Big 12 Game Balls: Week 11
Anthony Pierson/James Sims, RBs, Kansas: You can't put one of these guys over the other this week. The duo was unbelievable in Saturday's double-overtime loss to Texas Tech. Pierson was the big-play guy for the Jayhawks, accounting for 202 yards on just 16 carries. Meanwhile, Sims continued to play the role of workhorse for the Jayhawks, logging his sixth consecutive 100-yard game with 127 yards and two touchdowns on 30 carries.
Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia: Bailey bounced back from a rough couple weeks with a huge day, despite West Virginia's 21-point road loss to Oklahoma State. He caught a season-high 14 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown, coincidentally from backup QB Paul Millard, in the game after Geno Smith lost his helmet a play earlier. He also caught a 75-yard pass and the 225-yard outburst was his first triple-digit output since going for 303 yards back on Sept. 29 against Baylor.
Josh Stewart, WR, Oklahoma State: Stewart was a dual threat for the Pokes, breaking loose for a 46-yard touchdown on a reverse, his only carry of the game. He also caught 13 of Clint Chelf's 22 completions, turning them into 172 yards and two touchdowns in the Oklahoma State's 55-34 win over West Virginia. He's emerged as Oklahoma State's go-to receiver.
Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor: Another week, another big day for Seastrunk, who logged his first 100-yard game a week ago and reached the end zone three times in Saturday's loss to Oklahoma. He tied a team-high with 15 carries and turned them into 91 yards, too. The Oregon transfer is quietly emerging as Baylor's No. 1 back after being stuck at No. 3 for most of the season.
