Bailey bags another weekly MVFC award

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Northern Iowa junior quarterback Aaron Bailey has been named the Missouri Valley Football Conference Co-Newcomer of the Week.

Bailey has now earned the player of the week nod from the Valley in back-to-back games, getting the selection today for his winning performance against Missouri State. The Panthers blanked the Bears on Saturday, 41-0.

For the second consecutive week, Bailey punched in four rushing touchdowns, leading UNI to its 41-0 win over Missouri State. He finished the game with 19 carries for 161 rushing yards, and 61 yards passing.

He has racked up 14 rushing touchdowns this season, just one shy of tying the school record for rushing scores in a season by a quarterback (Tirrell Rennie, 15, 2010).
