Career games delineate Big 12's best offensive players

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

I was brought up in an era of distinctive achievements like 100-yard rushing and receiving games and 300-yard passing performances.

That's why I still look at these kind of efforts as a personal benchmark when I measure the effectiveness of rushers, passers and receivers.

And it sent me scrambling to the NCAA website for some information about Big 12 players.

I was curious about the number of 100-yard rushing and receiving games and 300-yard passing games that returning Big 12 players have compiled over the course of their careers.

Here's a list of the active leaders heading into the upcoming season.
