Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden was named Big 12 player of the week on Monday. The junior was 23 of 32 pass attempts for 409 passing yards and six touchdowns in the Cowboys' 65-28 win over Tulsa.

Weeden was unstoppable in the first half, throwing for 328 yards and five touchdowns as OSU took a 41-7 halftime lead. He became the first Cowboy quarterback to throw for more than 300 yards (328) in the first half in the win and led OSU on scoring drives in the Pokes' first eight offensive possessions of the game before he was replaced by Clint Chelf.

Weeden is the second OSU offensive player to earn Big 12 offensive player of the week honors this season. Running back Kendall Hunter was named co-offensive player of the week after rushing for 257 yards and four touchdowns against Washington State on Sept. 4.
