  2. The Big 12 all-interview team: Local edition

    David Ubben

    You saw my all-interview team last week, but considering I'm not on campus every day during the season, I only spend a finite amount of time around players. The local media gets a whole lot more time, and as such, has their own set of top interviews ...

  6. West Virginia escapes Ames with sixth win

    David Ubben

    West Virginia's defense has been deservedly maligned all season long, and a pair of drive-extending penalties on a possible game-winning drive showed some reason why. Inside the 10-yard line, though, Darwin Cook made the day's biggest play that er...

    David Ubben

    Here's what I'm keeping an eye on this week across the Big 12. 1. Frogs stick together. It's been a trying couple of weeks for the Horned Frogs, but can this team rally without its best player, quarterback Casey Pachall? It didn't get the job done...
