Another tough week selecting the best of the Big 12's best. But their efforts on Saturday set them apart.
Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford and WR Manny Johnson: Bradford passed for a career-best 411 yards on 19-of-34 passing with four TD passes to spark the Sooners' 35-10 victory over TCU. Johnson was the main recipient with five catches for a school-record 206 receiving yards and three TDs.
Texas QB Colt McCoy: Accounted for five TDs in the Longhorns' 52-10 victory over Arkansas. McCoy was 17-of-19 passing for 185 yards and three TDs and ran for two more scores on a game-high 84 yards rushing.
Kansas State QB Josh Freeman: Contributed five TDs in the Wildcats' 45-37 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette. Freeman ran for two touchdowns and passed for 272 yards and three TDs, becoming KSU's career passing yardage leader.
Oklahoma S Lendy Holmes: Produced seven tackles (six solo), recovered two fumbles and made a touchdown-saving tackle on a kickoff to spark the Sooners' defensive effort against TCU.
Oklahoma State's offense: A collective sticker for a unit that rolled up 612 yards and reached 50 points for the third straight game in a 55-24 victory over Troy -- a defensive unit that came into the game ranked 11th nationally in total defense. Zac Robinson passed for 254 yards and three TDs, Dez Bryant added three TD grabs and Kendall Hunter and Keith Toston both topped 100 yards rushing.
