We are—thankfully—at the end of the BCS era and entering the dawn of the College Football Playoff.
So as we do when any era draws its curtains, it's time to reflect on what the Big 12 produced during the time of the BCS.

The list goes on, and it's almost a shame that some guys are left off. But for now, let's take a look at the top 10 players of the BCS era from the Big 12.
