TCU senior Trevone Boykin, a finalist for the 2014 Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award, has been named the Davey O’Brien Quarterback of the Week for week four of the college football season.
Boykin amassed 527 total yards and tossed four touchdown passes in a thrilling 55-52 victory over Texas Tech Saturday. His final touchdown pass was the game winner with :23 remaining.
Boykin finished the day 34 of 54 passing for 485 yards with no interceptions. He also had 14 carries for 42 yards. The native of Dallas, Texas, has topped the 500-yard mark in total offense in each of the past two games, accounting for 10 touchdowns over that time.
Nationally this season, Boykin ranks tied for first in points responsible for (96), second in total offense (415.0 yards per game), third in passing yards (1,470) and third in passing touchdowns (14).
It is the second time in his career that Boykin has won the weekly honor, with the first coming on Oct. 28, 2014. He is the second straight winner from the Big 12 Conference, following Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield last week, and the sixth winner from the league in the last 11 weeks dating back to last season.
All 128 FBS quarterbacks are eligible for the weekly honor, which is determined by a subset of the Davey O’Brien National Selection Committee. The Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award winner will be announced on Dec. 10 during ESPN’s The Home Depot College Football Awards. The winner is not required to have won a weekly award during the season. A list of 16 semifinalists for the award will be announced on Nov. 2, while the three finalists will be named on Nov. 24.
