The Big 12 has named its players of the week for Week 2, as voted on by a media panel.

OFFENSE: Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State: Klein completed 9-of-11 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 52-13 win over Miami. He also ran for three touchdowns and 71 yards on 22 carries. That was the 10th multi-touchdown game of Klein's career, according to the Big 12.

DEFENSE: Jake Knott, LB, Iowa State: Knott finished with six tackles and helped Iowa State hold Iowa to just 68 yards on 28 rushing attempts in the Cyclones' 9-6 Cy-Hawk rivalry win. Knott earned the league's best play of the weekend, intercepting Iowa's James Vandenberg with 1:11 remaining and the Hawkeyes driving in Iowa State territory to seal the victory.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Deante' Gray, PR, TCU: Gray gave TCU a special moment in its grand opening of the rebuilt Amon G. Carter Stadium, returning a punt 70 yards for a touchdown the first time a Horned Frog had possession of the ball in the new stadium. He finished with 160 yards on five punt returns, a TCU single-game record. He added a 61-yard return in the second half.
