Iowa sophomore punter Tory Taylor capped off a superb week with Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player of the Week honors.

The Australian helped the Hawkeyes flip the field all game against the Cyclones on Saturday, and was a huge help to the defense while the offense got going.

He finished the game averaging 51 yards per punt on eight punts. His longest was a booming 69-yarder in the third quarter. Four of those punts pinned the Cyclones inside their own 10.
