Pitt kicker Conor Lee, who made three field goals in Saturday’s 24-17 victory over No. 23 Cincinnati, was named Big East Conference Special Teams Player of the Week.
A redshirt junior from Upper St. Clair, Lee converted field goals of 41, 25 and 37 yards against Cincinnati, and also made a point-after kick to tie his career high of 10 points. Lee also extended his school-record consecutive PAT streak to 66.
Lee is 19 of 19 on PATs and 10 of 11 on field goals this season.
Two other Pitt players drew honorable mentions: junior tailback LaRod Stephens-Howling, who rushed for 100 yards on 13 carries and scored the game-winning touchdown against Cincinnati; and Pitt redshirt junior middle linebacker Scott McKillop, who had 16 tackles.
