Brunner Named MAC Scholar-Athlete of the Week
It was the Chippewas' first win over a Big Ten opponent since 1992. Brunner's 35 completions is tied for the second-highest single-game total in school history.
Each of his four touchdown passes tied the score after Indiana had taken four separate seven-point leads in the game. His yardage total is the highest in any game for any MAC quarterback in 2008 and is the highest by any quarterback against any Big Ten team this season.
Brunner was named Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts and was one of four nationwide nominees for the AT&T All-America Player of the Week award.
The MAC Scholar Athlete of the Week honor is presented to a MAC male and female student-athlete who has a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and performs well during that week's competition. The winners are selected by a group of the conference's faculty athletic representatives.
The senior carries a 3.89 grade point average as a journalism major.
CMU returns to action Wednesday, Nov. 12 at Northern Illinois. ESPN2 will televise the contest, set for a 7 p.m. Central Time kickoff.
