IOWA CITY, IA – – Iowa linebacker Pat Angerer and defensive end Adrian Clayborn have become the Hawkeyes’ fourth and fifth Big Ten Players of the Week this season. Angerer won the Defensive Player of the Week honor while Clayborn took the Special Teams award. The honors came following Iowa’s 21-10 win over previously unbeaten and fifth ranked Penn State. The announcement was made tonight on the Big Ten Network’s weekly recap show.

Angerer, a 6-1, 235-pound senior from Bettendorf, posted a team-high 14 tackles against Penn State and recorded his first interception. He returned the fourth-quarter interception 38 yards, setting up an Iowa touchdown. He also forced a late game fumble to help assure the Hawkeye victory. It’s Angerer’s second league honor.  He earned Player of the Week honors following Iowa’s win over Wisconsin last year.

Angerer was also named Linebacking Performer of the Week by the College Football Performance Award committee.

Clayborn is a 6-3, 282-pound junior from St. Louis. He blocked a Penn State punt early in the fourth quarter, picked it up and ran 53 yards for the go-ahead touchdown. It was his first collegiate touchdown. It’s also his first league Player of the Week award. Clayborn also was named ESPN.com’s Big Ten Special Team’s Player of the Week.

Iowa’s other defensive end, Broderick Binns, was named ESPN.com’s Defensive Player of the Week. Binns forced Penn State quarterback Darryl Clark to fumble in the endzone and that led to a second quarter safety.  He finished the game with eight tackles that included 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 quarterback sacks.

It’s the fourth week in a row at least one Iowa player has been picked by the Big Ten as a Player of the Week. Punter Ryan Donahue shared the special teams honor for his punting against Arizona. Linebacker Jeremiha Hunter won co-Special Team honors following Iowa’s season-opening win over Northern Iowa and defensive back Tyler Sash won co-defensive honors after Iowa’s win at Iowa State.

The nationally ranked Hawkeyes (13th by the AP and 17th by the USA Today Coaches Poll) are 4-0 and host Arkansas State Saturday at 11 a.m. Over 3,000 tickets remain for the game, which will be shown on ESPN2.
