The first of likely many conference awards was given to Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders on Monday. The redshirt freshman was named as the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week for his performance against McNeese.
In helping OSU to a 56-14 win, Sanders threw for 250 yards and three touchdowns, with no interceptions, in just over two quarters of work. He added 51 rushing yards to finish with more than 300 yards of total offense in just his second career start.
Sanders’ three touchdown passes were of 75, 69 and 4 yards. His award is the first for the Cowboys this season.
