A pair of players with Oklahoma ties were honored by the Big 12 Conference on Monday.

OSU senior linebacker Malcolm Rodriguez is the Big 12 co-Defensive Player of the Week.

Rodriguez recovered a fumble for a touchdown against Kansas State, and had seven tackles, including one for a loss.

It’s his second weekly award of the season and fourth of his career.

Former Southmoore and Newcastle quarterback Casey Thompson of Texas is the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.

Thompson was 18-for-23 passing for 303 yards and five touchdowns against Texas Tech last Saturday.

He also rushed for 29 yards and a touchdown.

The five passing touchdowns and six total touchdowns are both tied for second most in a game in Texas history.

It’s Thompson’s first weekly award.
