Tigers dominate All-Big 12 team

November 30, 2007


— In a year full of surprises, here's one predictable result: The Missouri Tigers dominated the Associated Press All-Big 12 team.

Top-ranked Mizzou placed eight players on the first team, including a pair of unanimous picks in quarterback Chase Daniel and do-it-all freshman Jeremy Maclin in the all-purpose spot.

To appreciate how impressive it is for one team to have eight honorees, consider that the entire South Division had nine.

The No. 7 Kansas Jayhawks, who fought Missouri for the North Division title all season and throughout their matchup last weekend, had four first-teamers.

Ninth-ranked Oklahoma, which faces Missouri in the conference title game Saturday night in San Antonio, also had four first-teamers. Linebacker Curtis Lofton was unanimous.
