The Associated Press released their first and second All-Big 12 teams on Friday, and the Big 12 Champs are well represented. Starting with Kyler Murray at quarterback, the Sooners six players named to the first team. All on offense, which is not a surprise. Oklahoma also had another five players named to the second team, and amazingly enough, it includes a defensive player. Linebacker Kenneth Murray received 2nd-team honors.

The honors keep coming for the Sooners too. Lincoln Riley was named the AP Big 12 Coach of the Year, and Murray was named the AP Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year.

As far as everyone not in crimson and cream, West Virginia’s David Long Jr was named the AP Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and Kansas’ Pooka Williams Jr was named the AP Big 12 Newcomer of the Year.

At least one player from each school was named to the AP All-Big 12 first team, and all but Kansas State had a player named to the second team.

Coach of the Year: Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma
Offensive Player of the Year: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
Defensive Player of the Year: David Long Jr., LB, West Virginia
Newcomer of the Year: Pooka Williams Jr., RB/KR, Kansas
