Each year after the regular season ends, we do an All-Big 12 team to honor the players who have had remarkable success. Since the last game of the season is on Monday for the title, I thought it would be fun to throw out another All-Big 12 team after the bowl season.
QB: Spencer Sanders (Oklahoma State)
He didn’t have a great first half against Notre Dame, but he helped lead the big comeback for Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl. Sanders threw for a whopping 371 yards and four touchdowns against a good Notre Dame defense.
RB: Deuce Vaughn (Kansas State)
The 2022 Heisman hopeful had a big game in the Texas Bowl rushing for 146 yards and three touchdowns against LSU in the Texas Bowl.
RB: Kennedy Brooks (Oklahoma)
Brooks had a last game to remember as he ran for 142 yards and three scores against Oregon in the Alamo Bowl.
WR: Tay Martin (Oklahoma State)
Without a doubt, Tay Martin had the best receiving performance in the entire Big 12 during the bowl season. In the Fiesta Bowl, Tay went off for 104 yards and had three touchdown grabs.
WR: Brennan Presley (Oklahoma State)
Much like his teammate Tay Martin, Presley also had a solid performance as he caught ten passes for 137 yards.
WR: Malik Knowles (Kansas State)
Even though he had just 42 receiving yards, Malik managed to make the most of his three catches as two of them went for touchdowns.
TE: Charlie Kolar (Iowa State)
There wasn’t any true standout performance from the Big 12 tight ends, but Charlie did catch a touchdown pass in the Cheez-It Bowl.
Team OL: Oklahoma
Baylor was in the mix for the award, but I felt like the Sooners were a little more deserving considering they were able to run for an impressive 322 yards against Oregon. The offensive line did an excellent job of opening holes in the run game and didn’t give up a single sack.
K: Jonathan Garibay (Texas Tech)
P: Isaac Power (Baylor)
KR: Malik Knowles (Kansas State)
PR: Phillip Brooks (Kansas State)
DL: Siaki Ika (Baylor)
The All-Big 12 defensive lineman had a good game against Ole Miss. While he didn’t fill up the stat sheet, he did cause havoc throughout the game.
DL: Brock Martin (Oklahoma State)
The edge rusher had two key sacks in Oklahoma State’s win over Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl.
DL: Dante Stills (West Virginia)
There weren’t many bright spots for West Virginia in their bowl game but Stills managed to take down the quarterback once and made his presence felt.
DL: Tyree Wilson (Texas Tech)
Tyree had two big time sacks for the Red Raiders in their win over Mississippi State in the Liberty Bowl.
LB: Colin Schooler (Texas Tech)
The Red Raiders leader in tackles did his thing once again as he led his team with nine stops with two of those going for negative yards against Mississippi State.
LB: Malcolm Rodriguez (Oklahoma State)
The All-American had an All-American performance in the bowl game he racked up eleven tackles and even had an interception against Notre Dame.
LB: Terrel Bernard (Baylor)
If there was a defensive MVP of the Big 12 bowl season it would have been Terrel Bernard. The All-Big 12 linebacker had a game to remember as he had a whopping 17 tackles in the Sugar Bowl.
DB: JT Woods (Baylor)
JT had not one but two key interceptions in Baylor’s win over Ole Miss.
DB: Al Walcott (Baylor)
Al had the big interception in the Sugar Bowl that went 96-yards the other way for six.
DB: Ross Elder (Kansas State)
Ross led the team in tackles and had an interception in the Texas Bowl as the Wildcats stomped all over LSU.
DB: Beau Freyler (Iowa State)
The true freshman had his breakout performance in the Cheez-It Bowl racking up 15 tackles against Clemson.
