Junior safety Jacob Huff has been named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week after his performance against Middle Tennessee State on Saturday.

The Gophers were 34-3 victors over the Blue Raiders, and Huff played a critical role. His 67-yard interception return for a touchdown in the second quarter helped put the game out of reach when the offense was struggling to find the end zone. Huff also recorded four tackles, one tackle for loss, and one pass breakup against Middle Tennessee State.
