Iowa State's Joel Lanning has been named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week by College Sports Madness.

The senior, who made the move from quarterback to linebacker during the off-season, led ISU with eight tackles in the win over Akron.

Lanning earned one and a half sacks and picked up his first career interception during the third quarter.

Lanning was playing just his third game on the defensive side of the ball.
