Andy Brodell is your Big Ten special teams player of the week

Sometimes, these picks make sense. Edds not getting it week 1, didn’t make it. Klug getting it week 2, was from left field.

This one makes sense.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

Andy Brodell, Iowa, SR, PR, Ankeny, Iowa/Ankeny

With Iowa clinging to a 10-3 lead over in-state rival Iowa State, Brodell put the game away with an 81-yard punt return touchdown with just over six minutes left in the game. The senior wide receiver recorded his first punt return score and established a new career best, surpassing his 78-yard punt return against Syracuse last season. Brodell is the first Hawkeye to return a punt for a touchdown since Jovon Johnson went 90 yards against Ball State in 2005. Brodell added two receptions against the Cyclones as Iowa reclaimed the Cy-Hawk Trophy. This marks the first weekly honor of Brodell’s career.
