Texas Tech's Keke Coutee racked up his second Big 12 weekly honor Monday.

The Lufkin native finished with nine catches for 168 yards to help the Red Raiders earn a 27-23 come-from-behind road victory against Texas.

Coutee was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week after recording 168 receiving yards during the Red Raiders' game on Friday, Nov. 24.

In the first quarter against Texas, Coutee had 104 receiving yards with 77 of them coming from the first scoring drive for Tech that ended with 3:20 left in the quarter, according to the release.

Coutee added another big play later in the game as he was on the receiving end of a 52-yard strike from Nic Shimonek that set up a T.J. Vasher touchdown pass seconds later. Coutee caught the first three passes of that drive, resulting in 12, 22 and 41 yards each before McLane Carter snuck into the end zone on a one-yard touchdown run.

Coutee pushed his receiving yards total to 1,242 - good for sixth all time in program history.

Coutee ranks sixth in the nation for receiving yards, seventh in receiving yards per game, ninth in receptions per game and 19th in receiving touchdowns, according to the release.

He is the first Red Raider to earn multiple Big 12 weekly awards this season, according to the release.

Coutee and the Red Raiders now await their bowl destination, which will be announced Sunday afternoon following the final unveiling of the College Football Playoff rankings.
