Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Seth Doege, Texas Tech, QB, Jr, Wolfforth, Texas
Junior quarterback Seth Doege helped lead Texas Tech to its first win over a No. 1-ranked opponent on the road with a 41-38 victory at No. 1/3 Oklahoma. The win snapped OU's nation-leading 39-game home win streak. Doege finished the game 33-of-52 for 441 yards passing with no interceptions. He had four touchdowns through the air and another on the ground. Tech's 41 points were the most given up by OU at home since 1997. The 441 yards passing are the most by any Texas Tech quarterback against the Sooners.
Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week
Shaun Lewis, Oklahoma State, LB, So, Missouri City, Texas
Shaun Lewis had nine tackles, an interception and a fumble recovery in No. 6/6 Oklahoma State's 45-24 win at Missouri. His interception set up a touchdown and his fumble recovery stopped a Missouri drive in the red zone. OSU's defense limited the Tigers to seven second-half points.
Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
Tyler Lockett, Kansas State, WR/KR, Fr, Tulsa, Okla.
Tyler Lockett tallied 251 all-purpose yards in No. 12/12 Kansas State's 59-21 win at Kansas. He became the first player in school history to return a kickoff for a score in consecutive games following his 97-yarder to open the second half. The true freshman also registered career-highs in both receptions and yards with five catches for 110 yards and a receiving touchdown. He became the first K-State receiver this season to surpass the 100-yard barrier.
