Big 12 helmet stickers: Week 12
By David Ubben
Rodney Stewart, RB, Colorado: Stewart carried the Buffaloes to a huge 44-36 win over Kansas State, Colorado's second consecutive win in Big 12 play after beginning the season 0-5. He was unstoppable late, and finished with 195 yards and two touchdowns on 34 carries. He also threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Toney Clemons.
The 12th Man: Texas A&M fans set a school record in attendance and a college football record with over 31,000 students. The ones who showed up were relentlessly loud, slung their 12th Man towels and helped push the team over the edge in a 9-6 ballgame. "I just can't say enough about our students, the 12th Man and our former students. To get us over 90,000, and the noise that they made and the energy they generated was phenomenal," said Aggies coach Mike Sherman. They provided by far the best game atmosphere in the Big 12 this year.
DeMarco Murray, RB, Oklahoma: Murray caught six balls for 120 yards and a touchdown, and ran for 62 yards and another score in Oklahoma's 53-24 win over Baylor.
Missouri's defense: The Tigers notched their second shutout in conference play, beating Iowa State 14-0. Kudos to coordinator Dave Steckel's crew, one of the Big 12's most-improved, for a good performance.
Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State: Blackmon caught 10 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 48-14 win, his 10th consecutive game with at least 125 yards receiving yards and a touchdown.
