KSU, TCU earn Big 12 weekly player honors

By David Ubben

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

OFFENSE: Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State

Klein threw for a career-high 323 yards on 19-of-21 passing to give K-State its fourth consecutive road win over a ranked opponent. He also rushed for four touchdowns and 41 yards, setting the NCAA FBS record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in two seasons, with 41. His 47 touchdowns broke Darren Sproles' school record of 45, too. He was the Walter Camp National Player of the Week.

DEFENSE: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State

Brown became the first defender to intercept West Virginia QB Geno Smith, and did it on a tipped ball in Saturday's win. He had two tackles for loss and finished with eight stops. It was his first interception since sealing a win over Baylor in 2011 and becoming the first defender to intercept Heisman winner Robert Griffin III.

SPECIAL TEAMS: Jaden Oberkrom, K, TCU

Oberkrom drilled all six of his field goal attempts to set the school and Big 12 records in TCU's 56-53 loss to Texas Tech. He made all five extra points and his six kicks were from 32, 41, 32, 45, 42 and 38 yards. The 42-yarder tied the game in the final minute to force overtime, too. His 23 points were a school and Big 12 record for kickers, too.  berkrom missed his first kick of the year but is 14-of-15 since.
