Knott named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

Iowa State’s senior linebacker Jake Knott just picked up his first hardware of 2012. 

After recording six tackles and a game-clinching interception in Saturday’s 9-6 win over Iowa, Knott has been named the Big 12’s Defensive Player of the Week. Knott and the Cyclones held Iowa’s rushing attack to only 68 yards on 28 attempts.
