2017 CFN Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year

QB Baker Mayfield, Sr. Oklahoma

He didn’t lead the Big 12 in passing yards – that was Mason Rudolph – but he managed to win the Heisman, led OU to the Big 12 championship, and get the Sooners to the College Football Playoff. Along the way, he had one of the greatest statistical seasons in college football history, completing 71% of his passes for 4,340 yards and 41 touchdowns with just five picks and five rushing scores.

2017 CFN Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year

DeShon Elliott, Jr. Texas

The star pro prospect was fantastic all year, coming up with six interceptions taking two back for scores, getting into the backfield with 8.5 tackles for loss, and with 63 tackles including 50 solo stops.

2017 CFN Big 12 Coach of the Year

Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma

Yes, of course Matt Campbell did wonders with Iowa State – including beating Oklahoma – but think about what Riley did. Not only did he have to take over for one of the greatest coaches of all-time in Bob Stoops, but he also had to deal with an offense that lost Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon out of the backfield, and Heisman-finalist Dede Westbrook from the receiving corps. Even with the overhaul, OU won at Ohio State and rolled to a Big 12 title with a spot in the College Football Playoff.
