Big 12 helmet stickers: Week 8
By David Ubben
Time to hand out some hardware for a job well done this week. Your stickers are in the mail, gentlemen.
Joe Bergeron, RB, Texas: Bergeron rumbled over Baylor's defense for five touchdowns in Saturday's 56-50 win. It's his second game in three weeks with at least four scores and he led the Longhorns with 117 yards on 19 carries, including three on the final drive to milk the clock and ice the win.
J.W. Walsh, QB, Oklahoma State: Walsh started again in place of Wes Lunt and became the second freshman quarterback to throw for 400 yards this season for the Cowboys. Walsh was under control and used a steady diet of runs and passes to keep a very good Iowa State defense on its heels. He finished with 415 yards and a touchdown on 32-of-47 passing and ran for 46 yards and a score in the 31-10 win over the No. 24 Cyclones.
Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech: Doege set a school record with seven touchdown passes and hit Alex Torres for an eight-yarder to beat TCU 56-53 in triple overtime on the road on Saturday. Doege finished with 318 yards on 30-of-42 passing and hit his stride after a rough start.
Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State: Klein controlled the 55-14 win from start to finish and took advantage of a weak West Virginia defense, completing 19 of 21 passes for a career-high 323 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 41 yards and four touchdowns, his first career game with at least three touchdowns on the ground and through the air.
Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: Jones is back in a bit of a groove after that Kansas State loss. He hit on 19 of 28 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns in an easy 52-7 win over Kansas. Oklahoma ran just 51 plays, too.
