Kansas State's Meshak Williams was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week after leading the charge for the Wildcats in their 23-10 victory against the TCU Horned Frogs.

The defensive end tallied seven tackles, two sacks, three tackles for loss and a pass breakup on Saturday. Williams, a senior from Sylvester, Ga., recorded his third game this season of at least two sacks. He is the second Kansas State player this year to win the defensive honor, as linebacker Arthur Brown earned the award on Oct. 22.

As a whole, Bill Snyder's team held TCU to its lowest home point total in the Gary Patterson era. The Wildcats limited the Horned Frogs to 274 total yards, 4-of-15 on third-down conversions, 2.9 yards per rush and 5.4 yards per pass.

Oklahoma State receiver Josh Stewart took home the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week after catching 13 balls for 172 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored on a 46-yard run.

Cowboys kick returner Justin Gilbert earned the special team honor this week after his 96-yard touchdown return.
