After an big victory over the Houston Cougars in just his second career start, true freshman Alan Bowman has found himself already earning some recognition around the Big 12. On Monday the conference announced that Bowman had been awarded the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for week number 3.

Bowman finished 43 of 59 through the air for 605 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Red Raiders 63 to 49 victory over Houston. Being the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week wasn't the only accolade that Bowman would notch for his impressive performance. He was also named the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Player of the Week on Tuesday.

The Red Raiders are going to need another fantastic performance from Bowman as they begin conference play with the Oklahoma State Sooners this Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. The 1340 The Fan Countdown to Kickoff show starts that day at 3 p.m. Listen with the free 1340 The Fan app, online at our website or on the air at 1340 AM.
