The Big 12's media panel selected Texas quarterback Colt McCoy, Oklahoma defensive back Lendy Holmes and Kansas State kicker Brooks Rossman as the conference's players of the week. It is the third time that McCoy has been picked this season, including back-to-back weeks, and the fourth time in his career. Holmes earned his first weekly honor and Rossman was tabbed for the second time in his career.

Here's a look at the individual accomplishments of each honoree in last week's games.

Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week: Texas QB Colt McCoy, Jr., Tuscola, Texas

Set a school record by completing 90.6 percent of his passes in leading No. 1 Texas to a 56-31 triumph over Missouri. McCoy was 29-of-32 for 337 passing yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 23 yards and a pair of touchdowns. McCoy led the Longhorns to touchdowns on each of their first five drives.

Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week: Oklahoma S Lendy Holmes, Sr., Dallas

Intercepted two passes, including one in the end zone to end a scoring threat, in the Sooners' 45-31 triumph over Kansas. Holmes notched eight tackles, one tackle for loss and two pass deflections. Prior to Holmes' interceptions last week, Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing had thrown just three in his previous 239 passing attempts and not more than one in any game this season.

Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week: Kansas State K Brooks Rossman, Sr., San Diego, Calif.

Nailed two field goals in the Wildcats' 14-13 loss to Colorado, including a career-long effort of 53 yards. It was the eighth-longest field goal in school history and the longest in the conference this season. Rossman is 7-of-9 on the year in field goals and 34-of-35 in point after attempts.
