The Illini-Badger Football Conference (IBFC) recognized two Benedictine University players on its weekly awards list for games of October 13. Honored were sophomore defensive back Pat Daniels and freshman kicker Brian Goff. Daniels was named as the IBFC Defensive "Player of the Week" for the second-straight week after leading the Eagles' defense in Benedictine's first win over rival Aurora University in 14 years. Daniels had eight tackles (equalling his career high) and also had two interceptions as BU earned the win in double overtime. Goff played a huge role in the 2OT victory. His career-best 38 yard field goal provided the margin (20-17) against AU in the second overtime segment. Goff also nailed a 26 yard field goal with less than one second remaining in the first half to cut the Spartans' lead to 7-3. Goff was two-for-two on extra point kicks and was also pressed into service as the team's punter on Saturday, booting the ball 11 times and killing three punts inside the 20.
