Elite 11 Alum of the Week
Brandon Weedon as an Elite 11 counselor this year.
Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State
The senior quarterback's decision to come back for a final year has paid off tremendously and has Cowboys fans looking for a huge reward at the end of the season. The former New York Yankees baseball prospect has the Cowboys in control of their own destiny with an eye on earning a spot in the BCS National Championship game. Weeden is also a candidate to be a Heisman finalist and a few more performances like the one he turned in against Texas Tech would only help his case. In a 66-6 destruction of Texas Tech he completed 31-of-37 passes for 423 yards and five touchdowns in three quarters of play.
