Big 12 helmet stickers: Week 14
By David Ubben
Here's who's getting a helmet sticker for a job well done today:
Oklahoma State's offensive line: Joe Wickline, take a bow. The Cowboys offensive line coach has the Big 12's best unit, and it put together a grand performance against a very good Oklahoma defensive line. The Cowboys didn't give up a single sack, Brandon Weeden had all day to throw, and the Cowboys ran for 278 yards and four touchdowns on 33 carries. As a result, the Cowboys won the Big 12 title 44-10 over Oklahoma.
Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor: Griffin needed a big day to snatch the Heisman, and he got one. Now, it's up to voters. Griffin lit up Texas' defense for 320 yards on 15-of-22 passing, including touchdown passes of 59 and 39 yards against the only defense in the country that hadn't given up a TD pass longer than 20 yards. He also ran for two more touchdowns in the 48-24 victory.
Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State: Another day, another bucketful of carries. Klein toted it 26 times for 86 yards and a touchdown, completing 7 of 15 passes for 158 yards and another score, without a turnover in a 30-23 win over Iowa State to clinch a 10-win season and keep K-State's BCS bowl hopes alive.
