Montana State Senior Linebacker Jody Owens has been named the Big Sky Conference Defensive Player of the week after the Bobcat's 24-17 win over Southern Utah on Saturday.
The Mesquite, TX native finished with a team-high 13 tackles, 11 of them solo, a forced fumble, and a sack. Owens led the Bobcat defense to limit the Southern Utah running game to just 69 total yards. The 2012 pre-season Conference Defensive Player of the Year, and pre-season All American, has never won the weekly award before.
