Big 12 Football 2018 All-Conference Team

Athlon honors the best of the Big 12 for 2018.

Oklahoma will miss Baker Mayfield, but the Sooners are still loaded for talent for the 2018 season. Coach Lincoln Riley’s team has 15 selections on Athlon’s All-Big 12 team for 2018 – the most of any program in the conference. Oklahoma State is next with 14 selections, followed by West Virginia with 12. TCU (11), Kansas State (11), Texas (10) and Iowa State (10) all reached double-digit selections on Athlon’s 2018 All-Big 12 team.

 

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2018. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2018.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2018. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2018 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
