Chris Philpott has been named the Big East's Special Teams Player of the Week, making him the first Cardinal to earn a POW nod this season.
Philpott bounced back from a rough performance against Cincinnati by drilling four field goals of 24, 26, 39 and 42 yards, respectively. The performance matched the school record for trifectas in a game held by Nate Smith and Art Carmody.
He also made a lot of girls wearing his jersey very proud.
In addition to Philpottomatic's recognition, freshman safety Hakeem Smith was named to the league's weekly honor roll.
