Texas A&M's Tony Jerod-Eddie Wins Big 12 Defensive Player Award

The Big 12 released its weekly awards today and Texas A&M did more than just beat SMU like a drum. Defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie won the Defensive Player of the Week award after totaling six tackles and three sacks against a hapless Mustang offensive line.

Jerod-Eddie has been a solid player for a few years now in this Aggie scheme. He and teammate Eddie Brown are fairly underrated because neither has prototypical size. But, Jerod-Eddie showed flashes early that he can fill in for Lucas Patterson's production from last year. The senior had just two sacks in his first three seasons at Texas A&M before this game. It was also part of an eight-sack night for the Aggies, which is the most for the Wrecking Crew since 2002.

Other award winners were Baylor's Robert Griffin III as the offensive player of the week, Baylor kicker Aaron Jones and Oklahoma State kicker Quinn Sharp sharing the special teams award. Baylor, of course, won that wild game against TCU last Thursday as Griffin electrified America with his athleticism, throwing for 359 yards and five touchdowns.
