Big 12 fantasy football: Season review

By Max Olson

The race ending up being a close one, but it’s officially time to crown Jake Trotter as the champion of the 2013 Big 12 fantasy football league.

Trotter took home the inaugural title (no money, just pride) thanks to the fact he owned the No. 1 and No. 2 scorers in the league, Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty and West Virginia running back Charles Sims.

After 15 weeks, Trotter finished with 1,624 total points and was the leading scorer in seven weeks of the season. Yours truly finished second at 1,591 points, and Brandon Chatmon came in third place at 1,403.
