ICYMI: Rodney Anderson Name Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week

Over the course of four games, Rodney Anderson has been a force to be reckoned with. The redshirt sophomore sat out the past two seasons with injuries. However, heading into this year, expectations soared for the running back. Throughout the first half of the season, Anderson failed to have a major impact on the game.

Fast forward to this four game stand and Anderson has rushed for over 100 yards in each outing. The most recent performance comes against the TCU Horned Frogs. Running the ball 23 times for 151 yards, Anderson also caught five passes for 139 yards. During the outing the back crossed the goal line four times helping Oklahoma to another win over a top ranked opponent.

Collecting 290 all purpose yards, Anderson now sits 11th all-time in a single game performance in school history. More impressively, the sophomore became the first player with 139 yards rushing and receiving in a single game since 1996 according to SoonerSports. Surging up draft boards, it’ll be interesting to see where this kid lands.

Needless to say, the outing was the impressive enough to land the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week honors.
