San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny was the offensive player that received the honors this week.
Seven of Edwards’ tackles were solo stops and he also tallied a sack in the game. He was credited with one defended pass and a quarterback hurry, as well.
Edwards is Wisconsin’s second-leading tackler this season, recording 60 stops and 8.5 tackles for loss. He’s also been credited with six pass break-ups for the year. Saturday’s 11-tackle performance was the first time in 2017 that Edwards racked up a double-digit tally.
Thanks to Edwards’ contributions, the Badgers are 11-0 heading into the final week of the season. They will travel to Minneapolis to play Minnesota next Saturday.
