Across the Big 12, Texas' Bijan Robinson earned the weekly offensive honor after rushing for 216 yards and two scores on 35 carries in the Longhorns' 32-27 win over TCU.

Teammate Cameron Dicker earned a share of the special teams honor after accounting for 14 points on four field goals and a pair of extra points. His fellow co-special teamer of the week was Texas Tech kicker Jonathan Garibay, whose third field goal against West Virginia vaulted the Red Raiders to a 23-20 win.

Texas Tech's Colin Schooler recorded 15 tackles and a forced fumble in the win, and was named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts.
