LUBBOCK, TX – After guiding Texas Tech to an upset win at No. 1 Oklahoma on Saturday evening, junior quarterback Seth Doege was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week. The honor marks his second of the season after being selected on Sept. 19, following a victory at New Mexico.

Doege is the only Big 12 player to be selected as the Offensive Player of the Week twice this year.

In Saturday's victory over the Sooners, Doege completed 33 of 52 passes for 441 yards and four touchdowns as the Red Raiders snapped Oklahoma's 39-game home winning streak. Doege also registered a touchdown on the ground in the second quarter.

On Sunday, he was named the Walter Camp Football Association Offensive Player of the Week for the second time this season. The award is handed out to the top offensive player in the country as chosen by the national media and administered by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.  

Doege was also named the AT&T All-America Player of the Week award on Sept. 22.  

With the performance, Doege has now totaled three games of throwing for over 400 yards and has passed for over 300 yards in six of Tech's seven games. This season Doege has passed for 2,608 yards with 22 touchdowns, and is averaging 373 yards through the air per game.

Doege is the first Texas Tech offensive player to receive Big 12 Player of the Week honors multiple times in a season since Graham Harrell received the honor three times in 2008.
