Linebacker Johnny Hodges and wide receiver Derius Davis earned Big 12 weekly honors for their performances during TCU’s 34-24 win over Texas Tech.

Davis was recognized as the Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week for his electric 82-yard punt return touchdown. Davis’ score put the Frogs ahead 7-0 and marked his fifth punt return touchdown of his career, most all-time in TCU’s program history. In total, Davis has six special-teams touchdowns in his career, good for most in program history.

Hodges was named Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the Week after leading the Frogs with eight tackles. The transfer from Navy leads the team in tackles this season with 55.

TCU moved to 9-0 with the win. The Frogs head to Austin this week to face off with Texas at 6:30 p.m. ESPN’s College GameDay will be present, and the game will be televised on ABC.
