Three Big 12 coaches are among the 10 nominees for the Bear Bryant Coach of the Year Award.
Baylor's Art Briles, Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Kansas State's Bill Snyder are all nominees.
The other nominees:
Bret Bielema, Wisconsin
Brady Hoke, Michigan
Les Miles, LSU
Nick Saban, Alabama
David Shaw, Stanford
Kevin Sumlin, Houston
Dabo Swinney, Clemson
You'd have to think Snyder will go toe-to-toe once again with LSU's Les Miles for the award.
My vote would certainly go for the man who turned the 'Cats around with a 10-win season.
