No, you're not experiencing déjà vu: Keith Duncan really did get named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week -- again.
It's the second straight week that Duncan has been honored by the league office as the best special teams performer, as well as the third time he's been so honored this week and the the fourth time he's been honored over the course of his Iowa career. I thought Ihmir Smith-Marsette had a good chance to win Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week honors this week, actually, after his 95-yard kick return touchdown, but it's hard to deny a game-winning field goal.
Duncan "only" attempted two field goals on Friday -- he attempted three or more field goals in 8 of Iowa's 12 games this season -- but he drained them both. They came with a high degree of difficulty too: a 49-yarder in the second quarter and the game-winning 48-yarder in the fourth quarter in wet and windy conditions. Did that faze our man Keith?
Did Scott Frost attempting to ice him by calling back-to-back timeouts faze our man Keith?
Keith Duncan beat the #2 ranked team in the country, Frosty. He beats 5-6 teams in his sleep. Let's watch it again:
