Oklahoma State Football: Several Cowboys Named to All-Big 12 Teams


The Oklahoma State football team has been well-represented in this season’s awards.

December means awards time for college football, and the Big 12’s were announced today.

First and foremost, Emmanuel Ogbah was named the Big 12 Co-Defensive Player of the Year. The junior and likely-outgoing defensive lineman shared the award with Andrew Billings from Baylor. Ogbah finished the year with 60 tackles, 16.5 of which were for a loss, and 12.5 sacks, along with three forced fumbles. Ogbah was also named to the All-Big 12 First Team, one of only four unanimous selections. The Player of the Year honors were the first ever for an Oklahoma State defensive player. Pretty impressive, right?

Not if you’re a voter for the annual All-American team. In that case, it’s only marginally impressive:

Ogbah is also the nation’s active leader in career sacks with 28, leads the Big 12, and ranks fourth nationally. He leads the Big 12 and ranks 14th nationally in tackles for loss.

    Not bad.
