Senior defensive tackle Garrett Brown was named co-Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week alongwith Wisconsin’s Chris Borland for his efforts in Minnesota's 42-34 win over Michigan State Saturday night.

Garrett Brown set career highs with seven defensive stops and three tackles for loss, while also forcing and recovering a fumble to help Minnesota knock off Michigan State.

The senior defensive tackle pushed the Spartans’ offense back six yards with his three tackles for loss, and six of his seven defensive stops were solo tackles. Brown led a Gophers defense that held MSU to 124 rushing yards, 84 of which came on a reverse in the second half.

The Connecticut native collects his first career weekly accolade and the third for a Minnesota defender this season after teammates Lee Campbell (Sept. 6) and Nate Triplett (Sept. 13) were honored earlier this year.
