K-State senior quarterback Collin Klein has been named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week following his performance in the Wildcats' 55-14 win at West Virginia.

Klein accounted for seven touchdowns (4 rushing, 3 passing) and completed 19-of-21 passes for a career-high 323 yards to lead the Wildcats to their school-record fourth straight road win over a ranked opponent.

With his four rushing touchdowns on Saturday, Klein also broke the NCAA FBS record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in two consecutive seasons with 41, while his 47 career rushing touchdowns are a new K-State record, surpassing Darren Sproles' 45.

Klein, who ranks in the top 10 of 11 Kansas State career categories, has passed for 1,397 yards and 10 touchdowns on 98-of-139 aim this season, while he has rushed for 14 scores and 551 yards on 110 carries. His pass efficiency rating of 175.79 leads the Big 12 and ranks second nationally, and Klein is the only BCS quarterback with at least 14 rushing touchdowns and 10 passing touchdowns this year.

Kansas State returns to action this Saturday when they host Big 12 conference mate Texas Tech.
