Big 12 helmet stickers: Week 3
By David Ubben
Time to hand out a few awards for some late-arriving action in the Big 12.
Kenny Stills, WR, Oklahoma: Stills made the biggest catch of the season thus far in the Big 12, hauling in a 37-yard touchdown pass over Florida State's Greg Reid on a jump ball in the fourth quarter. The game was tied, and Florida State had just erased a 10-point deficit. The crowd was the loudest it had been all night. And Stills came through. He finished with seven catches for 125 yards (both game highs) and a touchdown in OU's 23-13 win.
Henry Josey, RB, Missouri: Josey was the last man standing in Mizzou's banged-up backfield, and ran for an insane 263 yards and three touchdowns on just 14 carries. Unreal. That's an average of 18.8 yards per carry and the Tigers led by 42 at halftime in the 69-0 win over Western Illinois.
Seth Doege, QB, Texas Tech: Doege's day already got its own post, and this helmet sticker is a mere formality by now. He completed 40 of 44 passes for 401 yards and five scores in Texas Tech's 59-13 win over New Mexico. That's a completion percentage of 90.1 percent, which broke Tech QB Kliff Kingsbury's record.
Darius Reynolds, WR, Iowa State: Reynolds was the Cyclones' top performer, and, like Stills, came through in huge spots for the Cyclones. He scored the game-winning touchdown on a 20-yard catch-and-run that featured a hurdle over two defenders on the way to the end zone. He also caught a 40-yard touchdown pass on a trick play. He finished with four catches for 128 yards and two scores in Iowa State's 24-20 win over Connecticut on Friday night.
Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor: Two games, two helmet stickers for the Baylor QB. His night was done by the time weather abbreviated the Bears' 48-0 win over Stephen F. Austin, but he completed 20 of 22 passes for 265 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for 78 yards on eight carries. Griffin now has eight touchdown passes and eight incompletions in two games. His offense has hung an average of 49 points a game, too.
