Big 12 honors five players

November 26, 2001


— Colorado's Chris Brown, who rushed for a school-record six touchdowns in the Buffaloes' upset of Nebraska, was named Sunday as the Big 12 Conference offensive player of the week.

Brown rushed 24 times for 198 yards Friday as the Buffaloes clinched the Big 12 North title with their 62-36 victory over then No. 2 Nebraska.

Oklahoma State safety Marcus Jones and Baylor safety Samir Al-Amin shared defensive player of the week honors.

Jones intercepted two passes in the Cowboys' 16-13 win over Oklahoma, including one with 10 seconds left to secure the win.

Al-Amin tied the NCAA single-game record by returning two interceptions for touchdowns in Baylor's 56-12 victory over Southern Illinois.

The special teams award was also shared by two players, Oklahoma State kicker Luke Phillips and Texas cornerback Roderick Babers.
