The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced its National Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week for games ending September 12, and Minnesota linebacker Nate Triplett earns the defensive accolade. Triplett recorded a career-high 17 tackles and returned a fumble 52 yards for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter as the Golden Gophers came-from-behind to defeat Air Force, 20-13. Triplett, who had 12 solo tackles, added a pass break up in the contest. This is the sixth year that the Walter Camp Football Foundation will honor one offensive and one defensive player as its national Bowl Subdivision player of the week during the regular season. Recipients are selected by a panel of national media members and administered by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.
