Players of the Week: OU, Tech, OSU, MU
By ESPN.com staff
The Big 12 has named its players of the week. Here's who took home the awards.
Henry Josey, RB, Missouri
Josey carried the ball 14 times for 263 yards and three touchdowns in only two quarters of play in a 69-0 win over Western Illinois. That's an average of 18.79 yards a carry. He didn't play in the second half, but he needed 57 more yards to break the single-game school rushing record. It was the fourth-highest total in school history and the most in the NCAA this year.
Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech
Doege completed 90.9 percent (40-of-44) of his passes to break an NCAA record previously held by Tech QB Kliff Kingsbury. He threw for 401 yards and five scores and completed his first 15 passes of the day, tying a school record.
Javon Harris, S, Oklahoma
Harris intercepted two passes and returned the first one 69 yards to set up an Oklahoma field goal. The second all but sealed the game for the Sooners. He had three tackles and a pass broken up.
Justin Gilbert, CB/KR, Oklahoma State
Gilbert returned a kickoff 96 yards for a score and also intercepted a pass, returning it 24 yards. His touchdown return was the third of his career in just 16 career games.
