Texas Football: 3 Longhorns Make All-Big 12 Teams

The Big 12 announced its all-conference teams and awards on Wednesday, and there weren't too many surprises.

Kansas State's Collin Klein took home Offensive Player of the Year honors, while Wildcat LB Arthur Brown was named Defensive Player of the Year. To hit the trifecta, KSU skipper Bill Snyder was the easy pick for Coach of the Year in his 21st season.

Texas, despite a disappointing 8-4 finish that landed the Horns third in the Big 12, found three of its players on the all-conference teams.

Okay, so maybe eight wins and third place is only disappointing by Texas' standards, but you have to bet that the Longhorn faithful aren't happy about Kansas State dominating the postseason awards list.

Defensive lineman Alex Okafor and safety Kenny Vaccaro were named to the All-Big 12 first team defense, while OL Trey Hopkins graces the second-team offense. Five other Longhorns were tabbed as honorable mentions.

Read on for more information about these players and their selection to the All-Big 12 teams.
