  NOV 14 BIG 12 CO-NEWCOMER OF THE WEEK: Kendal Daniels, OSU, S, Fr.,...Daniels created two turnovers and had a game-high 10 tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss in Oklahoma State's 20-14 win over Iowa State. The freshman forced a fumble on a two-yard TFL in OSU territory that was recovered by the Cowboys and then intercepted a third-down pass at the OSU 18-yard line that he returned 12 yards. Daniels also shared a tackle for loss on a 4th-and-1 play with just over five minutes remaining in the game to help seal the win. He now leads all Big 12 freshmen in interceptions, tackles, solo tackles, tackles for loss and passes defended. Daniels also ranks in the top 10 among all FBS freshmen in each of those categories, including a No. 1 ranking in interceptions and a No. 3 ranking in solo tackles. - Big 12 Football

  Spencer Sanders came off the bench to throw the go-ahead touchdown pass, and Oklahoma State rallied to defeat Iowa State 20-14 on Saturday. Sanders, the regular starter, has been battling a shoulder injury. He replaced Gunnar Gundy late in the third quarter, and his 14-yard touchdown pass to Jaden Nixon with 9:18 remaining in the fourth put Oklahoma State up 17-14. It was Gundy's first career start. The son of Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy had his moments, but he was benched after throwing an interception. With the win, Oklahoma State (7-3, 4-3 Big 12) remained in the running for a spot in the Big 12 title game. Xavier Hutchinson caught 10 passes for 106 yards and became Iowa State's career receptions leader. Hunter Dekkers passed for 274 yards, but he threw three interceptions as Iowa State (4-6, 1-6) turned it over five times.

Iowa State's Darien Porter blocked a punt in the second quarter, and the Cyclones took over at the Oklahoma State 9-yard line. Sean Shaw made a leaping grab in the back of the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown reception from Dekkers that gave the Cyclones a 7-3 lead. Oklahoma State came right back. John Paul Richardson's 83-yard touchdown catch from Gundy put the Cowboys back on top. It was the longest reception of Richardson's career. Oklahoma State led 10-7 at halftime behind a defense that forced three turnovers and allowed just 116 yards. Iowa State's Jirehl Brock's 1-yard touchdown run on the opening drive of the second half put the Cyclones up 14-10. With Oklahoma State up 17-14, Iowa State went for it on fourth-and-1 from its 25, but Dekkers was stuffed on a quarterback sneak, and Oklahoma State took over. Tanner Brown's 40-yard field put the Cowboys up 20-14. Iowa State appeared to have struck back with about four minutes remaining, but Jaylin Noel dropped what looked like it would be a 78-yard touchdown in the open field. The Cyclones ended up punting. Iowa State got it back one last time on its 28-yard line with 2:09 remaining and no timeouts. The Cyclones drove to the Oklahoma State 23, but Collin Oliver sacked Dekkers on fourth down to end the threat. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  OCT 24 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Oklahoma State's Spencer Sanders accounted for 434 yards of total offense and two touchdowns in No. 11 OSU's 41-34 win over No. 20 Texas. It was his highest single-game total offense output against a Power Five opponent this season and his second-best total in any game this year. Sanders threw for 391 yards to mark the seventh 300-yard passing game of his career and move him into a tie for third in school history with Taylor Cornelius. The senior set a career-high with 57 pass attempts, tied for the fourth-most in a single game in program history. Sanders moved ahead of Brandon Weeden and into second place on OSU's career list for pass attempts (1,147). He also tied a career-high in completions with 34. Sanders has 30 wins as the Cowboys' starting quarterback, trailing only Mason Rudolph's 32 for most all-time at OSU. - Big 12 Football

  OCT 24 BIG 12 DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Oklahoma State's Jason Taylor II set a single-game career-high with two interceptions in OSU's victory over Texas. He is the first Cowboy to have multiple interceptions in a game since Kolby Harvell-Peel on Nov. 16, 2019. Taylor's first interception came on a 3rd-and-8 on the opening drive of the game to set up an OSU field goal. The second came on a fourth-down play with 1:23 remaining in the game to help seal OSU's win. Taylor led the Cowboys with nine total tackles - all of which were solo stops. His nine solo tackles also led all players in the game. - Big 12 Football

  Spencer Sanders threw for 391 yards and hit Bryson Green with the game-winning touchdown pass with just over three minutes left, and No. 11 Oklahoma State defeated No. 20 Texas 41-34 on Saturday. Green's 41-yard touchdown came when he caught the ball on a slant, broke out of D'Shawn Jamison's grasp just inside the 35 and made a move on Jerrin Thompson to break into the open field. Green had five catches for a career-high 133 yards for Oklahoma State (6-1, 3-1 Big 12), which bounced back from a double-overtime loss to TCU the previous week.

Oklahoma State's Jason Taylor II intercepted two of Quinn Ewers' passes for the Cowboys, and Kendal Daniels picked off Ewers in the final minute to end the Longhorns' final threat. Bijan Robinson ran for 140 yards and a touchdown and caught a 41-yard touchdown pass for Texas (5-3, 3-2). Ewers passed for 319 yards and two touchdowns, but he went 8 of 25 for 129 yards and two interceptions in the second half. Texas led 31-24 at halftime as both teams gained more than 300 yards before the break. Sanders' 10-yard touchdown pass to Brennan Presley and the extra point tied the game at 34 with 9:54 remaining in the fourth quarter, setting up the final frantic minutes. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  Spencer Sanders ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and No. 7 Oklahoma State beat Texas Tech 41-31 on Saturday. Sanders passed for 297 yards and ran for 56, and Bryson Green had five catches for a career-high 115 yards for the Cowboys (5-0, 2-0 Big 12). Texas Tech redshirt freshman Behren Morton got his first career start in place of Donovan Smith. He completed 39 of 62 passes for 379 yards and two touchdowns for the Red Raiders (3-3, 1-2). Jerand Bradley caught eight passes for 119 yards and a touchdown and Trey Cleveland caught nine passes for 110 yards for a Texas Tech team that was playing its fifth straight ranked opponent and already had claimed wins over Houston and Texas.

Morton completed 24 of 39 passes for 220 yards and both scores in the first half to help the Red Raiders take a 24-20 lead at the break. Tech gained 347 yards on 57 plays in the first two quarters. Sanders rolled out and scored on a 2-yard touchdown run to trim Texas Tech's lead to 31-29 in the third. Sanders' shovel pass to Jaden Bray tied the score with 3:18 left in the third quarter. On Texas Tech's next possession, Morton made one of his few mistakes. Oklahoma State linebacker Mason Cobb intercepted him and returned the ball 13 yards to the Tech 19. Tanner Brown's fourth field goal of the game gave the Cowboys a 34-31 lead with 3 seconds left in the third quarter. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  OCT 3 BIG 12 SPECIAL TEAMS & CO-NEWCOMER PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jaden Nixon, OSU, RB, Fr.,...Nixon returned the opening kickoff of the second half 98 yards for a touchdown in the Cowboys' 36-25 win at Baylor. It marked the longest return of his career, OSU's longest return of the season and the first OSU kickoff return touchdown since Brennan Presley's 100-yard return in last year's win over Oklahoma. Nixon's return also tied for the eighth-longest kickoff return in Cowboy history and marked the longest kickoff return for any Big 12 player this season. The freshman finished the game with three kickoff returns for 131 yards, with his yardage total also ranking as the most for a Big 12 player in a game this season. - Big 12 Football

  Jaden Nixon returned the second-half kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown, and ninth-ranked Oklahoma State beat No. 16 Baylor 36-25 on Saturday in a rematch of last year's Big 12 championship game. Nixon's return started a flurry of 39 combined points in the third quarter. He found an open gap in the middle of the field and then broke free from the grasp of Devyn Bobby at the Oklahoma State 35. Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders continued his outstanding play. He finished 20-of-29 passing for 181 yards with a touchdown and an interception and ran 14 times for 75 yards. The Cowboys (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) also beat Baylor in the regular season last year, but came up inches short of their first conference title since 2011 when the Bears made a fourth-down stop just short of the end zone in the final seconds of the championship game.

After Nixon's return, Baylor (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) responded with Blake Shapen's 49-yard TD pass to Monaray Baldwin, who added a 70-yard catch-and-run score later in the third. True freshman Richard Reese had a 1-yard TD run on a short drive set up when Christian Morgan intercepted Sanders. Another long kickoff return for Oklahoma State, with Brennan Presley taking it to midfield after Reese scored, was followed immediately by Braydon Johnson's incredible 49-yard catch and then Dominic Richardson's 1-yard run. The Cowboys added a 19-yard field goal after Shapen's fourth-down incompletion from the Baylor 33 gave Oklahoma State the short field. Sanders threw seven picks in his two games against Baylor last season, including four in the Big 12 title game, but he was more efficient this time. Shapen completed 28 of 40 passes for 345 yards and Baldwin caught seven passes for 174 yards. Reese had 85 yards and a score on 17 carries. Six of the true freshman's TDs have come in Baylor's three home games. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  SEPT 19 BIG 12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Oklahoma State's Trace Ford blocked UAPB's first punt attempt of the game and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown in the opening quarter of Oklahoma State's 63-7 win. It was the first punt blocked for a touchdown by the Cowboys since Sept. 15, 2018, against Boise State. The junior DE was also credited with a quarterback hurry and a third-down pass breakup. OSU ranks second among FBS teams with 30 blocked kicks since the beginning of the 2013 season. After returning a blocked kick and punt for touchdowns in the game, the Cowboys are tied for first in the FBS in non-offensive touchdowns since the beginning of the 2020 season with 11. - Big 12 Football

  Spencer Sanders threw four touchdown passes in just over one quarter of action, and No. 8 Oklahoma State rolled past Arkansas-Pine Bluff 63-7 on Saturday. Sanders matched his career high for touchdown passes in a game in the game's first 16 minutes. He completed 13 of 16 passes for 242 yards for the Cowboys (3-0) in their final nonconference game before entering Big 12 play.

Braydon Johnson caught two touchdown passes, making him one of five Oklahoma State players to catch at least one. The Cowboys gained 538 total yards. Skyler Perry threw a 15-yard scoring pass to Raequan Prince for Pine Bluff's only touchdown. The Golden Lions (2-1), an FCS program, managed just 13 first downs. Oklahoma State returned a blocked punt and a blocked field goal for touchdowns in the first half to take a 49-7 lead at the break. It was the first time in school history that Oklahoma State returned multiple blocked kicks for touchdowns. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football

  Oklahoma State defensive end Brock Martin, a super-senior from Oologah, had the most crucial play of the 34-17 win over Arizona State with the fumble he forced in the second quarter, which led to OSU taking the lead with a touchdown five plays later. But his entire night was impactful. He finished with four tackles, including two for loss and a sack, plus a pair of quarterback hurries. He played 57 of 63 defensive snaps. - Daily Oklahoman

  Spencer Sanders passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, and No. 11 Oklahoma State defeated Arizona State 34-17 on a rainy Saturday night. Sanders passed for 268 yards and ran for 54, and Dominic Richardson ran for 131 yards and a touchdown and caught five passes for 44 yards for the Cowboys (2-0). Emory Jones passed for 223 yards and a touchdown and Xazavian Valladay rushed for 118 yards and a score for Arizona State (1-1). In the second quarter, Oklahoma State's Brock Martin's hit Valladay hard and forced a fumble, Tyler Lacy recovered and the Cowboys took over at the Arizona State 37. Oklahoma State took advantage, and Richardson's 3-yard touchdown run gave the Cowboys a 7-3 lead.

Later in the quarter, Sanders kept on the option for a 6-yard touchdown run to put Oklahoma State up 14-3 with just under three minutes left before halftime. His score capped an 11-play, 96-yard drive. The Cowboys tacked on a field goal to lead 17-3 at the break. Valladay's 1-yard touchdown run, which came shortly after a 73-yard reception by Giovanni Sanders, cut Oklahoma State's lead to 17-10. After an Oklahoma State field goal, Jones connected with Elijhah Badger for a 21-yard touchdown that pulled Arizona State to 20-17 with 14:25 to play. The Cowboys responded with trickery as Sanders found Bryson Green wide open on a flea-flicker, and the 31-yard score put Oklahoma State in control for good. - Oklahoma State/AP College Football
