Shinn on game day: Sooners may be due an offensive player of the week

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The strangest oddity of this season has been Oklahoma’s inability to get a player named the Big 12’s offensive player of the week. The Sooners averaging 485.56 yards per game and 39.78 points, but they haven’t had an individual player singled out.

A current trends points to that ending when the award is announced on Monday.  

OU faces West Virginia at 6 p.m. today at Milan Puskar Stadium. The Big 12 Conference offensive player of the week award has gone to a player that went up against the West Virginia defense the four of the last five weeks.

Oklahoma State wide receiver Josh Stewart claimed the prize after catching 13 passes for 172 yards and scoring two touchdowns  touchdowns in the Cowboys 55-34 victory over the Mountaineers last Saturday

TCU wide receiver Josh Boyce was the recipient after totaling six catches for 180 yards receiving yards and two touchdowns in the Horned Frogs 39-38 overtime victory on Nov. 3.

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was the winner after he threw for 323 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for four more in the Wildcats 55-14 rout of West Virginia on Oct. 20.

Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege started run when he threw for 499 yards and six touchdowns in the Red Raiders’ 49-14 romp over the Mountaineers on Oct. 13.

The last time the Big 12 didn’t honor a player who’d just gone against West Virginia was after the games on Oct. 27. The Mountaineers didn’t play that week.
