I went to bed early last night, so I didn't see the e-mail until this morning.

Gophers linebacker Lee Campbell, who had a career-high 13 tackles, 11 solo, was named the Big Ten's defensive player of the week. He had three of those tackles in overtime, including a key tackle of Delone Carter on second and four that forced the pass attempt that Nate Triplett intercepted.

Eric Ellestad, playing in his first college game, made three of four field goal attempts, including the game-tying kick in the final minute of regulation and the game-winner in overtime.


That's about it. Have a good day.
