K-State, TCU earn Big 12 weekly awards
By David Ubben
The Big 12 has named its players of the week, as voted on by a media panel:
Josh Boyce, WR, TCU: Boyce caught six passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 39-38 road win against West Virginia in double overtime. He tied the game with 1:28 to play with a 94-yard touchdown catch and his other score came from 31 yards out. His 94-yard catch was the third-longest play in school history and his 180 yards were the sixth-best single-game total in TCU history.
Allen Chapman, CB, Kansas State: Chapman intercepted three passes and returned one 29 yards for a touchdown just before halftime in K-State's 44-30 win over Oklahoma State. His final interception of the night came in the end zone and sealed the victory. He also broke up two more passes and made five tackles. Only six other players in college football have three interceptions in one game this season and no K-State player had done it since 1995. He earned the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week award for his efforts, too.
Tyler Lockett, KR, Kansas State: Lockett returned a kick 100 yards for a score in the second quarter and added a 27-yard return as well in K-State's win over Oklahoma State. It was his second of the season and fourth career touchdown return, tied for fourth in Big 12 history.
