Chris Boswell has picked up a pair of honors as a result of his record-setting afternoon against SMU last Saturday at Rice Stadium. The junior from Keller earned his second Conference USA Special Teams Player of the Week honor and he was also named the College Football Performance Awards' National Specialist of the Week.
Boswell tied an NCAA record by kicking three field goals of 50 yards or longer, while breaking school records with five field goals in the game and 19 on the season in Rice's 36-14 win over SMU.
He converted from 56, 53 and 51 yards to become the sixth kicker in NCAA history to convert three from 50 or more in a game. His 56 yarder was his second this year from 55 or more, becoming the first player in C-USA history to have to kicks of that distance in the same season (UTEP's Jose Martinez had a 64 yarder in 2008 and a 57 yarder in 2007).
Boswell leads the nation with five field goals of 50 or more this year and 10 in his career. His 18 point afternoon allowed him to break the school single season record for kick scoring. Boswell now has 96 points, five more than Clark Fangmeier in 2008. His kickoffs held SMU to an average field position of their own 22, thanks to five touchbacks, two returns stopped at the 13 and one at the 15.
This was Boswell's second weekly honor from both C-USA and CFPA. He was also honored following his game-winning field goal over Kansas in Week Two.
