For the complete lack of chill surrounding Kenny Hill’s performance on Saturday, the Big 12 thought he did pretty well. Hill received Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week honors in his first start for the Horned Frogs.

Hill threw for 439 yards and two touchdowns (and two interceptions). He also ran for 45 yards and three touchdowns. Watch all five of his touchdowns right here.

Hill struggled a bit as the game got underway, throwing two interceptions in the first half, but in all, he had a successful first appearance as a Horned Frog. He wasn’t the only Frog to receive conference honors this week, as he was joined by sophomore KaVontae Turpin.

Turpin received Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week for this punt return against South Dakota State.

Turpin finished the game with 177 all-purpose yards, flashing his ability in all three phases of the game.
