Picking off a pair of passes in No. 7 Oklahoma’s 30-29 win against No. 18 TCU, junior cornerback Zack Sanchez earned Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Week honors. He shares the award with Baylor defensive tackle Andrew Billings.

Sanchez, who also recorded four tackles, a tackle for loss and a pass breakup, led a defensive effort that held the Horned Frogs to 390 yards, 218 below their season average. The interceptions for Sanchez were his Big 12-leading fifth and sixth of the season, and upped his career total to 14, tied for sixth most in OU history. He has five interceptions in his last three games (not including the Oct. 24 Texas Tech contest in which he was injured on the game's first play and did not return). Sanchez is the first Sooner to record two games with multiple interceptions in a season since Brodney Poole in 2003.
