It should go without saying that the Big 12 could have fared better this bowl season but it should also be noted that it could have been much worse had it not been for the North.
While the offensive performances weren’t as spectacular as they had been during the regular season (lending more credence to the argument that Big 12 defenses were down in 2008) there were some very good individual performances to take note of. Here are my top offensive performers for the conference this bowl season.
All Big 12 Bowl Team: Offense
Quarterback: Todd Reesing (Kansas) – Kansas had the best offensive production of the Big 12 bowl teams with 42 points and Reesing was the reason. He completed 27 of his 35 passes for 313 yards and 4 touchdowns to only 1 interception.
Running Back: Quentin Castille (
Running Back: Chris Brown (Oklahoma) – Rushing 22 times for 110 yards, Chris Brown averaged 5 yards per carry against a Gators defense that only allowed opponents to run for an average of 3.3 yards per carry.
Receiver: Dezmon Briscow (
Receiver: Quan Cosby (
Tight End: Jermaine Gresham (
