Big 12 helmet stickers: Week 5
By David Ubben
Here are the five (and a few more) guys who got it done this week:
Robert Griffin, QB, Baylor: Griffin threw for a career-high 380 yards and three touchdowns. The best was his third quarter score to Terrance Williams. The ball was snapped over his head, but Griffin scooped it up, rolled to his left and threw across his body to Williams for an 11-yard touchdown that put Baylor up by 34 in the third quarter of its 55-7 win over Kansas. He also ran for 64 yards and a touchdown on eight carries.
Rodney Stewart, RB, Colorado: The 5-foot-6, 175-pound running back they call "Speedy" averaged almost eight yards on his 19 carries, running for 149 yards and a touchdown in Colorado's 29-27 win over Georgia that put the Buffaloes at 3-1 heading into its conference opener against Missouri.
Dan Bailey, K, Oklahoma State: He should probably share his sticker with receiver Justin Blackmon (10 rec., 127 yards, TD) and Shaun Lewis, who set him up with an interception in the final minute, but Bailey banged home a 40-yard field goal as time expired to beat Texas A&M 38-35 on Thursday night.
Iowa State offensive line: The big boys, headlined by center Ben Lamaak and left tackle Kelechi Osemele, paved the way for a pair of 100-yard rushers -- running backs Shontrelle Johnson and Alexander Robinson -- and gave quarterback Austen Arnaud time to throw four touchdown passes in the Cyclones' 52-38 win over Texas Tech. Arnaud was sacked just twice, on the same possession with the Cyclones up 24-7 in the second quarter.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma: Murray ran for 115 yards and two touchdowns against rival Texas to help pace Oklahoma to a 28-20 win. Here's what I wrote about his day.
