Oklahoma State's Chuba Hubbard scores during the Oklahoma State vs. TCU football game Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium. Hubbard was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.

After a home victory against TCU, three Oklahoma State football players received conference awards.

Chuba Hubbard, the Cowboys' standout redshirt sophomore running back, was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday in a press release. Spencer Sanders, OSU's redshirt freshman quarterback, was honored as the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week, and sophomore safety Kolby Harvell-Peel was selected as the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week.

Hubbard racked up 223 rushing yards Saturday, making him the first player to run for more than 200 yards against TCU's defense during Gary Patterson's career as the Horned Frogs' coach. TCU entered the game with the 15th-ranked rushing defense in the FBS, but Hubbard's 92-yard touchdown play tied him with Justice Hill for the fourth-longest rush in Cowboy history.

Even without star wide receiver Tylan Wallace, who is out with a torn ACL, Sanders went 9-for-15 for 158 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He also finished with 88 rushing yards, behind only Hubbard.

Harvell-Peel had two interceptions, a fumble recovery, two pass breakups and six tackles, including five solo stops. During the previous weekend, he set OSU's record for pass breakups with six against Iowa State.

After a bye week, the Cowboys (6-3 overall, 3-3 Big 12) will host Kansas at 11 a.m. Nov. 16.
