Iowa kicker Keith Duncan was named the Big Ten special teams player of the week on Monday.

Duncan had four field goals in Saturday's 19-10 win over Illinois at Kinnick Stadium.

It was the third Big Ten weekly award for Duncan, a Weddington, N.C. native. He was honored for his four field-goal game against Iowa State earlier this season, and in 2016 when he kicked the game-winning field goal against Michigan.

Duncan connected on field goals of 23, 45, 24 and 29 yards on Saturday. He has 27 field goals this season, a new Big Ten and school single-season record.

Duncan had six field-goal attempts on Saturday, the most of his career.

Duncan is 27-of-32 on field-goal attempts and 12-of-16 on field goals of 40 or more yards. Duncan’s 36 career made field goals are the sixth-most all-time in program history.
