The awards keep coming for Oklahoma state running back Jaylen Warren who picked up his fourth Big 12 Newcomer of the Week award for his performance on Saturday in Morgantown against the West Virginia mountaineers.
Warren made much of a little on Saturday, racking up 78 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries. Warren has been the engine for the Oklahoma State offense, working his way to extra yardage and producing when the Cowboys can’t seem to get much else done.
Jaylen Warren was held in check for most of the first half on Saturday, but after the Cowboys recovered a muffed punt by the Mountaineers, he ran the ball three straight times for a total of 14 yards to set up a touchdown pass from Spencer Sanders to Tay Martin. Then in the fourth quarter, Warren marched into the end zone untouched from the 13-yard line.
The touchdown was Warren’s first touchdown in over a month, but his seventh score on the season. He continues to be the backfield threat that the Cowboys need in order to open up the passing game, and he will undoubtedly be a key player for Oklahoma State through the end of the season.
