Oklahoma State Football: Ogbah, Grogan Earn Big 12 Player of the Week Honors


The Oklahoma State football team had plenty of players step up on Saturday against Texas, with a certain two leading the way.

Cowboy Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah and kicker Ben Grogan both earned Big 12 Player of the Week awards after their stellar and clutch play against the Texas Longhorns on Saturday during a 30-27 win in Austin. Ogbah’s late-game play actually set the stage for Grogan to come through himself.

  • Ogbah finished the game with six total tackles, which included two sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss, doing more than his part to help Oklahoma State become the first team to beat the Longhorns on four consecutive trips to Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Ogbah’s two sacks could not have come at a better time for the Cowboys, as they both came on Texas’ final drive that resulted in their botched punt, setting up Grogan for the game-winning field goal.

    The junior began the season on the preseason All-Big 12 team, and has lived up to expectations in what could very well be his last season in Stillwater before declaring for the NFL draft. Ogbah currently has 19 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks and six quarterback hurries through four games on the season.

    This week’s award is the second of his career. Ogbah earned the award after the season-opening loss to Florida State in 2014, racking up six tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss and two pass breakups against the Seminoles.

    Grogan, after stating the season with two missed field goals and extra points, connected on two crucial field goals in the last two minutes of the game in Austin after hitting a 34-yard field goal in the first half. His first field goal in the final two minutes came from 41-yards out, tying the game at 27, while his game-winner came from 40 yards away after a false start penalty erased his first successful attempt from 35-yards out. When including his three extra points, Grogan accounted for 12 of OSU’s 30 points. On the year, Grogan has converted eight of 10 field goals, going three of four from beyond 40 yards.

    This week’s award is also Grogan’s second, his first coming in 2013 after scoring 15 points in a win over Kansas State.
