Oklahoma had been shut out from the weekly Big 12 honors but not anymore as a couple of Sooners running backs have put OU on the board, the conference announced Monday morning.
Perine rushed for 242 yards on 34 carries and four touchdowns. He scored all three of OU’s touchdowns in the second half to help OU pull away from West Virginia 45-33 on Saturday night.
He was helped in that cause by fellow running back Alex Ross. The sophomore returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and had two returns for 131 yards in the game to earn Special Teams Player of the Week in the Big 12.
OU, now 4-0, has a bye week and plays at TCU next week.
