Davidson, N.C. - Junior Erik Mersereau (Port Washington, Wis.) earned a national weekly honor on Monday after College Football Performance Awards named him its punt returner performer of the week.

Mersereau ran back a punt 79 yards for a score against Idaho to give UND its first lead over a FBS opponent in program history at 7-3 in the second quarter. His 79-yard punt return was the third longest in UND history and fifth longest in Great West Conference history.

The reserve safety also had four solo stops on defense and a pass breakup.

The Sioux will play their second straight WAC opponent this Saturday when they travel to Fresno State to take on the Bulldogs at 9 p.m. CT.
