OSU football: Malcolm Rodriguez named Big 12 Defensive Player of Week

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State linebacker Malcolm Rodriguez’s heroics on Saturday did not go unnoticed.

Rodriguez was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.

The Wagoner product had the game-winning interception and touchdown return in Saturday’s 34-27 upset at No. 23 Iowa State. He also led all tacklers with 11 and recorded a pass breakup.

Rodriguez is the fifth OSU player to win a weekly Big 12 honor this season, joining safety Kolby Harvell-Peel as the only two to win defensive honors.
