Joel Monroe finished with three field goals, which were the difference in a 16-7 triumph over Indiana. After missing his first attempt due to a bad snap and hold, the senior kicker connected on a career-high three field goals to provide all of the second-half scoring.
With the score knotted at 7-7, Monroe hit field goals of 29 and 42 yards in the third quarter, the latter marking a season long. He sealed the victory with a 38-yarder with less than a minute left in the game. Monroe collects the first weekly accolade of his career.
