DALLAS (AP) _ Kansas State senior running back Josh Scobey, Nebraska senior linebacker Jamie Burrow and NU sophomore kicker Kyle Larson were named the Big 12 players of the week.

Scobey, a Del City native, rushed for a career-high 204 yards and two touchdowns on 28 carries in Kansas State's 40-6 homecoming victory over Kansas. Scobey's effort ranked fourth on the single-game list at Kansas State, and he became only the fifth Wildcat ever to have 200 yards rushing in a game.

Burrow led the NU Blackshirts' defense against the then-No. 1 Oklahoma Sooners and recorded a team- and career-high 17 tackles, including seven solo stops. Burrow added two tackles for losses, including a sack for -12 yards and had one of the team's 14 quarterback hurries.

Larson also played a key role in the Huskers' 20-10 victory over OU as the sophomore collected 382 yards on 10 punts for a 38.2 yard average. He boomed a career-long 68-yarder in the third quarter to aid the Huskers in pinning the Sooners deep in their territory.

Larson also scooped up three low snaps and did not have a blocked punt during the busy performance.
