College Football Update: Texas Longhorns vs. Iowa Hawkeyes edition
As convenient follow-up to Jon’s very special post just for Zeekgeek, it’s timely to mention Texas safety Earl Thomas was named Big 12 Defensive Player Of The Week for his two-interception performance against Oklahoma. He also led the team with seven tackles and broke up three passes. It is the fourth time a Longhorn has won the honor, and the second time already for Thomas.
In Big Ten news, ESPN.com blogger Adam Rittenberg gives an interesting “Big Ten thumbs up-thumbs down” for this past weekend’s performances, including praise for Iowa wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos. I also like his points on Terrell Pryor (who has been a major bust this season,) and Wisconsin’s strange quarterback change (which cost me a pick last week).
