For the third time in his career, Texas kicker Cameron Dicker has been named the Big 12’s special teams player of the week.
Dicker kicked two field goals in UT’s 50-48 win over Kansas on Saturday. The second kick was made from 33 yards out with no time left. That was the Longhorns’ fifth buzzer-beating field goal since 2000.
Last year, the Big 12 honored Dicker following his performances in UT’s wins over Oklahoma and Texas Tech.

This season, Dicker has been successful of eight of the 10 field goals that he’s attempted. His 57-yard field goal against Rice is tied for the nation’s longest kick. Illinois junior James McCourt and Penn State junior Jordan Stout have also booted 57-yard field goals in 2019.
