Clint Chelf (Oklahoma State), Ryan Mueller (K-State) and Josh Lambert (West Virginia) were named Big 12 Football Players of the Week by a panel of media that cover the Conference. Each was recognized for the first time.
Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Clint Chelf, Oklahoma State, QB, Sr, Enid, Okla.
Clint Chelf was responsible for four touchdowns in the Cowboys’ 52-34 win at No. 15 Texas Tech. His 67-yard TD run in the third quarter was the longest for an OSU quarterback since Brent Blackman had a 72-yarder in 1972. Chelf completed 18-of-34 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns and carried six times for 88 yards with two scores. His 93.4 adjusted QBR against Texas Tech led Big 12 quarterback and was the seventh-best mark in the country last week.
Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week
Ryan Mueller, K-State, DE, Jr, Leawood, Kan.
Ryan Mueller finished with seven tackles, including two TFL and one sack in K-State’s win over Iowa State. The defensive end took over the Big 12 lead in QB sacks with seven on the season. He has recorded at least a half TFL in all eight games and sacks in six games, including the last four contests. The K-State defense held Iowa State to 249 total yards and a Cyclone score following a turnover.
Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
