Sizing up the Big 12 in the Super Bowl

We took a look a while back at the former Big 12 stars suiting up on active rosters in the Super Bowl, and if you hadn't heard, they played the game last night.

A few of you may have seen it.

Anyway, here's a look at how they did.

Green Bay

Mason Crosby, K, Colorado
  • 4-of-4 on extra points, made 23-yard field goal in only attempt of the night.
Graham Harrell, QB, Texas Tech
  • Did not play, was active as third quarterback
Brandon Jackson, RB, Nebraska
  • Caught one pass for 14 yards.
Jordy Nelson, WR, Kansas State
  • Had nine catches for 140 yards, both game highs, and caught the game's first touchdown in his only score of the night.
Pittsburgh

Casey Hampton, NT, Texas
  • Made one tackle
Justin Hartwig, C, Kansas

Tony Hills, LT, Texas

Jonathan Scott, OT, Texas

Ziggy Hood, DL, Missouri
  • Had one tackle, but tackle was a sack for loss of four yards

Nelson had by far the biggest game of the group, and his nine catches and 140 yards were both career highs. Nelson has come on as one of Aaron Rodgers' most frequent targets in the playoffs. It's good to see a guy have the best game of his career on a stage like that, even if a few drops kept him from going over 200 yards and adding a second score, which likely would have been the case if he had hauled them in.

That said, he woke up this morning as a Super Bowl champion, so I think he'll get over it. Even still, not bad for a walk-on from tiny Riley, Kan. right?

On a final note, for those of you keeping score, former Texas Tech star Graham Harrell and former Missouri star Chase Daniel have collected Super Bowl rings in consecutive years as backups.

Zac Robinson, your day is coming.

There's some kind of big game tonight, right?

I almost forgot.

But there are still a mess of lunch links from across the conference dealing with tonight's BCS national championship game and other items of interest from across the Big 12.
