My love of charts is a well-known habit I've nurtured over the years. That's why this one developed by Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News and the Texas Tech sports information department is so interesting.

To illustrate his story on Texas Tech offensive lineman Rylan Reed this morning, George and the Tech staff came up with a list of the oldest active college football players. It has a couple of Big 12 players represented with Kansas State's Alesana Alesana at fourth-oldest college player and Reed at eighth.

Here's the list.
