GoFrogs: Peterson Honored By League

TCU soccer's Brandi Peterson was selected by the league as the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week. The honor is the third for Peterson this season and the sixth of her career.

Peterson was instrumental in TCU registering a pair of shutouts over the weekend, limiting Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to eight shots each. The Horned Frogs allowed just six shots on goal and surrendered a combined six corner kicks to the Sooners and Cowgirls. Peterson tallied two shots on goal against Oklahoma while competing through all 90 minutes and recorded 87 minutes against Oklahoma State during Sunday's match.

TCU (11-2-1) rose to No. 5 nationally by both the United Soccer Coaches Association and TopDrawerSoccer.com. The Horned Frogs hit the road for a pair of matches this week. First up is a Thursday night meeting against No. 14 West Virginia at 6 p.m. TCU will travel to Ames, Iowa for a Sunday afternoon battle against Iowa State at 1 p.m. Both games will be televised on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.

Honored previously this season were Messiah Bright (Offensive Player of the Week, Sept. 14), Gracie Brian (Offensive Player of the Week, Aug. 23), Brandi Peterson (Defensive Player of the Week, Aug. 23 and Sept. 7) and Grace Collins (Offensive Player of the Week, Sept. 7).
