NORMAN – Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray and Austin Kendall were named Big 12 Offensive and co-Special Teams Players of the Week, the conference announced Monday.

Murray, a redshirt junior from Allen, Texas, picked up the honor for the second week in a row. He threw for a career-high 348 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for a team-high 77 yards. His 207.4 efficiency rating helped the No. 5 Sooners (3-0 overall, 1-0 Big 12) knock off Iowa State, 37-27.

Seibert made a career-high tying three field goals, including a 42-yarder that sealed the Sooners’ victory. He punted twice with a 48.5-yard average. All eight of his kickoffs resulted in touchbacks.

The Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week award is Seibert’s fourth. He was honored twice last season and once in 2016.

OU concludes its nonconference slate when Army comes to Norman for a 6 p.m. kickoff on Saturday.
