We took a look at the Big 12's All-Bowl team earlier today, but four players from the Big 12 made the national team.

Here they are:

Terrance Ganaway, RB, Baylor

You don't see too many 248-pound running backs busting 89-yard touchdown runs, but Ganaway did exactly that in the Bears' 67-56 win over Washington in the Valero Alamo Bowl. That wasn't all. The Big 12 rushing champion scored five times in the Bears win, and allowed his quarterback, Heisman winner Robert Griffin III, to leave for the NFL with style.

Ganaway played the part of bowling ball, as he'd done so many times this season, and finished his own career the way he'd like to, with a rare bowl win at Baylor.

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State

You'd have to look hard to find a player more important to his team's bowl win.

Blackmon didn't get many looks early in Oklahoma State's 41-38 win over Stanford in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, but once he did, he made them count. His first two catches of the night went for touchdowns, even though Brandon Weeden looked his way on the Cowboys' first offensive play and threw an interception.

He finished with 186 yards receiving and eight catches, scoring on three. The third three-touchdown game of Blackmon's career, it was his first of the 2011 season and first since the third game of 2010, before conference play began.

Levy Adcock, OT, Oklahoma State

Adcock, a senior from Claremore, Okla., was the anchor of the No. 3 Cowboys' offensive line this season, protecting Weeden's blind side.

The Cowboys allowed only one sack in 42 pass attempts in their 41-38 victory in overtime over No. 4 Stanford in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Pokes had 412 yards of offense against the Cardinal and won 12 games in a season for the first time in school history. Their victory over Stanford was their first over a top-five opponent since defeating No. 3 Missouri in 2008.

Philip Blake, C, Baylor

Ganaway wasn't the only big runner in the Valero Alamo Bowl. Baylor had three 100-yard rushers and Blake helped pave the way at center.

The Bears ran for an insane 482 yards and bowl-record seven touchdowns. Washington looked helpless to stop the Bears' running attack, and even the team's dual-threat Heisman winner, Griffin III, didn't top 100 yards.

The Bears had touchdowns of 89, 43, 36 and 24 yards. What a night, and just think, Blake touched the ball on every single snap.
