Gophers kicker Emmit Carpenter was named Big Ten Special Teams Player of the Week on Monday after making all four of his field goal attempts at Penn State.

Carpenter hit from 37 yards to give the Gophers a three-point lead with less than one minute remaining in regulation and a 46-yarder on the first possession of overtime.

He is 9-for-9 on the season, with five of those kicks going at least 40 yards.
