RENO, Nev. (10-30-15) — University of Nevada senior defensive end IAN SEAU, a Grossmont College product, has been named the Mountain West Conference Defensive Player of the Week.


Seau tallied a careers-high four sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery in the Wolf Pack’s 30-20 win over Hawai’i. His four sacks were a half sack shy of a program record and an MWC record. Seau became the ninth player in MWC history to record four sacks in a game, which is tied for the FBS lead this season along with Texas A&M’s Daeshon Hall and East Carolina’s Montese Overton.
Seau forced and recovered a fumble on his final sack of the game with 1:22 remaining, clinching a Wolf Pack victory. Seau’s four sacks totaled 30 yards as he helped Nevada limit Hawai’i to just 34 yards rushing, which is the fewest Nevada has allowed since Nov. 8, 2009.
