It’s time to name our Big 12 Players of the Week as we look at the top performances on offense, defense and special teams. Yes, there are always several players to debate, but we try to make this as fair as we can, while backing up our decision with stats and facts.
Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week: Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb
Sooners WR CeeDee Lamb got off to a bit of a slow start this season, but he’s really coming on strong as of late, and that was very obvious Saturday against Texas. Lamb hauled in 10 catches for 171 yards with three touchdowns. He torched a Texas secondary that was missing several key players, but still was able to help spread and open up the field for Jalen Hurts and the OU running game.
Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week: Baylor LB Clay Johnston
Johnston was having himself a great game on Saturday against Texas Tech before he was injured and announced to miss the rest of the season. Johnston had 10 tackles, 8 solo and one interception before getting hurt in Baylor’s 33-30 double-overtime win over the Red Raiders. This was Johnston’s second time in the last two weeks he had won our Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week award.
Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week: Texas Tech K Trey Wolff
Despite the loss to Baylor, Trey Wolff accounted for a key 12 points for Texas Tech on Saturday. He was 3 for 3 on field goals and 3 for 3 on extra points. This included a 40-yard field goal in a game Tech led 6-3 at halftime. Wolff is quietly having a very nice season, going 11 for 12 on field goals so far and showing some range, hitting 3 of 4 from 40+, including a long of 45 yards.
