(WNFL) - Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland was named today as the Big Ten football co-defensive player-of-the-week. Borland, a senior, tied a career-high with two sacks in Saturday's 10-point Badger victory over B-Y-U. He also registered a quarterback hurry that led to a Wisconsin interception. Borland shares the weekly defensive honors with Randy Gregory of Nebraska. Also, former Green Bay athlete Peter Mortell of the University of Minnesota was honored as the top Big Ten special teams player for the second week in a row. Mortell averaged 46 yards on four punts, including a career-high 62-yarder, as the Gophers beat Penn State on Saturday. Mortell is a sophomore from Green Bay Notre Dame.
