At the midway point of the season, we've put together our midseason All-Big 12 team:
QB: Trevone Boykin, TCU, senior
Heisman hopeful already has 30 total touchdowns, and has carried the Horned Frogs as they've fought through injuries.
RB: Shock Linwood, Baylor, junior
Leads the conference with 803 yards and is averaging a league-best 8.54 yards per carry.
RB: DeAndre Washington, Texas Tech, senior
WR: Corey Coleman, Baylor, junior
With 16 touchdown receptions already, Coleman could shatter Troy Edwards' FBS TD receiving record of 27.
WR: Josh Doctson, TCU, senior
Leads the country with 152 yards receiving per game; second only to Coleman with 12 touchdowns.
WR: Sterling Shepard, Oklahoma, senior
Though quiet at times, still fifth in the Big 12 in receiving and helped fuel OU's comeback win at Tennessee.
OT: Spencer Drango, Baylor, senior
The Baylor offense has been incredible, and this consensus All-American is just one big reason why.
OG: Cody Whitehair, Kansas State, senior
Saturday wasn't pretty, but with this versatile left tackle, K-State's offense had previously outperformed preseason expectations.
C: Joey Hunt, TCU, senior
The inside anchor of the nation's second-highest scoring offense.
OG: Daniel Burton, Iowa State, junior
With Burton clearing running lanes, Iowa State's rushing attack has taken off in conference play.
OT: Le'Raven Clark, Texas Tech, senior
The Red Raiders have given up only seven sacks in 346 passing attempts; Clark also has a 2-point conversion on his resumé.
DE: Emmanuel Ogbah, Oklahoma State, junior
Topping the league with 7.5 sacks and has taken over as the favorite for Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year.
DT: Andrew Billings, Baylor, junior
West Virginia found out the hard way Saturday how disruptive Billings can be.
DT: Hassan Ridgeway, Texas, junior
Has been in a menace in Big 12 play, taking a fumble to the house against Oklahoma State, then dominating Oklahoma in the Red River Showdown.
DE: Dale Pierson, Iowa State, senior
One of the biggest surprises in the league, Pierson trails only Ogbah with six sacks.
LB: Eric Striker, Oklahoma, senior
Leads all Big 12 defenders with eight tackles for loss in conference play.
LB: Malik Jefferson, Texas, freshman
The likely Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year has been a bright spot in Austin.
CB: Zack Sanchez, Oklahoma, junior
Had two picks Saturday, filling the role again as the Big 12's best ballhawking DB.
S: Derrick Kindred, TCU, senior
Has supplied the continuity that has kept the banged up TCU defense afloat.
S: Karl Joseph, West Virginia, senior
Was awesome before a season-ending injury; still leads the Big 12 with five picks despite missing the last two games.
S: Jordan Sterns, Oklahoma State, junior
Continues to be a tackling machine, leading all Big 12 DBs in tackles for a second straight year.
CB: Terrell Chestnut, West Virginia, senior
Gets overshadowed in the West Virginia secondary but has been ultra-reliable all year.
P: Nick O'Toole, West Virginia, senior
The "Boom Beard" tops the Big 12 in yards per punt by a full three yards.
K: Ben Grogan, Oklahoma State, junior
Has a league-high 11 field goals, including the winners that defeated Texas and Kansas State.
Returner: Jakeem Grant, Texas Tech, senior
Electric playmaker leads the Big 12 with 169 all-purpose yards per game.
Returner: KaVontae Turpin, TCU, freshman
True freshman has been spectacular as a receiver, too, with six TD grabs.
