(Dallas-AP) -- Oklahoma quarterback Josh Heupel, Nebraska
linebacker Julius Jackson and Colorado kicker Jeremy Aldrich are
the Big 12 players of the week.

Heupel is the offensive player of the week. He broke his own
single game record for passing yards by throwing for 420 yards in
the Sooners' victory over Baylor 41-to-10.

Jackson is the defensive player of the week. He was a one-man
wrecking crew in the Huskers' 20-to-13 win over Southern Miss with
a 28-yard pass interception return for a game-winning touchdown.
Earlier in the game, he returned a fumble 16 yards for another
score.

Aldrich is the specialty player of the week. He broke the
Buffaloes' long-standing record of four field goals by connecting
on all five three-pointers in a 51-to-17 win over Kansas.
