Collin Klein named Maxwell Award Player of the Week

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein picked up Maxwell Award Player of the Week honors after scoring seven touchdowns in a 55-14 win over West Virginia.

A dominant force once again over the weekend to help keep his Wildcats undefeated, Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was named the Maxwell Award Player of the Week on Tuesday for his standout performance against West Virginia.

The 6'5 Klein completed 19 of his 21 throws for 323 yards and three touchdowns as a passer, and also managed to chip in 41 rushing yards and four more touchdowns on the ground in the blowout win over the Musketeers. Along with breaking Darren Sproles' Kansas State rushing record of 45 touchdowns, Klein's 24 total scores after just seven games now make him a prime Heisman contender heading into the month of November.

The only BCS quarterback with at least 14 rushing touchdowns and 10 touchdown passes so far in 2012, Klein and the 7-0 Wildcats will host a one-loss Texas Tech team this weekend in Manhattan. Klein ran for 110 yards and three touchdowns to help key a win over Tech last season as a junior, and will look to remain undefeated against the Red Raiders as a starter.
