A&M punter Nik Constantinou has been named the SEC Punter of the Week, the league announced Monday.

Constantinou, a native Melbourne, Australia, punted four times for 182 total yards on Saturday, averaging 45.5 yards. Most importantly, all four of Constantinou's kicks were downed inside the opponent's 20-yard line, including his long kick for the day, a 61-yarder, being downed at the 5.

Constantinou's other punts were a fair catch at the 8, out of bounds at the 13 and downed at the 9. Three of his four punts were inside the New Mexico 10.

Against Colorado the previous week, Constantinou was just as impressive, with eight kicks on the day totaling 392 yards, an average of 49.0 yards, with a long of 65.
