Big 12 alums shine in Senior Bowl

It was a banner day for several Big 12 alums at the Reese's Senior Bowl over the weekend.

Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman, who delivered a pair of sacks, was named the Most Outstanding Player of the Game for the South, which defeated the North squad, 27-16. Oakman also forced a fumble on the first sack.

The South also got several notable offensive performances from its Big 12 contingent. Baylor receiver Jay Lee led the South with four catches for 49 yards. Kansas State fullback/tight end Glenn Gronkowski had three catches that went for 47 yards. Texas Tech running back DeAndre Washington ran for 36 yards, while TCU's Aaron Green added a 25-yard run.

Former Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker added three tackles for the South, while ex-West Virginia linebackers Nick Kwiatkoski and K.J. Dillon combined for nine tackles for the North.

Oklahoma receiver Sterling Shepard didn't factor into the box score, but he may have helped his draft stock in Mobile, as well. Prior to the game, the Senior Bowl named Shepard one of its practice players of the week.
