Texas freshman Devin Duvernay, who had a 75-yard touchdown catch against Iowa State was named the Big 12 newcomer of the week, the league office announced.
Duvernay finished the game with four catches for 96 yards. This came one week after he had a 63-yard touchdown catch against Oklahoma.
So far this season, Duvernay has nine catches for 193 yards. On Saturday, Duvernay met reporters for the first time in his UT career.
“Our destiny’s in our own hands, and we’re just continuing to get better each and every day in practice,” Duvernay said. “We believe in each other, and we’re going to keep believing.”
