After a big win against TCU on Saturday, three Oklahoma State players were given Conference player-of-the-week honors. Granted, just six of the conference’s 10 teams were in action, it is impressive nonetheless. The only non-Cowboy to win a weekly award was Baylor’s Bravvion Roy, who was named Special Teams POTW.
Totaling 223 yards and two scores on just 20 carries, Chuba Hubbard was named Big 12 Offensive POTW for the third time this season. Hubbard became the first back to run for more than 200 yards against a Gary Patterson defense... ever. Pretty impressive for Stillwater’s favorite Canadian, but that might say more about G-Pat than anything. Running for 200 yards against TCU is no joke.

With a fumble recovery, two interceptions and six tackles, Kolby Harvell-Peel had his best game in what has been an impressive season for the sophomore. Harvell-Peel may be the best player on defense for the Cowboys and he made that case even stronger against TCU. It’s the second Defensive POTW honor for him this season.

Finally, with 158 yards through the air and 88 more on the ground, Spencer Sanders took home Newcomer of the Week. Sanders finished 9-of-15 passing with one interception in a game where he looked much improved from previous weeks. He found a way to be effective with his feet while also securing the ball. He finished as the second leading rusher in the game behind Hubbard’s 223-yard effort, outrushing TCU’s top rusher, Max Duggan, who finished with 86 yards.
