Sooners’ Kyler Murray earns Earl Campbell Tyler Rose weekly award

Oklahoma quarterback KylerMurray was named the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week after his performance against West Virginia.

In last week’s 59-56 win over the Mountaineers, Murray threw for 364 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 114 yards and a touchdown.

For his performance, he also earned his fifth Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week award, tying Texas’ RickyWilliams for the most in one season.

He became the only player in FBS history to average 300 or more passing yards and 60 or more rushing yards in the regular season.

The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award recognizes the top offensive player in Division I football — considering integrity, performance, teamwork, sportsmanship, drive, community, and tenacity — who is from Texas, graduated from a Texas high school or played either junior college or Division I football in Texas.
