Sproles, Mayes and Williams named Big 12 players of week

DALLAS (AP) _ Darren Sproles of Kansas State, Texas A&M's Erik Mayes and Darrent Williams of Oklahoma State were named Big 12 players of the week on Monday.

Sproles ran for a school-record 292 yards and one touchdown in Kansas State's 40-20 win against Louisiana-Lafayette. The performance was his second 200-yard rushing game of the season.

The senior also had 53 return yards and six receiving yards to finish with 351 all-purpose yards. That mark broke his old school record of 345, set in the 2003 Big 12 Championship game. He is also now No. 1 in the nation in kick-return average at 38.5.

Mayes had 10 tackles, including one for a loss, a key fourth-quarter interception and a pass deflection in Texas A&M's 27-6 win over then-No. 25 Clemson. The freshman also had two punt returns for 58 yards.

Williams picked up his second consecutive player of the week honors for his work in Oklahoma State's 59-7 win over SMU. His 162 punt return yards were a career high. He averaged 32.4 yards on five returns and had a long return of 47 yards. He also had three tackles, a 53-yard fumble return and a pass breakup.
