The Associated Press released their All-American teams on Tuesday and the Big 12 landed nine players overall on the three teams.
Terrance Williams and Tavon Austin were the conferences two first team players. Williams led the Big 12 in receiving with 147 yards per game while Austin led the conference in all-purpose yards averaging 230 yards per game.
Kansas State's Collin Klein who finished third in the Heisman trophy voting, was the second team quarterback. That's impressive to say the least - and well deserved - considering some of the candidates who put up some gaudy numbers this season.
The Wildcats Arthur Brown also received second team recognition joining Oklahoma safety Tony Jefferson (second team) and safety Ty Zimmerman of Kansas State (third team) as the Big 12's only defensive players recognized.
