Colorado quarterback Cody Hawkins was named Big 12 Offensive Players of the Week today after leading the Buffs to victory against Iowa State five days after his father was fired last week.

Cody Hawkins completed 16 of 24 passes for 266 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception.

Hawkins also became just the second player in Colorado history to eclipse the 7,000-yard mark in passing. He needs just 331 yards passing in the final two games of the season to become the program's all-time leading passer.

Hawkins' performance in the face of adversity related to his father was impressive to Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, this week's opponent.

"You couldn't say enough positive things about him, and I think he's been that way all along," Snyder said. "Just based on what I know about him and having spent time with his father and visited about him. I think he's a class young guy."
