In a stunning turn of events Tyreek Hill has taken Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week honors. Also, I didn’t realize Larry Stephens had 14 (!) tackles on Saturday. (Big 12 Sports)

Five things you need to know about Washington before the bowl game. Good stuff here. (NewsOK)

Bob Bowlsby said he would have voted TCU over Baylor but then he went on to say the committee got it right. What a mess. (CBS)

By the way, that’s now all the voting Big 12 coaches AND the Big 12 commissioner who have TCU over Baylor. (PFB)

So these are two teams who are probably a bit better than their record suggest, which could make for some good times. (CBS)

Watches and backpacks for the bowl gifts this year. Sounds kind of weak, honestly. (NewsOK)

Not as bad as the Sun Bowl’s gifts though. (Big Lead)

The Big 12’s Playoff problem. (PFB)

This on what the committee did poorly is really smart, too. (Big Lead)

A few things here. 1. Rudolph is really good at running this offense. 2. The pop pass is back. 3. That triple option pass to Tyreek though. (CRFF)

Why OSU-Washington might be the unhappiest bowl of 2014. Evie makes an amazing postseason return appearance on that post’s comments section. (PFB)

Honestly the hottest take I’ve ever seen. (Deadspin)

Good look at the risk and reward behind Stoops’ decision to punt to Tyreek. It probably shouldn’t have been up for debate though, again, I didn’t think much of it at the time. (NewsOK)

Own a piece of Bedlam history. (PFB)

Haha, this is great. Central Michigan players react to going to the Bahamas Bowl. (CBS)

Two OSU players earned AP first team All-Big 12 honors. I bet you can guess who. (PFB)

New coach Chris Petersen raced to a 4-0 record, but the Huskies went 0-5 against all five ranked teams it played. Three of those losses were by 14 points or more. (Fox SW)

Hah, why Mike Gundy is Eric Taylor. (CRFF)

Berry Tramel thinks the Big 12 needs to beef up its non-conference scheduling. 2015 won’t be much better. (NewsOK)

The Bedlam game as told by OU fans is something else. Wow. (CRFF)

Marcus Mariota, Amari Cooper and Melvin Gordon will head to New York for the Heisman presentation to Marcus Mariota. (CBS)

Dave Hunziker called Ben Grogan’s kick “a Christmas miracle.” (PFB)

Even if the stakes were low, four of the last five Bedlam games have been absolute classics. (Fox SW)

Five bowl games we wish we would have seen. (Yahoo)

You can listen to the Cheetah’s greatest hits here. Which is pretty great. (okstate)

How rare is winning in December for Oklahoma State? (Tulsa World)

Mike Gundy used to draw Boise State plays with crayons. (PFB)

This is so cool.

So Dana and Jake Spavital “got into it” on Twitter and it was incredible.

Will and Kate got to see Tyreek! Mutombo too.

What do you think the play of the week is going to be? Also, when do you think this will get old?

Hoops

Truth is, the only thing that can revive the All-College is a Bedlam showdown. OU vs. OSU in OKC. That would ignite interest in December hoops in the state.

Get both sides juiced. Most coaches would hate it and the administrators are lukewarm to it. I don’t think it’s going to happen. (NewsOK)

A Kansas basketball player got suspended for a game. I guess we’re even now. (CBS)
