BOWLING GREEN -- Bowling Green State University senior linebacker Dwayne Woods was named Mid-American Conference East Division defensive player of the week, the league announced today.

Woods finished with two tackles in the Falcons' 24-0 win at Massachusetts Saturday. He also had a pass breakup and an interception, which he returned 48 yards for a touchdown in BG's first shutout since Nov. 6, 2004.

BG held the Minutemen to just 118 total yards, forced four turnovers and allowed them to convert just 1-of-16 third-down attempts. UMass had 15 offensive possessions, and the Falcons forced a three-and-out or a turnover in 10 of them.
