Monatana cornerback Anthony Goodwin takes this week's Big Sky Player of the Week Award, while Montana State's Shawn Johnson wins the Big Sky Special Teams Player of the Week Award.
From the Big Sky Conference:
Goodwin, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound senior from Murrieta, Calif., intercepted two passes, had seven more pass breakups and three tackles in No. 10 Montana's 55-27 victory over Portland State. Both of Goodwin's interceptions led to Montana touchdowns. His first interception came in the first quarter. He returned it 9 yards to the Portland State 36-yard line. His second interception came in the third quarter at the Portland State 45-yard line. The seven pass deflections are the most by a player in the FCS this season.
Johnson, a 5-9, 175-pound junior from Bakersfield, Calif., returned a kick 100 yards for a touchdown in Montana State's 36-7 win over Northern Arizona. The kick return was Montana State's first for a touchdown since 2008, and just the third 100-yarder in school history. Johnson finished the game with 246 all-purpose yards. He rushed for 92 yards with a 27-yard touchdown run, and also had 54 punt return yards.
The Bobcats also moved up in The Sports Network FCS Poll to eighth, while the Griz moved down to 11th.
