WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- University of Michigan football senior/junior kicker Brendan Gibbons (West Palm Beach, Fla./Cardinal Newman) was named today (Monday, Nov. 5) by the Palm Beach County Sports Commission as one of 20 semifinalists for the 2012 Lou Groza Collegiate Place-Kicker Award.

Gibbons has hit 13-of-15 field goals (86.7 percent) and 30-of-30 point-after attempts in 2012, while he has connected on 27-of-37 field goals (73.0 percent) and 97-of-99 PATs for his career. He has been successful on 10 consecutive field goal attempts this season, ranking as the second-longest streak in Michigan history behind Remy Hamilton's 14 straight in 1996. Gibbons ranks seventh in U-M history in field goals made, and his streak of 82 consecutive successful PATs ranks second best behind J.D. Carlson's 126 consecutive.

Earlier this season, Gibbons hit a career-best 52-yard field goal at Nebraska, the sixth-longest field goal in U-M history. Gibbons also was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week for his three-field goal performance against Michigan State, which included a 38-yard game-winner with five seconds remaining.

Michigan (6-3, 4-1 Big Ten) will host Northwestern (7-2, 3-2 Big Ten) on Saturday (Nov. 10) at Michigan Stadium. Kickoff is set for 12:01 p.m., and the game will be televised by ESPN.
