Navorro Bowman Named Co-Defensive POTW

A Penn State linebacker earns Big Ten Player Of The Week honors – in other news the earth is still spinning on it's axis.

In his first start, Bowman recorded career highs with 11 tackles, five tackles for loss and three sacks while adding a forced fumble and his first interception during a 45-3 win over Temple. The sophomore linebacker pushed the opposing offense back 17 yards with his tackles for loss, including 13 yards with three sacks, and returned the pick 29 yards inside the Owls' 20-yard line.

Hard to argue with those numbers, it looks like Penn State may have something here. (HT: RUTS over at BSD)

"four tackles for loss, three sacks and a forced fumble"

Not a bad stat line but I agree, Bowman's numbers were a little more impressive.
