Iowa linebacker Pat Angerer has been named the FWAA/Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week for games of the weekend of Sept. 26. Angerer, a 6-1, 235-pound senior from Bettendorf, Iowa., registered a game-high 14 tackles and produced two key turnovers in Iowa's 21-10 upset victory at Penn State last Saturday night. His 38-yard interception return set up an Iowa touchdown that gave the Hawkeyes an 18-10 advantage in the second half. He also forced a Penn State fumble in the fourth quarter that stalled a Nittany Lions' drive at Iowa's 18-yard line. Angerer will be added to the 2009 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List. The Bronko Nagurski Trophy will be presented to the best defensive player in college football on Dec. 7 by the FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club at the Westin Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. Five finalists for the Nagurski Trophy will be announced on Nov. 18 or 19. Each week during the 2009 season the FWAA All-America Committee will select a national defensive player of the week from nominations made by the 11 Division I Bowl Subdivision Conferences and major independents.
