Heismanpundit’s Player of the Week: Brandon Weeden

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.

    After a near perfect performance against Tech, can we move Weeden into the top 5 HCs?
    +400 yards, +80% completions, handful of td’s, no picks and Blackmon wasn’t even his leading receiver. He’s a cold blooded field general w a cannon for an arm and sniper like accuracy, against tough competition.
    Let’s keep Richardson near the top (I do believe in all purpose yards against tough Ds), but push the QBs with weak SOSs down a few notches, will ya?
