Joel Monroe, a senior kicker from Minnesota, was named co-Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in the Gophers' 16-7 win over Indiana. He is the first Gopher to win the award since Jason Giannini on Oct. 10, 2005.

Joel Monroe finished with three field goals, which were the difference in a 16-7 triumph over Indiana. After missing his first attempt due to a bad snap and hold, the senior kicker connected on a career-high three field goals to provide all of the second-half scoring.

With the score knotted at 7-7, Monroe hit field goals of 29 and 42 yards in the third quarter, the latter marking a season long. He sealed the victory with a 38-yarder with less than a minute left in the game. Monroe collects the first weekly accolade of his career.
