OSU notebook: Cowboys racking up national awards

by Gina Mizell Published: September 26, 2011

Brandon Weeden has been heavily rewarded for his record-breaking performance Saturday in Oklahoma State's 30-29 comeback victory at Texas A&M.

The Cowboy quarterback was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week and Davey O'Brien National Quarterback of the Week Monday. On Sunday, Weeden was named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week, a Manning Star of the Week and the Rivals.com National Player of the Week.

Weeden is also nominated for the Capital One Cup Impact Performance of the Week and the ESPN All-America Player of the Week.

Weeden set school records for completions (47), attempts (60) and passing yards (438) in Saturday's victory.

And Weeden wasn't the only Cowboy picking up national awards after Saturday's win, as cornerback Brodrick Brown was named the Lott Trophy IMPACT Player of the Week on Monday.

Brown had a key interception in the third quarter when he dove in front of A&M wide receiver Jeff Fuller and helped limit the Aggie star to 55 yards on six catches.

Fuller did have two touchdowns, but Markelle Martin had the coverage on the first and the second came late in the fourth quarter against OSU's prevent defense. Brown also tallied eight tackles in the game.


A huge factor in the Cowboys' rally against A&M was their ability to stop the run, as the Aggies tallied just 15 rushing yards in the second half.
