Pringle leads Big 12 standouts
The fun didn't stop for K-State's Byron Pringle on Saturday, as he racked up four scores en route to the conference's offensive award. Texas' Gary Johnson earned a nod on defense, with a pair of Cyclones rounding out the group.
Ehlinger didn't start for Texas, but he was effective in relief of Shane Buechele as the Longhorns won by two touchdowns at West Virginia.
In the Week 13 college football look-ahead, Will Harris explains why he's changed his feelings on one Big 12 team and why sudden offensive issues might doom another, offers a simple look at unders and evaluates a seemingly meaningless Mountain West game.
Wildcats pace top game scores of Week 12
Kansas State posted the best game score of the week after defeating Oklahoma State 45-40. Purdue's upset of Iowa puts the Boilermakers at No. 2 on the list, followed by Texas and TCU.
In a week where the power rankings mostly stayed pat, Oklahoma remained in complete control of everything in the Big 12.

There aren't any big ranked matchups in the Big 12 this week, but Oklahoma and TCU must take care of business on the road if they want to meet later.
Anderson leads Big 12 standouts
OU's Rodney Anderson was equally effective through the air as he was on the ground in a huge win over TCU. Texas' Antwuan Davis earned defensive honors after racking up three takeaways (one for a score), and Texas Tech's Keke Coutee was recognized for his kick-return TD.

Texas coach Tom Herman anticipates All-America offensive tackle Connor Williams to return Saturday at West Virginia, barring a setback this week in practice. Williams, out since Week 3 because of a knee injury, will participate in a full-contact practice Tuesday that Herman called "a big test." Williams might not start, but his return "will be a nice boost to the offense provided he plays well and feels well," Herman said.
