Auburn’s Lambert picked up steam at Northern Iowa

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Alfonzo Lambert, the 2015 NIC-10 football defensive MVP for Auburn, earned more downs as the season went on at Northern Iowa.

Lambert is a redshirt sophomore linebacker for the Panthers. He recorded 38 tackles for Northern Iowa, including a career-high 12 against Missouri State on Nov. 17 to end the regular season and another six, including his first college sack, on Nov. 24 against Lamar University in the first round of the NCAA Division I FCS playoffs.

Lambert, though, was hurt early in the second half against Lamar and did not play in Northern Iowa’s season-ending 23-16 loss to UC Davis on Saturday.

Lambert now has 51 tackles in two college seasons.
