  1. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    Players write their legacies in big games. When the stakes are highest, who shines the brightest? No player in the Big 12 had higher stakes and more eyes on him on Saturday than Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein. Kansas State isn't Oklahoma...

  2. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    Landry Jones has seen highs a lot of other players across the Big 12 haven't and never will. A Big 12 title? The Sooners could get their second with Jones at quarterback if he carries Oklahoma to a win on Saturday at TCU. Because of what he's shown, ...

  3. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    These are usually reserved for players who helped win games on Saturday. Truth be told, I feel a little dirty even thinking about doing this. I have to, though. My conscience won't let me do otherwise. Tavon Austin put together perhaps the greates...

  4. Big 12 helmet stickers: Week 12

    David Ubben

    Time to hand out a little hardware for a job well done. Your stickers are in the mail, gentlemen. Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma: West Virginia has played the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week in its past four games. That's not quite a coincidence. ...

  5. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    You hear coaches talk about it enough to make it one of the most cliche of all cliches, but it's also very true. Everybody in college football is going to falter at some point. It won't always be perfect. Who you are as a player is defined by how ...

  6. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    Kansas State was beat up and getting beaten through the air consistently. Collin Klein was on the sidelines, and one big play was waiting to change the momentum in Bill Snyder Family Stadium on Saturday night. Wildcats defensive back Allen Chapman...

  7. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    Iowa State's goal to begin the season was clear: Reach the postseason again. Players talked of it. Fans clamored for it. Coach Paul Rhoads, though? He's hinted all along that this team was capable of more. Six wins wasn't good enough. Reclaimin...

  8. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    In any given week, the best player in the Big 12 just deflates an opposing team and its fans' spirits. Nobody did that like Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein this week. He was, quite simply, unstoppable in Saturday's 55-14 win over West Virgin...

  9. Player of the week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    Why keep it at one player when one play wouldn't do the award justice? In the past several weeks, the Big 12 (and nation, really) sat in awe and watched West Virginia rack up yards and points by the bunches. Coached by Dana Holgorsen, the Mountain...

  10. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    When we pass out this award, we sometimes do it to the guy who puts up the eye-popping stats you just can't ignore. Other times, it's necessary to look the way of a player whose team quite simply wouldn't have won a tight game without his efforts ...

  11. Big 12 Player of the Week: Week 5

    David Ubben

    Let's make this quick, is there any doubt Geno Smith is getting this? There shouldn't be. Smith had the best performance of the week, racking up 656 yards on 45-of-51 passing with eight touchdowns and no interceptions. That's easily the best perfo...

  12. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    It's easy to talk numbers when you look at Player of the Week honors, and if you do, Collin Klein is out of the running pretty quick. But really, Player of the Week honors is about having an impact, and about carrying a team to a win. Nobody did t...

  13. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    We live in an instant gratification society with ever-shortening attention spans. In college football, that most often plays out in player transfers. Not getting enough playing time? Lose out on a position battle? Transfer and try it somewhere ...

  14. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    Earning the player of the week nod is more than just about stats. It's about changing and controlling your game on Saturday. Nobody did that better than Kansas State's Collin Klein, and the big man grabs the Big 12 blog's player of the week award ...

  15. Big 12 Heisman Watch: Week 2

    David Ubben

    Here's how I'd rank the Big 12's best Heisman hopes after one week of games. 1. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia: Smith's Heisman campaign got off to a fantastic start. He'll already tack a national player of the week award to his resume after comple...

  16. Player of the Week: Big 12

    David Ubben

    This isn't a game ball or a helmet sticker. This isn't a mention in the weekend rewind. This space is reserved for the single best player in the Big 12 this week. In Week 1, that goes to Geno Smith. He was picked as the league's preseason Offen...
