The Big 12 had a good night at the Home Depot/ESPNU College Football Awards Show, featuring seven players and coaches who claimed eight different awards.
Here's a list of the Big 12's winners, some whom were recognized on the stage and others who weren't.
- Sam Bradford, Oklahoma quarterback, Davey O'Brien Award.
- Michael Crabtree, Texas Tech wide receiver, Biletnikoff Award.
- Colt McCoy, Texas quarterback, Walter Camp Player of the Year.
- Matt Fodge, Oklahoma State punter, Ray Guy Award.
- Chase Coffman, Missouri tight end, John Mackey Award.
- Brian Orakpo, Texas defensive end, Nagurski Award and Rotary Lombardi Award.
- Kevin Wilson, Oklahoma offensive coordinator, Frank Broyles Award.
All of these awards serve as a prelude to the Heisman Trophy and a mere appetizer for Saturday's presentation in New York City. I can't wait for the main course.
