The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletics Communications:
AMES, Iowa – Iowa State linebacker Colby Reeder has been named the Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the week, along with Oklahoma QB Dillon Gabriel, the league office announced Monday.
Reeder stuffed the stat sheet in his second start as a Cyclone, registering four tackles, including three solo, in a 10-7 Iowa State victory over Iowa Saturday.
