Big 12 helmet stickers, Week 5
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
It's a little easier to make a decision on helmet stickers when there are only seven games played in the Big 12 this weekend.
Here are my choices:
Baylor quarterback Nick Florence: How about this effort for Baylor’s third-stringer? In his first career start, Florence completed 20 of 27 passes for 216 yards and rushed for 60 yards and two touchdowns to pace the Bears to a 31-15 victory over Kent State.
Baylor cornerback Clifton Odom: Produced eight tackles including a team-leading six solo stops, forced a fumble and broke up three passes in the Bears’ victory over Kent State.
Texas Tech quarterback Steven Sheffield: Completed 16 of 23 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns in the Red Raiders’ 48-28 victory over New Mexico. Sheffield came off the bench to throw TD passes of 25, 20 and 62 yards to spark Tech’s offensive binge after Taylor Potts went down with an injury late in the first half.
Kansas State defensive back Emmanuel Lamur: Blocked the game-tying extra point attempt with 32 seconds left to preserve the Wildcats’ 24-23 victory over Iowa State. Lamur also contributed one tackle and six assists in KSU’s victory in their conference opener.
Oklahoma defensive end Jeremy Beal: Produced five tackles, including three for loss and three sacks and broke up two passes in the Sooners’ 21-20 loss to Miami. Beal has six sacks in his last two games.
