Honors Follow Buffs Victory Over Missouri

LB Drew Wahlroos and KR Roman Hollowell are named Big 12 defensive and special teams players of the week respectively.

Roman Hollowell's 69-yard punt return for a touchdown gave the Buffs a 38-24 lead against Missouri. The play put the game of reach and earned Hollowell the Big 12 special teams player of the week award. Hollowell is the leading punt returner in the nation, averaging 20.3 yards per return. Not to be out-done, Drew Wahlroos was named the Big 12 defensive player of the week after his 14 tackle performance against the Tigers. What was really impressive was the fact that 10 of his 14 tackles were solo tackles. Also on the award front, SS Michael Lewis is a Big 12 finalist for the Jim Thorpe award given to the nations best defensive back. The award is given out at the end of the season.
