FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU has named linebacker Marcus Mallet and women's golfer Sanna Nuutinen its Muscle Milk Athletes of the Week for their recent performances.
Mallet recorded 10 tackles in the Horned Frogs' 48-17 win against SMU. Four of those were for loss, including a four-yard sack. The junior from Cleveland, Texas, also forced a fumble. Mallet now leads TCU in tackles-for-loss on the season with five.
The Horned Frogs will look to build on their strong offensive and defensive performance Saturday when they take on Oklahoma in Norman. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. on FOX.
Nuutinen, a senior from Norway, recorded five final-round birdies to finish third overall at the Golfweek Conference Challenge in Wolcott, Colo. TCU finished third in the event. It was her highest-ranking performance since she won the 2012 Mountain West title.
TCU, currently in Chicago, will wrap up the Windy City Collegiate Classic Tuesday.
