Swenson was perfect on three field goal attempts and an extra point in a narrow 16-13 victory over Iowa . The junior kicker connected on boots of 29 and 32 yards in the second quarter and added a 25-yarder in the third period to give the Spartans a 16-3 advantage. Since missing his first field goal attempt of the season, Swenson has made his last 12 field goals, just one short of tying the school record of 13 consecutive field goals set by Paul Edinger in 1998. Swenson picks up his first career weekly honor.
