Iowa junior kicker Mike Meyer was named co-Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week along with Northwestern’s Venric Mark, the Big Ten announced Monday.

Meyer was a key part of the Hawkeyes’ 18-17 win over Northern Illinois on Sept. 1 in Chicago, connecting of 4-of-5 field goal attempts and also recording three touchbacks on kickoff. One of Meyer’s made field goals came from 50 yards out in the fourth quarter, igniting an Iowa comeback.

This is the second time in his career Meyer has earned this accolade from the conference. In 2010, the Dubuque native received the weekly honor as a true freshman following an 18-13 win over Indiana in which, coincidentally, he made 4-of-5 field goal attempts.
