Five Big 12 QBs rank among nation's best

The Big 12 has five of 16 semifinalists for the Davey O'Brien Award as the nation's top quarterback, the most of any conference.

The Pac-12 was second, with four semifinalists.

The Big 12's nominations should come as no surprise.

Four of the five Big 12 nominees are among the top seven in passing yards per game. Each is averaging over 325 yards per game. Texas A&M's Tannehill ranks 16th with just over 286 yards a game.
