NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma defensive end Jeremy Beal has been named the Big 12 Conference's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in last Saturday's game at No. 17 Miami.

Jeremy Beal, a junior from Carrollton, Texas, logged three sacks in Oklahoma’s 21-20 loss at Miami. He finished with five total tackles and also knocked down two passes.

It was the second-straight game in which Beal had three sacks. He ranks No. 3 nationally in sacks and No. 8 in tackles for loss. Four of his eight TFL have come against nationally-ranked opponents.

Beal now has six sacks through four games this season. The school record of 14 was set in 1997 by Martin Chase.

Other weekly Big 12 honors for the week went to Kansas State's Grant Gregory (offense) and Emmanuel Lamur (special teams).

Oklahoma, 2-2, returns to action this weekend when it opens Big 12 Conference play against Baylor. The Sooners host the Bears in a 2:30 p.m., kickoff Saturday at Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The game will be televised regionally by ABC.
