After a stressful victory over West Virginia Saturday, two TCU Horned Frogs have been named Big 12 Players of the Week.

Jaden Oberkrom was named BIg 12 Special Teams Player of the Week for the second consecutive week after hitting the game-winning 37-yard field goal as time expired. Oberkrom is now 14-for-18 on the season and has made five in a row since missing his lone opportunity against Oklahoma State. The made field goal was Oberkrom's 50th of his career, good for fourth all time at TCU.

Meanwhile, TCU's Kevin White outdueled West Virginia's Kevin White and received Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. White held White to 3 receptions for 28 yards, his second lowest output of the season, and second consecutive week he's been held under 30 receiving yards. White is second on the team in passes defended with seven, behind Chris Hackett, who has nine.

TCU faces off against Kansas State this Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium, at 6:30 p.m.
