OSU's Roland Is Big 12 Offensive Player Of The Week

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State running back Desmond Roland is the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week, the conference office announced today.

Making the first start of his career, Roland rushed for 219 yards and four touchdowns on 26 carries to lead the Cowboys to a 58-27 win over Iowa State in Ames. Roland's 219 rushing yards and four touchdowns both represent the top marks for any Big 12 player in a game this year. His 219 rushing yards were the most for an Oklahoma State back in a road game against a Big 12 opponent since Vernand Morency rushed for 269 yards at Kansas in 2003. Roland's 219 rushing yards marked the third-most of any player in the country last week.

The junior from Dallas is the only Big 12 player with a 200-yard rushing game this year and is the second Cowboy to earn Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week this season, following J.W. Walsh, who secured the honor after OSU's win at UTSA. All told, six OSU players have combined for seven Big 12 weekly honors this season.

Oklahoma State players to earn Big 12 weekly honors in 2013:

Sept. 2 - Caleb Lavey, Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

Sept. 9 - J.W. Walsh, Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week

Sept. 16 - Josh Stewart, Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week

Oct. 7 - Shaun Lewis, Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week

Oct. 7 - Ben Grogan, Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week

Oct. 21 - Josh Stewart, Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week
