OU football: Sooners center Creed Humphrey is named Big 12's top offensive lineman again
NORMAN — For the second consecutive season, OU center Creed Humphrey was named the Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year, the conference announced Thursday.
Humphrey was one of three Sooners on the All-Big 12 first team, joining fullback Jeremiah Hall and kicker Gabe Brkic.
Oklahoma State had a pair of first-teamers — wide receiver Tylan Wallace and offensive tackle Teven Jenkins.
But though the Sooners were No. 2 in overall defense in the league and No. 3 in scoring defense and the Cowboys were No. 5 in total defense and No. 4 in scoring defense, neither had a first-teamer on the defensive side.
