IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

That makes two for Josey Jewell. The Iowa senior picked up Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week honors for the second time this season.

The Decorah native matched a career high 16 tackles in Iowa's last second loss to fourth ranked Penn State. That total included three tackles for loss. Jewell's second quarter interception led to Iowa's first touchdown of the game. He also recovered a second half fumble.

The Hawkeyes (3-1, 0-1) play at Michigan State (2-1, 0-0) Saturday.
