|ESPN.com: Big 12||[Print without images]|
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
One of our most popular features during the season was our Sunday morning awarding of helmet stickers for strong performances during games of that week.
With the completion of all spring games across the conference, it figured to be a good way to honor some of the best of the Big 12's spring game performances.
Here are my choices:
Baylor QB Robert Griffin: Passed for 310 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 41 yards and another score as the focal point of the Bears' final scrimmage.
Colorado's running backs: Hard to single out one player as Darrell Scott (90 yards), Demetrius Sumler (73 yards), Brian Lockridge (55 yards) and Rodney Stewart (52 yards) all had big days in the Buffs' Black-Gold game.
Iowa State QB Jerome Tiller: The backup Iowa State quarterback outplayed projected starter Austen Arnaud as he led the Cardinal (second-string offense) to a 34-16 victory over the Gold (first-string offense). Tiller passed for 210 yards and two touchdowns and added a 65-yard touchdown run to key the victory.
Texas' secondary: The Longhorns even made Colt McCoy look bad, allowing him to complete only 11 of 24 passes for 95 yards. Earl Thomas and Nolan Brewster contributed interceptions, but the Longhorns showed legitimate two-deep talent at all secondary positions.
Kansas State DE Brandon Harold: Made the most of his switch back outside by contributing nine tackles, including four for losses, and three sacks as a key performer in the Wildcats' Purple-White game.
Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh: Despite limited playing time, produced four tackles, including two for losses, and a sack to key production in Nebraska's Red-White game.
Kansas State QB Carson Coffman: Passed for 334 yards and three touchdowns to contribute most of the offense in the Purple-White game. Coffman's big effort has given him the lead leaving spring practice, but he'll still have to hold off South Florida transfer Grant Gregory and heralded junior-college transfer Daniel Thomas to win the starting job.
Texas A&M WR Jeff Fuller: Produced nine receptions for 154 yards and a scintillating 30-yard TD grab from Jerrod Johnson as he emerged as the Aggies' top offensive threat this spring.
