Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week
Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State, QB, Sr, Edmond, OKla.
Brandon Weeden set a school record by passing for 502 yards in the No. 3 Cowboys' 52-45 win over No. 14 Kansas State.

Weeden engineered three crucial scoring drives in the decisive fourth quarter by completing 6-of-8 passes for 111 yards and a touchdown in the final stanza.

Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week
Ronnell Lewis, Oklahoma, DE, Jr, Dewar, Okla.
Ronnell Lewis was dominant on the defensive side of the ball in No. 6 Oklahoma's win over Texas A&M. He had a team-high nine tackles, two tackles for loss (-8 yards), one pass break-up and one interception, which he returned 11 yards.  The junior defensive end's interception set up the Sooners at the A&M 28, and the OU offense then drove in for the touchdown. Oklahoma led 41-10 after three quarters and won 41-25.

Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
Tyler Lockett, Kansas State, WR/KR, Fr, Tulsa, Okla.
