Texas Tech's record-setting quarterback Graham Harrell's success hasn't been limited to the football field. Harrell was among six players who earned a perfect 4.0 grade-point average and were nominated for the 2008 Academic All-Big 12 football team.

Other players who were nominated with a 4.0 GPA include Nebraska senior linebacker Tyler Wortman, Nebraska sophomore linebacker Thomas Grove, Oklahoma State redshirt freshman linebacker Jared Glover, Oklahoma State senior guard Andrew Lewis and senior running back/wide receiver James Griffin of Texas Tech.

Texas placed a league-leading 22 players on the squad, with 17 on the first team and five on the second.

Here's a list of the entire 137 players selected for the first and second team by the conference.
