  3. Texans coach: A Collin Klein believer

    David Ubben

  6. Some aren't buying Baylor as a Cinderella

    David Ubben

    Baylor's never won the Big 12, and really, it's never quite come close. A magical close to the 2011 season to reach 10 wins and capture the program's Heisman Trophy is as close as the Bears have come, but even a six-game winning streak to close the s...

    David Ubben

    The Big 12 couldn't win a second consecutive Heisman Trophy after Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel bested Kansas State's Collin Klein, but the league might have a shot in 2013. Baylor's Lache Seastrunk already says he's going to win the trophy, but jus...

  13. Baylor breaks out some big talk for 2013

    David Ubben
