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 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.
The TCU defense forced that turnover so fast we didn't get to share in #TurpinTime together...Enjoy! #BeatSDSU pic.twitter.com/7TA3Y0Zn7w— TCU Football (@TCUFootball) September 4, 2016
Turpin finished the game with 177 all-purpose yards, flashing his ability in all three phases of the game.
