TCU’s Josh Doctson along with Oklahoma State teammates Emmanuel Ogbah and Ben Grogan were chosen Big 12 Football Players of the Week by a panel of media that covers the Conference. All three of this week’s honorees picked up their second career award and first of the season.
Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Josh Doctson, TCU, WR, Sr, Mansfield, Texas
Wide receiver Josh Doctson tied the TCU and Big 12 single-game records with 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns in the Horned Frogs’ 55-52 win at Texas Tech. The 18 catches are the most by an FBS player this season and only three others have achieved the feat since 2013. It tied the Big 12 mark set in 1996 and the TCU record set in 1990. The 267 receiving yards broke the TCU single-game mark of 226 set in 2008. Doctson’s three touchdown catches give him 21 in his career to rank second on the Horned Frogs’ all-time list behind only Josh Boyce with 22. The senior became the first Horned Frog with at least 10 receptions in a game since Trevone Boykin had 11 catches against West Virginia in 2013. He was also honored as Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week.
Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week
Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State, DE, Jr, Houston, Texas
Defensive end Emmanual Ogbah posted six tackles, two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss in Oklahoma State’s 30-27 win at Texas. Ogbah had a sack early in the game, then assisted on two during Texas’ last offensive drive to force a punt that set up the Cowboys’ winning field goal as OSU became the first team in history to beat Texas on four consecutive trips to DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium. Ogbah has 19 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and six quarterback hurries in four games this season.
Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
Ben Grogan, Oklahoma State, PK, Jr, Arlington, Texas
Ben Grogan connected on two field goals in the game’s final 1:33 to first tie and then win the game for Oklahoma State at Texas. Grogan also knocked in a 34-yarder earlier in the game. His game-tying field goal came from 41 yards out and his game-winner was from 40. When his three successful PATs are added in, the junior scored 12 of OSU’s 30 points. Grogan has converted on eight of 10 field goals this season and is three of four from beyond 40 yards.
