Cowboys Nearly Sweep Weekly Football Awards

The Oklahoma State Cowboys reached bowl eligibility for the 14th straight season this weekend after their 34-27 win against the TCU Horned Frogs and the Big 12 recognized the play of a trio of Pokes that made that win possible.
Starting with the defense with Kolby Harvell-Peel, who played a part in three turnovers. He caught two interceptions that he read well out of the hand of TCU’s Max Duggan. Harvell-Peel also pounced on a loose ball that Rodarius Williams jarred loose from a TCU running back.
The sophomore safety also defended a pair of passes and finished the game with six tackles.
The offensive player of the week was a slam dunk with the historic performance from running back Chuba Hubbard, who became the first runner to surpass 200 yards on a Gary Patterson coached team. Hubbard scored on runs of 62 and 92 yards with the later tying him for the fourth longest run in program history.
The newcomer of the week went to redshirt freshman signal caller Spencer Sanders, who rushed for 88 yards and threw at a 60 percent clip. Sanders also found junior wideout Dillon Stoner twice for touchdowns.
Sanders’ day might have been better if the offensive line was not flagged for an illegal shift that brought back a long touchdown run.
The only weekly award the Pokes did not earn was the special teams player of the week, which went to Bravvion Roy from Baylor. Roy blocked the potential game-tying kick on Thursday against West Virginia.
