Iowa junior kicker Mike Meyer received his third career Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week honor from the conference Monday. It’s also the second such accolade the Dubuque native has earned this season alone.

Meyer is coming off his second four-field goal performance of the year after making kicks from 23, 28, 27 and 42 yards in Iowa’s 19-16 double overtime win over Michigan State on Oct. 13 in East Lansing, Mich. The 27-yarder came in the first overtime to tie the game at 16-16, while the 42-yard kick gave the Hawkeyes their only lead of the day.

His first four-field goal game came in Iowa’s season opener, an 18-17 victory over Northern Illinois in Chicago back on Sept. 1. Meyer was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week following that game and received the honor for the first time in his career back in 2010 after a game where Iowa defeated Indiana, 18-13.
