Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Lache Seastrunk, Baylor, RB, Jr, Temple, Texas
Lache Seastrunk ran 15 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns in Baylor’s 73-42 win over West Virginia. He averaged 11.5 yards per carry in a half of action as he did not play in the second period. It was Seastrunk’s ninth-career 100-yard rushing game and his eighth-consecutive – the nation’s longest active streak. The junior tallied an 80-yard TD in the first quarter, tying for the fourth-longest rush in program history. His 172 rushing yards were the 15th-most in program history as he now owns three of the top-15 single-game rushing totals at Baylor. Seastrunk leads the Big 12 with 147.2 yards per game on the ground and is second nationally.
