For the second consecutive week, an Oklahoma State player has nabbed one of the Big 12′s weekly individual awards.

Cowboy quarterback J.W. Walsh was named the conferences Offensive Player of the Week Monday after completing 24-of-27 passes for 326 yards and four touchdowns in OSU’s 56-35 victory over Texas-San Antonio Saturday. He also picked up a four-yard rushing touchdown.

OSU linebacker Caleb Lavey was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week last week after tallying 11 tackles (three for loss) and 0.5 sacks against Mississippi State.

Walsh’s 88.9 completion percentage set a school record (minimum 20 attempts), while his 239.20 pass efficiency mark was the fourth-best in OSU history.

This is the first Big 12 weekly honor for Walsh and the first for the Cowboys since receiver Josh Stewart grabbed the honor following his performance against West Virginia last November.
