He led the Houston Cougars to arguably one of the biggest upsets so far this year and on Sunday, Quarterback Case Keenum was rewarded by being named National Offensive Player of the Week by the Walter Camp Football Foundations. [SPORTS BLOG: Read the latest from the Eyewitness Sports team]

UH topped Oklahoma State Saturday, 45-35, in Stillwater Saturday, giving the Coogs their first win over a top 5 team since 1984. Keenum threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns, but none more important than the fourth-down scoring strike to Bryce Beall from six yards out to reclaim the lead from the Cowboys with just 6:42.

The fourth-down pass caromed off an OSU defender and Beall snagged it out of the air. Keenum, who completed 32-of-46 attempts with one interception, threw for a touchdown in his 18th straight game and 26 of 28 games in his career. He also tacked on a 16-yard scoring run in the first quarter.

It is the second time Keenum has earned Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week honors with the last coming last season after a game against Tulsa.

UH, which is now ranked No. 21 in the country, is off this until September 26, when they'll face the high-flying Texas Tech Red Raiders at Robertson Stadium.
