Kansas State quarterback Grant Gregory and safety Emmanuel Lamur have been named the Big 12 Offensive and Special Teams Players of the Week for their performances in a win against Iowa State.
Gregory threw for two touchdowns and ran for another in his first collegiate start, completing 16 of 23 passes for 206 yards. Lamur blocked what would have been the game-tying extra point in the fourth quarter.
* Former Kapaun Mount Carmel lineman David Arkin was named Missouri Valley Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week. Arkin, a junior guard, helped Missouri State total 352 yards in a 17-7 win over Youngstown State. The line did not allow a sack on 28 pass attempts by quarterback Cody Kirby.

A judge in Lawrenceburg, Ky., has set a Feb. 10 trial date in the drunken-driving case against former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie.
Gillispie wasn't in Anderson County District Court for Monday's hearing. Attorney William Patrick said he requested a delay in the proceedings because Gillispie hadn't yet decided whether to agree to a plea bargain.
County Attorney Bobbi Jo Lewis has acknowledged offering Gillispie a plea deal but says she will not accept a plea to a lesser charge than DUI.
Gillispie was arrested Aug. 27 and charged with DUI after refusing sobriety tests during a traffic stop in which officers said they smelled alcohol on his breath.
Gillispie was fired this year after a rocky two-year tenure in which the Wildcats went 40-27.
