Four from Big 12 on Rimington list
By ESPN.com staff
Four players from the Big 12 landed on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, given annually to college football's best center.
- Tim Barnes, Missouri
- Mike Caputo, Nebraska
- Keenan Stevens, Colorado
- Wade Weibert, Kansas State
The obvious thing that jumps off this list is all four guys hail from the North. That's a good sign for running backs like Rodney Stewart, Roy Helu Jr. and Daniel Thomas.
The Rimington Trophy was named for Nebraska's Dave Rimington, who played from 1979-82.
Since Nebraska's Dominic Raiola won the inaugural award in 2000, no Big 12 player has duplicated the feat.
