Big 12 2018 Season Awards and All-Conference Team

Athlon hands out its awards from the 2018 season

Led once again by a dynamic offense and a Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback, Oklahoma claimed the Big 12 title and is set for a return trip to the College Football Playoff for the 2018 season. Kyler Murray replaced Baker Mayfield at the controls for the Sooners’ high-powered offense, and this attack didn’t miss a beat. Murray accounted for 4,945 total yards this fall and headlines Athlon’s 2018 All-Big 12 team. The Sooners placed four additional players on the first-team offense, including receiver Marquise Brown. West Virginia quarterback Will Grier takes second-team honors on offense, with go-to receiver David Sills earning first-team accolades.
