Northern Illinois senior defensive end Jake Coffman earned Mid-American Conference West Division Player of the Week Monday for his work in Friday's 71-3 win at Eastern Michigan.
Coffman had five solo tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss and a forced fumble as the Huskies won their ninth straight game. It's the 10th week in a row a player from Northern has claimed one of the MAC West honors given for offense, defense or special teams each week.
It's the second time Coffman, a finalist for the Lowes Senior CLASS Award, has received the honor.
Northern's defense held Eastern Michigan to 160 yards of total offense on 64 plays, including a season-low 11 passing yards.
The Huskies play MAC East champ Miami Friday at 6 p.m. at Detroit's Ford Field in the league championship game on ESPN2.
