Doctson Tabbed Big 12 Player of the Week

Sept. 28, 2015

IRVING, Texas -- TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson has been named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week for his efforts in Saturday's 55-52 win at Texas Tech.

Doctson, selected Sunday as the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week, had 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns. The 18 catches were the most in a game by an FBS player this season while tying TCU and Big 12 single-game records. Doctson is one of just four players since the start of the 2013 season to have 18 receptions in a game.

The 267 yards receiving broke the TCU single-game mark of 226, set by Jimmy Young against Wyoming in 2008.

Doctson's three touchdown catches gave him 21 in his career, ranking second on the Horned Frogs’ all-time list behind Josh Boyce (22, 2010-12).

Doctson became the first Horned Frog with at least 10 receptions in a game since Trevone Boykin had 11 catches against West Virginia in 2013.

No. 3 TCU hosts Texas Saturday at 11 a.m. on ABC.
