MADISON – University of Wisconsin cornerback Natrell Jamerson was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in Wisconsin’s 33-24 win over Northwestern last weekend, the Big Ten announced Monday.
Jamerson, an Ocala, FL native, had two interceptions on the day, including a 36-yard touchdown return on his second one. He also totaled six tackles, a half sack, and a pass defended on the day.
Another big play made by Jamerson was when he downed a punt at Northwestern’s 2-yard line with 1:09 remaining in the game. That play set the stage for D’Cota Dixon’s game-clinching safety to make the score 33-24.
Wisconsin heads to Nebraska this Saturday to take on the Cornhuskers in Big Ten West play.
