Coyle, a 6-2, 245-pound senior from Bozeman, Mont., tallied 15 tackles and the game-clinching interception in Montana's 21-14 overtime win over Cal Poly. Coyle had two tackles for loss and helped the Grizzly defense keep the Mustangs off the board in the second half and overtime. In overtime, Coyle intercepted Cal Poly quarterback Dano Graves' third-down pass at the 2-yard line to secure the victory. This is Coyle's second career Player of the Week honor.
