Kansas State senior safety Drake Cheatum was named co-Big 12 Newcomer of the Week Monday following the Wildcats’ 31-3 victory at Baylor on Saturday.

The weekly conference honor is the first for the Prairie View A&M transfer and the ninth this season for No. 19 K-State, the most in a season since 2012 when the Wildcats also earned nine.
