West Virginia football: Geno Smith wins Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week

US PRESSWIRE

Geno Smith's 23-for-24 passing display Saturday against the Kansas Jayhawks earned him a player of the week honor, which he split with Baylor's Lache Seastrunk.

Geno Smith has been named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week for his performance Saturday against the Kansas Jayhawks, leading his team to a 59-10 win in West Virginia's regular season finale.

None of Smith's passes hit the ground on a day that he carved apart the Kansas defense: 23 of his 24 attempts were completed, and a 24th was intercepted. The pick aside, he had a day that reminded fans of his brief Heisman candidacy earlier this season, tossing his 40th touchdown of the year and going for 407 yards and three touchdowns. Stedman Bailey was his top target, as the receiver had 159 yards on 11 catches, while Tavon Austin had four grabs for 110 yards.

Smith shares the award with Lache Seastrunk, who had 178 yards rushing for Baylor, including a 76-yard touchdown where he pulled his hamstring with 40 yards to paydirt but finished the run.
