SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

First-year cornerback Desmond King and sophomore tight end Jake Duzey received recognition following their performances in Iowa’s 34-24 loss to Ohio State on Oct. 19.

King was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week, and Duzey earned the honorable mention Tight End of the Week from the College Football Performance Awards.

King, a native of Detroit, recorded a career-high 12 tackles against the Buckeyes, and he is the first Iowa player to receive the conference’s Freshman of the Week award.

Duzey was Iowa’s leading receiver against Ohio State, hauling in 6 catches for 138 yards and a score. The Troy, Mich., native’s touchdown — an 85-yard catch and run from quarterback Jake Rudock — was the first of the sophomore’s college career.

King is listed as the starter opposite B.J. Lowery on the Iowa depth chart for this week’s game against Northwestern (4-3, 0-3 Big Ten).

Duzey and Ray Hamilton are listed as co-backups of senior tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, but Duzey’s breakout game against the Buckeyes could persuade the Iowa coaching staff to increase his involvement in the passing game.
