He earned Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Mountaineers and has earned the honor once again Monday for his outing in Lubbock.
Perine rushed for 213 yards on 25 carries with three touchdowns to help OU overcome a 14-point second half deficit to win 42-30 against the Red Raiders.
Perine wasn’t the only OU player getting recognition Monday morning as junior wide receiver Sterling Shepard was also named a semifinalist for the Biletnikoff Award as well.
Shepard is one of 10 receivers still alive for the coveted award. He has 50 catches for 957 yards despite missing almost all of the last three games. He is one of three Big 12 receivers in hunt.
