Big 12 is consensus All-American leader

The Big 12 had eight players named consensus All-Americans in 2010, the most of any conference.

That number is one shy of the conference record of nine set in 2008, but the league has 32 in the past four seasons, and its 89 since the league's birth in 1996 are the most of any league in the same span.
