Michigan’s Quinn Nordin, who made 4-of-6 field goals Saturday in the win over Florida, has been named Big Ten Co-Special Teams Player of the Week.

Nordin made field goals of 25, 55, 30 and 50 yards.

Nordin, a redshirt freshman, is the first kicker in Michigan history with two field goals of 50-plus yards in the same game.

Nordin finished the game with 15 points, including three extra points, most ever for a Michigan kicker in his debut.

He shared the credit via Twitter on Monday: “Thankful for my line, snapper and holder,” he wrote. “You guys made this possible.”

The other co-winner with Nordin was Maryland defensive back Antoine Brooks, who returned blocked field goal 71 yards for a TD in the win over Texas.
