[Bumped. Congratulations to Klug, of course, but he only dominated the second half of an absolute laugher. Don't most guys who win POTW, like, start?--OPS]
Karl Klug, Iowa, SO, DE, Caledonia, Minn./Caledonia
After missing most of last season due to injury, Klug posted career highs with nine tackles and two sacks while also forcing a fumble to help the Iowa defense post a shutout against Florida International. The sophomore defensive end’s second sack forced a fumble that was recovered by Iowa on FIU’s final drive. The Hawkeyes limited the Golden Panthers to 56 rushing yards and four-of-15 on third downs. Iowa posted its fifth shutout in Kirk Ferentz’ nine-plus seasons as head coach and its second straight dominant defensive outing, after holding Maine to a field goal on Aug. 30. Klug earns his first weekly honor.
