The Big 12 is amid turmoil as Oklahoma and Texas are heading to the SEC in 2024 while new teams are being added – Cincinnati, Houston, Central Florida, and BYU will join the conference as soon as next season. For the time being, the ten teams in the conference possess plenty of high-level talent on both sides of the ball. This article serves as a preview of those players with All-Big 12 selections across two teams.

Texas has one of the highest-upside offenses in the country. Bijan Robinson is the best running back in the country and is set for an even better season after 1,422 yards from scrimmage and 15 touchdowns in his sophomore season. Xavier Worthy also returns after a lights-out freshman season with 981 yards and 12 touchdowns. Isaiah Neyor and Jahleel Billingsley made my Second Team here and round out the team’s skill position group.

In a rare turn for Oklahoma, the Sooners don’t have any First Team selections on offense in this article. Dillon Gabriel and Marvin Mims headline the passing offense as Second Team selections, but the Lincoln Riley era of elite offensive producers might be over in Norman. Anton Harrison headlines a solid offensive line group.

Baylor, the reigning Big 12 champions, returns arguably the best offensive line in the conference. Connor Galvin and Jacob Gall are the First Team selections here. Their defense also features Siaki Ika (Second Team), a dominant defensive tackle, and Dillon Doyle (First Team), a headlining linebacker.

Oklahoma State, the team Baylor defeated in the Big 12 championship, has my First Team quarterback in Spencer Sanders and a tremendous offensive line featuring Hunter Woodard (First Team) and Cole Birmingham (Second Team). The Cowboys also have a stout front seven that features Collin Oliver, who had 10.5 sacks and 15.5 tackles for loss as a freshman in 2021.

Keep an eye on Kansas State as a sleeper team in the conference this season. Quentin Johnston returns for his junior season after 634 yards and six touchdowns last year, while Deuce Vaughn was the most formidable player to leave off the First Team – he had 1,872 yards from scrimmage and 22 touchdowns in 2021.
