in the sophomore's first start. Dunne passed for 418 yards and two touchdowns in an impressive 61-7 win over Missouri State. The Grinnell native completed his first 12 passes in the ballgame.

The performance marked the first time since 2009 that a Panther quarterback passed for more than 400 yards. Dunne had seven completions of more than 20 yards in the game.
