Big 12: helmet stickers 11

Big 12 helmet stickers, Week 11

November, 15, 2009
It was tough to limit my choices to only five players, so I split up a couple to include strong groups or duos.

Here are my choices for the coveted Big 12 weekly award:

Nebraska I-back Roy Helu Jr.: Rushed for 156 yards on 28 carries and scored three touchdowns to pace the Cornhuskers’ 31-17 victory over Kansas. Helu scored on touchdown runs of 20 and 14 yards -- both in the fourth quarter -- and also added another touchdown when he recovered a fumble by Zac Lee in the end zone earlier in the game. Helu accounted for 86 yards in the fourth quarter to pace Nebraska’s comeback, pushing his season rushing total to 962 yards.

Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones and running back DeMarco Murray: Both were key in the Sooners’ 65-10 victory over Texas A&M. Jones passed for a career-high 392 yards and five touchdowns. Murray rushed for 80 yards on 18 carries and added a career-high 143 receiving yards on five catches, two of which went for touchdown. Murray produced a career-long 67-yard reception for a touchdown.

Oklahoma State’s offensive line: The Cowboys dominated in the trenches in the second half of their 24-17 victory over Texas Tech thanks to O-line's work. Senior tackles Russell Okung and Brady Bond, guards Noah Franklin and Lane Taylor and center Andrew Lewis helped the Cowboys claim the gritty comeback victory. Three different rushers produced at least 68 yards for the Cowboys as they rolled up 243 rushing yards in the game. But the line's work was especially noticeable in the second half, when OSU put the game away with 207 yards on the ground and more than 22 minutes of time of possession.

Missouri wide receiver Danario Alexander: Produced 10 catches for 200 yards and three touchdowns to help boost the Tigers to a 38-12 victory over Kansas State. Alexander scored on touchdown receptions of 54, 16 and 80 yards from Blaine Gabbert to enable the Tigers to gain bowl eligibility. Alexander has produced 414 yards in his past two games, including back-to-back 200-yard receiving games for the first time in school history.

Iowa State’s defense: It’s hard to split this sticker among the group that sealed the Cyclones’ 17-10 victory over Colorado, earning them bowl eligibility for the first time since 2005. The ISU defense notched three second-half turnovers and held its third conference opponent to 10 points or less in the victory.

Here are my choices from a stellar group of candidates. To say it was a tough choice would be a huge understatement.

Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell -- Completed 40 of 50 passes for 456 yards and six touchdown passes to match his career high in a 56-20 blowout victory over Oklahoma State. After an early fumble on the first possession, Harrell directed seven straight drives that ended with touchdowns to spark the Red Raiders to their first 10-0 start since 1938.

Texas CB Ryan Palmer -- Provided a momentum-changing 22-yard interception return for a touchdown that gave Texas the lead for good. Also notched two tackles, produced a sack and broke up a pass in the Longhorns' 45-21 victory over Baylor.

Colorado QB Cody Hawkins - Rallied his team with four touchdown passes off the bench to direct the Buffaloes' 28-24 victory over Iowa State. Hawkins completed 20 of 29 passes for 226 yards -- all in the second half -- including a 5-yard toss to Cody Crawford for the game-winning score with 1:30 left.

Nebraska DT/FB Ndamukong Suh -- He might have produced the most unique statistical game in Big 12 history. Suh notched 12 tackles, including four for losses involving 2.5 sacks and a quarterback hurry to pace Nebraska's 45-35 victory over Kansas. And for good measure, also snagged a 2-yard TD reception -- his first career catch -- to help boost the Cornhuskers' fourth-quarter rally past the Jayhawks.

Missouri KR/WR Jeremy Maclin -- Rolled up 278 yards and scored three touchdowns to lead Missouri to a 41-24 victory over Kansas State. Maclin had eight receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns, four carries for 84 yards and another TD and added 76 yards in returns. Maclin caught TD passes from Chase Daniel of 42 and 16 yards in a span of 106 seconds late in the first half and later added a 56-yard TD run on a direct snap.
