Nick Florence (Baylor), Matt O’Hanlon (Nebraska) and Cyrus Gray (Texas A&M) have been named Big 12 Conference Football Players of the Week as selected by a media panel. Florence (offense) and O’Hanlon (defense) were honored for the first time while Gray (special teams) picked up his second career award.

BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Nick Florence, Baylor, QB, Fr, Garland, Texas
Nick Florence set a school record with 427 passing yards, completing 32-of-43 attempts with no interceptions in Baylor’s 40-32 win at Missouri. He threw a career-high three touchdowns and also scored on the ground. With the win, the Bears ended an 11-game Big 12 road losing streak, dating back to a triple-overtime victory on Oct. 7, 2006 at Colorado.  It was also the first time Baylor overcame a second-half deficit to win since Oct. 21, 2006.

BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Matt O’Hanlon, Nebraska, S, Sr, Bellevue, Neb.
Matt O’Hanlon tied the school-record with three interceptions, made 12 tackles and broke up a pass in Nebraska’s 10-3 win over No. 19/20 Oklahoma. He became the fourth Cornhusker to pick off three passes in a game, with all coming in the second half. His first interception set up a Nebraska field goal that gave the Huskers a 10-3 third quarter lead while the final one ended Oklahoma’s last scoring opportunity to seal the win. His 12 tackles were a career-high and included nine solo stops. NU’s five total interceptions were its most in six seasons and the most take-aways in 70 games.

BIG 12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Cyrus Gray, Texas A&M, RB/KR, So, DeSoto, Texas
Cyrus Gray totaled 181 yards on four kick returns in Texas A&M’s one-point loss at Colorado. He had a career-best 99-yarder that went for a touchdown in the second quarter and added a 45-yard return in the fourth quarter that set up A&M’s final score. In addition he rushed for 41 yards.
