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 State RB Chuba Hubbard
Hubbard became the first player ever to rush for over 200 yards against a team coached by Gary Patterson. That’s an unbelievable tidbit. He had 20 carries for 223 yards for 11.2 yards per carry with two touchdowns, including one of 92 yards. Amazingly, that is only the third-highest output of the season in rushing yards. With three regular-season games a bowl game remaining, Hubbard already has 1,604 yards rushing, the eighth-best single season in Oklahoma State history.
Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week: Oklahoma State S Kolby Harvell-Peel
Harvell-Peel had himself a day with six tackles, tied for second on the team, along with two interceptions against Max Duggan, one fumble recovery, plus two passes defended. This gives him three interceptions on the season and he has passed last season’s tackle total as a freshman (52), racking up 57 so far this season.
Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week: DT Bravvion Roy
This may seem like an odd selection, but you had to be watching Baylor vs. West Virginia on Thursday night to understand the pick. With WVU down 17-14 with three minutes to play in the fourth quarter, the Mountaineers had a chance to tie the game with a field goal. A delay of game move the kick from a 43 to a 48-yard attempt by Casey Legg. Legg ended having his kick blocked by Roy which helped seal the victory for the Bears to help them remain undefeated and in first place in the Big 12 Conference.
