Gilbert Wins Big 12 Player Of The Week

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert earned Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week honors, it was announced today. He shared the accolade with Texas kicker Anthony Fera.

Gilbert returned the opening kickoff of the game 100 yards for a touchdown in the Cowboys' 42-6 win over Kansas and set a new Big 12 career record in the process. Gilbert's score - the sixth kickoff return touchdown of his career - gives him sole possession of the conference's career record, makes him the active leader among all NCAA players and leaves him just one kickoff return touchdown shy of tying the NCAA record of seven, held jointly by Clemson's C.J. Spiller (2006-09) and Houston's Tyron Carrier (2008-11).

Including Gilbert this week, eight different OSU players have combined for nine Big 12 weekly honors this season, tying the Big 12 record for most different players from a single team to earn Big 12 weekly honors during the course of a season. Colorado had eight players recognized a total of eight times in 2001 and Oklahoma State had eight players recognized a total of nine times in 2010.
