Pitt kicker Conor Lee was named Big East special teams player of the week for his performance in the Panthers’ 36-33 quadruple-overtime victory at Notre Dame this past Saturday.
Lee converted a school-record five field goals, including a 22-yarder for his first career game winner. He also made kicks from 35, 22, 32 and 26 yards, including one in each overtime period, as well as three point-after tries for a school-record 18 points.
Lee also received Big East honors after the Syracuse game, when he kicked four field goals in a 34-24 victory over the Orange.
Pitt tailback LeSean McCoy, who rushed for a game-high 169 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries, and linebacker Scott McKillop, who led the Panthers with 15 tackles and two tackles for loss, received honorable mentions.
