Collin Klein, Arthur Brown earn Big 12 Player of Week Awards

Peter G. Aiken-US PRESSWIRE

Both K-State players earned Big 12 Football Players of the Week honors after a big win over the West Virginia Mountaineers.

With a dominating, 55-14 win over West Virginia, the Kansas State Wildcats were able to move ahead of the Oregon Ducks and take the No. 3 spot in the BCS Standings, despite the fact that the Ducks beat Arizona State, 43-21. Especially dominant for the Wildcats were quarterback Collin Klein and linebacker Arthur Brown, who earned Big 12 Football Players of the Week honors for their efforts.

Klein completed 19-of-21 passes for K-State in the win, accumulating a career-best 323 yards passing with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also added another four touchdowns on the ground to total seven touchdowns and put himself in the talk for the Heisman Trophy.

On defense, the Wildcats were very strong as well, holding the potent Mountaineers' offense to just 243 total yards and 14 points. Brown recorded eight tackles for K-State and a third quarter interception of Geno Smith that ended the West Virginia quarterback's record-breaking streak of attempts without an interception.

It is the first time Brown has won a Defensive Player of the Week award and the second Offensive Player of the Week award in 2012 for Klein.
