Freshman running back Devin Neal was named Co-Big 12 Newcomer of the Week in recognition of his 100 rushing yards and two touchdowns Oct. 23 against No. 2 Oklahoma.

Women’s golf recorded nothing higher than a bogey in the Oct. 8-10 Moore Intercollegiate in Denver. “It’s incredible to have a completely clean scorecard,” said first-year coach Lindsay Kuhle. Senior Lauren Heinlein shot a final-round 69 to finish tied for seventh, her second top-10 finish of the fall season.
