Jake Knott named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.
Good for him... he earned it!
The Big 12 has named its players of the week for Week 2, as voted on by a media panel.
OFFENSE: Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State: Klein completed 9-of-11 passes for 210 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 52-13 win over Miami. He also ran for three touchdowns and 71 yards on 22 carries. That was the 10th multi-touchdown game of Klein's career, according to the Big 12.
DEFENSE: Jake Knott, LB, Iowa State: Knott finished with six tackles and helped Iowa State hold Iowa to just 68 yards on 28 rushing attempts in the Cyclones' 9-6 Cy-Hawk rivalry win. Knott earned the league's best play of the weekend, intercepting Iowa's James Vandenberg with 1:11 remaining and the Hawkeyes driving in Iowa State territory to seal the victory.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Deante' Gray, PR, TCU: Gray gave TCU a special moment in its grand opening of the rebuilts Amon G. Carter Stadium returning a punt 70 yards for a touchdown the first time a Horned Frog had possession of the ball in the new stadium. He finished with 160 yards on five punt returns, a TCU single-game record. He added a 61-yard return in the second half
