BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) - Dwayne Woods, a member of the Bowling Green State University football team, has been named Mid-American Conference East Division Defensive Player of the Week.
This comes after his efforts in a 24-0 win at the University of Massachusetts. The announcement was made by the league office Monday afternoon.
Woods finished the game with two tackles, a pass breakup and a 48-yard interception return for a touchdown in the Falcons first shutout since Nov. 6, 2004, a 52-0 win vs. Western Michigan.
BGSU held UMass to just 118 total yards, forced four turnovers and allowed the Minutemen to convert just 1-of-16 third down attempts. Of UMass' 15 drives, the Falcons forced a 3-and-out or a turnover in 10 of those possessions.
