Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden was 36 of 46 for a career-high 502 yards and four touchdown passes in his team’s thrilling 52-45 win over Kansas State last Saturday.
For that performance, we’ve selected Weeden as Heismanpundit.com’s Player of the Week.
It’s been quite a season for the 6-4, 218-pound, Weeden, who now has 3,212 passing yards, 26 TDs and 9 interceptions on the year. More importantly, thanks to his play against Kansas State, the Cowboys are undefeated and have a chance to play for the national title if they can win out.
There’s been some question as to why Weeden hasn’t gotten more Heisman hype. I think that’s starting to change.
Finish up strong with a big win over rival Oklahoma and he might be heading to New York.
