Iowa senior linebacker Abdul Hodge was today named Big Ten co-Defensive Player of the Week along with Penn State linebacker Paul Posluszny.
BLACK OUT SATURDAY
Fans of the Iowa Hawkeye are encouraged to wear black on Saturday, Oct. 22, when the Hawkeyes entertain Michigan in the first-ever ‘Black Out Saturday” event at the UI.
Hodge racked up a game and career-high 18 tackles, including 11 solo stops and two tackles for loss, to lead Iowa to a 35-7 victory over Illinois. The two-time first team all-Big Ten selection helped the Hawkeye defense limit Illinois to a single touchdown while topping his previous best of 16 tackles recorded twice during the 2003 campaign.
The senior linebacker ranks second in the Big Ten with 11.6 tackles per game, trailing only teammate Chad Greenway, who is averaging 13.8 stops per outing. Hodge picks up his first career weekly accolade and the second for an Iowa linebacker in three weeks after Greenway was honored on Sept. 19.
