NORMAN – It seemed as if Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray was making a tackle every other Army play.
His program-record 28 tackles against the Black Knights earned him Walter Camp Defensive Player of the Week honors. The 28 tackles are the most by an NCAA FBS player since at least 2000, which is the furthest back the NCAA record book goes in the category.
Linebacker Curtis Bolton also crossed the 20 tackle mark, as he tallied 23 during the Sooners’ 28-21 overtime victory.
Murray is the eighth Oklahoma player to earn Walter Camp honors since 2004 and the second this season. Quarterback Kyler Murray was named the organization’s Offensive Player of the Week after OU’s 49-21 victory against UCLA on Sept. 8.
This is the 15th season the Walter Camp Football Foundation honors one offensive and defensive player as its national FBS Player of the Week during the regular season.
OU (4-0 overall, 1-0 Big 12) returns to action Saturday when Baylor comes to Norman for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff.
