Groza Award Names Four Kickers as ‘Stars of the Week’

The Groza Award, given to the best kicker in college football, named four players to its ‘Stars of the Week’ after the first week of the college football season.

Oklahoma’s Gabe Brkic tied an FBS record after he kicked three field goals of fifty yards or more in a single game as the Sooners defeated Tulane, 40-35. His 56-yard kick was the school’s longest field goal since 1977. Brkic is a two-time Lou Groza Award semifinalist.

Notre Dame’s Jonathan Doerer made a 41-yard field goal to give Notre Dame a 41-38 overtime victory over Florida State. He also hit a 48-yarder and made five extra points to score 11 points.

UNLV’s Daniel Gutierrez tied a school record with four field goals against Eastern Washington. He made field goals of 22, 47, 48 and 51 yards, the last of which was a career long. Gutierrez scored the Rebels’ first 12 points of the game. He finished with 13 points.
