2021 All-Big 12 Football Team: Heartland College Sports Edition

NCAA Football: Baylor at Texas Tech

The 2021 Big 12 football season is in the books as we now all look ahead to bowl season. This past season will be defined by surprises for the better, like the Baylor Bears, who won the Big 12, and then those surprises for the worse, like Texas, who at one point lost six games in a row.

But regardless, we want to now take the time to celebrate and honor the great performers in the Big 12 Conference as the Heartland College Sports staff put together its list for the 2021 All-Big 12 football team. This will vary slightly from some of the other national lists you’ve seen, but we promise you no staff watched more Big 12 football top to bottom than this crew. So here we go with our Heartland College Sports All-Big 12 football team for the 2021 season.
