Ryan Broyles (Oklahoma), Jamie Blatnick (Oklahoma State) and Raphael Guidry (Kansas State) have been named Big 12 Conference Football Players of the Week, as selected by a media panel. All three picked up their first career honor.

Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma, WR, Sr, Norman, Okla.
Ryan Broyles had 13 catches for a school-record 217 yards and two touchdowns in No. 1/3 Oklahoma's 47-17 win at Kansas. His scoring plays covered 57 and 43 yards. On the 57-yard touchdown, Broyles set two career records - the NCAA mark for receptions (317), and touchdown receptions by a Big 12 player (43). The senior ended the night with career marks of 326 catches and 44 receiving touchdowns. Broyles also had 84 yards in punt returns for an all-purpose total of 301 yards. His longest punt return went for 33 yards.

Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week
Jamie Blatnick, Oklahoma State, DE, Sr, Celina, Texas
Jamie Blatnick had a career-high nine tackles with two quarterback sacks and four tackles for loss in No. 6/7 Oklahoma State's 38-26 win over No. 22/21 Texas. He also broke up a pass. Blatnick's four TFL tied for the most by a Big 12 player this season. He has five sacks in 2011 after entering the year with eight for his career. OSU allowed 26 points against the Longhorns, but two came on a safety, seven on a kickoff return and seven more on a 15-yard drive after a turnover.

Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
Raphael Guidry, Kansas State, DT, Sr, Texas City, Texas
Defensive tackle Raphael Guidry led a K-State special teams unit that proved to be the difference in the ballgame in the No. 17/18 Cats' 41-34 win at Texas Tech. Guidry blocked two Texas Tech field goals, marking the first time since 2003 that a KSU player blocked two kicks in the same game. It was also the first time in the Bill Snyder era that one player blocked two field goals in the same contest. K-State's play on special teams led to 14 Wildcat points.
