UNI quartertback Pat Grace has been named the Missouri Valley Conference offensive player of the week. Grace had four touchdown passes, three touchdown runs and 455 yards of a passing in a 66-7 win over South Dakota. After a heartbreaking loss at Iowa coach Mark Farley called it a much needed win.
Farley says there was a concern about the game as they needed it to put some closure on the close loss to Iowa and move forward. Farley says the most import thing is it has been a tough week to get over the Iowa loss and Farley says it’s nice to see smiles on their faces and have the win after what happened last week.
