Josh Freeman Nominated for USA Today Award

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State quarterback Josh Freeman is one of six candidates for this week's USA Today College Football Player of the Week, the publication has announced.

Fans are encouraged to go online to and vote for this week's national player of the week.

Freeman, a junior, led K-State to its first win at Texas A&M since 1996 on Saturday by finishing the contest with 329 total yards, 234 passing and 95 rushing, and four rushing touchdowns.

The Grandview, Mo., native was 21-of-26 through the air with no interceptions for a rating of 156.37, while his four rushing touchdowns were the second-most in school history for a single game and moved him atop the Big 12 rankings in number of rushing touchdowns this season with 12.

Freeman has already become Kansas State's all-time leader in pass completions (567) and yardage (6,642) and needs just two more touchdown passes and 57 pass attempts to become the school's all-time leader in those categories as well.
