IRVING, Texas -- The Big 12 Conference has announced TCU linebacker Travin Howard as its Defensive Player of the Week following the Horned Frogs' 62-22 win at Baylor.

Howard keyed a TCU defense that limited Baylor to 133 yards rushing after it entered the game No. 1 in the Big 12 and No. 4 nationally with an average of 299.3 per contest. The Bears were also held to 5-of-20 on third-down conversions.

Howard led TCU with 12 tackles for his sixth straight game in double figures. He also had a pass breakup and quarterback hurry. Howard has a Big 12-leading 100 stops on the season. The junior from Longview, Texas, tops the Big 12 and is fourth nationally with his average of 11.1 tackles per game.

Howard is the first Horned Frog since Martin Patterson (2003-04) with back-to-back seasons of at least 100 tackles.
