Eric Decker, a junior wide receiver, was named GoldenSports.net/Outback Steakhouse's Gopher Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in their season-opening 31-27 victory over Northern Illinois. Decker was named GoldenSports.net/Outback Steakhouse's Gopher Offensive Player of the Week twice last season.

Eric Decker finished with 10 receptions and 89 receiving yards against Northern Illinois with one touchdown. His 8-yard reception for a score capped off an 18-play, 90-yard drive to put the Gophers up 7-0. Decker had six catches for 42 yards in the drive.

Decker was also the hero as a defensive back in the game's final play as Northern Illinois attempted a Hail Mary pass, only to have Decker knocked the ball to the ground. Decker currently is tied for sixth in the NCAA with his 10 receptions.

There are eleven Outback Steakhouse locations in Minnesota: Bloomington, Burnsville, Coon Rapids, Eden Prairie, Hermantown, Inver Grove Heights, Maplewood, Rochester, Roseville, St. Cloud and Woodbury.
