CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

After securing a key late turnover on Saturday, UNI's Suni Lane earned Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week honors.

Lane recovered a fourth quarter fumble in the Panther's 24-17 win at Southern Illinois. The true freshman also recorded seven tackles, including four solo tackles. He's the first Panther to earn the newcomer honor since Aaron Bailey in the 2015 season.

Lane has started in back to back games for UNI at free safety.
