Big 12: Happiness Osunde

It's time to officially unveil the Big 12's All-Name Team for 2012.

Any player on a current roster, regardless of role on the team, is eligible. The only requirement: Your name must be awesome.

Injury bug bites Texas Tech again

Texas Tech lost three players to torn ACLs last week, including top receiver Alex Torres. The Red Raiders, at 5-6, have dealt with big injuries all year, and will have to deal with another injury at Cowboys Stadium.

Cornerback Happiness Osunde was carted off the field in an air cast and replaced by Derrick Mays. Terrible to see, and Osunde's injury looked pretty serious.

Reserve running back Kenny Williams rumbled in for a five-yard touchdown to cut Baylor's lead to 10-7 at the end of the first quarter.

Williams began the season as the fifth running back, and but he's had to shoulder the running game load this week.
