The preseason polls and ballots have been tallied, and it’s time to talk.
Oklahoma State has been picked to finish second in the Big 12 in 2017 behind the Oklahoma Sooners. Likewise, Cowboy quarterback Mason Rudolph was selected behind Sooner thrower Baker Mayfield for the All-Big 12 First Team.
Receiver James Washington was chosen for that team and was the only skill position player unanimously voted in. Offensive tackle Zach Crabtree, now-sophomore running back Justice Hill and safety Tre Flowers were also on the first team.
